Day 119: cross training at the Trico Centre

fish fartThis morning I was up early and trucked over to the Trico Centre. It was PACKED. I could hardly believe it; I thought for sure it would be a quiet morning at the gym – it’s SATURDAY! Instead, I was met with total chaos. There was some sort of class going on and the guy teaching it was yelling. My ears are still ringing. Thank goodness I wasn’t hungover or I would have turned right around…legitimately.

I was excited to hop on the elliptical machine and complete twenty minutes at a pretty tough pace. Unfortunately for me, the guy beside me must have had back mexican or something because he was letting them ride the whole time. I’m also fairly certain that he sharted because he jumped off the machine pretty quick and headed for the locker room. I even did the “shelter-your-face-in-your-shirt” move – which did not help. At all. My eyes watered. IT. WAS. AWFUL. A total assault on my nose and mouth.

At any rate, I had full-intentions of doing a TRX circuit today. I had a workout all ready from http://www.self.com, but when it came time the TRX equipment was occupied.I tried to get another line set up but was told that people have been STEALING them from the gym – for real? You’re that cheap? I can’t believe people steal that stuff. Anyway, I took that as a sign that I shouldn’t do it (and realistically, tomorrow is a long-run so I’d be pretty sore if I went ahead with TRX today)… so I did a few laps around the track and headed home.

Truth-be-told I am still sore from my workout the other day, so it was great to give my legs and arms a break.Tomorrow is a long run day – I am scheduled for a 8.5 mile run – it’s also supposed to be cold again – GIVE ME STRENGTH!

Hope everyone is happy and healthy out there!
