Well, that’s it guys. The gym – she is no more. Stupid lease-buying real estate developers and their stupid multi-family dwellings. STUPID.
Sunday | ran 7.07 miles on the treadmill in 1:10
Remember the treadmill? Man, that was nice to have.
Monday | ran 5.52 miles outside in 60 minutes
But time marches on. Circumstances change. We must adapt.
Tuesday | walked 2.75 miles outside in 45 minutes; 80 minute ballet class
Wednesday | ran 9.05 miles outside in 1:40
Thursday | walked 2.09 miles outside in 35 minutes; 80 minute ballet class
Friday | ran 5.15 miles on the treadmill in 50 minutes
This was the very last day the gym was open. I chose to knock out a speed run while I still had the treadmill to help me with the “speed” part. Fittingly, it was one of the best speed runs I’ve ever had. Sigh…
Fear not! I have a plan for signing up a new gym. Pro: it will save me money. Con: it will require me to drive to the gym. Drat. So for the future I’m going to try to do as much of my running as possible outside. Barring scores upon scores of ill-timed thunderstorms, this should work out all right. When the time changes and the sun doesn’t rise until 7am, though, it’s gonna blow.
But that’s future Jenn’s problem. Present Jenn now presents: the roundup.
