No squats today.
Why? Because of inconsiderate little boys. This kid was walking away from the barbell, so I took that opportunity to go over there. As I’m taking his weight off he comes back saying, “Uh, I was using that.” I figured I’d be polite and avoid a petty argument, so I walked over to the treadmill to run for a bit. After 20 minutes I look over and see that kid and his buddy switching between using the barbell and going to the water fountain. Honestly, I just was not gonna wait all day for these kids to decide to share, and I definitely wasn’t going to use the one in the women’s room that is connected to a pully system. (It restricts your movement to an unnatural linear motion.) So I just left. After I was done stretching in the locker room I went to leave and they were still there. I just can’t stand it when people monopolize equipment when there are only one or two available.
Anyways… I started my workout with 15 mins of the elliptical at 10 resistance. Did the leg press at 60 lbs for 10 reps, then at 80 lbs for 3x10 reps. After that was when I tried to go do squats. Then I did 15 mins of running at 6.2 and 5 minutes of cool down.
Today wasn’t that great of a workout. Not just because I didn’t get to do squats. I just wasn’t feeling it today. I was more winded than usual at the elliptical and running. But I did it.
Now my gym trial is over, so back to pilates for now. I’m going back to college Sunday. I really want to figure out a yoga routine to start asap, and I may just work on that tonight. But as for using the gym at school… I’m not 100% sure if it’ll be open during the two weeks of my extra class. Which is bad because that could eliminate running. I am adamant about not running outside in the winter, especially in a location where we get sooo much lake effect snow. I really don’t wanna be busting my hip, face, etc. After all, I have other cardio workouts I can do. Maybe I could do p90x plyo in the lounge with closing doors. There’s barely gonna be any people on campus anyways…
