feeling good.....

Um, it was in the low 20's here this morning. I hate running in the cold, so I hit the dreadmill at the YMCA.... I don't mind the treadmill to much. I like it actually. I have a lot of friends at the Y, and the treadmill allows us to run 'together' but separate, (lol- now I sound like my 4 yr old speaking) For instance, today, I ran 7 miles on the treadmill, while my girl friend ran her 3 right next to me. We run at very different paces, so the treadmill gives us a chance to chat it up while getting our sweat on.

After the treadmill I jumped in the pool for a swim. I went 3/4 mile today, and felt GREAT doing it. I am really digging this swimming thing. I need new goggles.... mine really do a number on/around my eyes. I looked all puffy and funky for an hour after I finished. (the 4 yr old made sure I new I looked funny)

Headed back to the Y tonight, with the hubby. He will warm up while I do the abs class. Then we will hit the bikes for a 45 min Spin class. I love Monday's. I get to workout twice. :)

That's what I like about the treadmill as well. As long as I find a friend when I get there.

I like the option of visiting at the gym on the treadmill as well! Problem is I keep getting next to people to want to run a treadmill race and then get off after a mile. Not much conversation!! I wish I liked swimming. Wow-you are really getting quite the workout in one day!!

when i'm on my treadmill at home i hate it. but i remember loving it when i was at the gym. i thought it was so motivating to have other runners, right there along side you, to keep you going.

That sounds like a great day! I never thought about the pacing thing on the treadmill with friends. That would be a bonus :-)

That's a solid start to the week; a little bit of everything!
