Evening Workouts Kinda Suck

Just finished a brief workout at our on-campus fitness center. Nothing impressive, just 40 minutes on the rowing machine. Normally, I don't bother with the rowing machine. I prefer the ellipticals or the stair-climbers, but every single cardio machine in the place was in use when I walked in this afternoon except the rowing machine.

The locker room gets a little cramped in the evenings, too. I always feel rushed to change and get out of the way.

Still, working out is better than skipping it, I suppose. I feel pretty good, but didn't want to hit the weights and stay really late.

Better start getting up with the alarm again. The early bird gets his choice of machines...

Glad you're at the gym.
I go to the gym 5 days a week 11 months out of the year.
I skip it in January because of all the New Year's resolution people...

I usually shoot for 4 days a week. I was making progress with 3 so I feel it's acceptable if I settle for that, and 5 is a bonus. I'm most proud of not packing on any holiday weight at all.

Skipping in January sounds like a good idea...but I'm afraid it'd be too difficult to get back into it after a month off. Maybe next year when I'm in better shape.

The Rowing maching?!

I met Paul from "Adventurepan", when I was on the rowing team at Iowa.

During the winter, all of our workouts were on those damn ergs. Now I can't even stand to look at 'em.

I don't like 'em because there's no built-in heart monitor. I like keeping an eye on my pulse. Maybe I'll get one of the watch-type monitors.
