I had an evening 5K scheduled at the gym my running training group meets at. The 5ks are held once a month and this year are separate from the running group. I get there and it's already lightening. A storm is coming. My coach says he's letting us go inside the gym to run on the treadmill, elliptical or some other cardio. He doesn't let us run when it is lightening. But the 5K runners are going to run. Knowing it was going to storm, I elected to go with my running group. Apparently no one else from my group signed up and paid for the 5K series.
I'm on the treadmill and see it starts to pour down outside. I looked at the clock and it's exactly start time for the race. I didn't rain long, only about 15 minutes. So I do 20 minutes on the treadmill (I like mine at home better), another 25 minutes on the elliptical, and another ten minutes on what I think was a skiing machine. I had cranked up the resistance on it and my legs tired real fast on it.
After an hour in the gym, I stopped home for a few minutes and headed to my beachside aerobics class. We had quite a workout for an hour. Worn out, I headed home.
Today, no running but I did do my dance aerobics class for an hour.
