Gym not open on New Year's?

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Whaaat?! I went to the gym this morning and it was closed. I was shocked, isn't this the biggest workout day of the year? How can my gym be closed? But I decided not to let that get me down. I went home and went for a walk. I live in a very hilly part of my city, and I walked through the neighborhoods behind my apartment (a walk I have not done since last June) for approximately 2.5 miles. Not exactly the workout I had intended but my plan this year is to take it slow so I'm not feeling guilty about it.

But holy crap was it FREEZING this morning and I didn't remember the walk ever taking quite that long. I finally trudged home and froze for the next 4 hours. At least I assume I did after I put on my warmest pair of pajamas and crawled back into bed and slept for those 4 hours and still woke up cold haha. Will definitely be layering up more if I ever decide to take that walk again.

New Year's was fun! Hope all of you had a great time!

    Good for you getting in a workout no matter what! I'm planning to get my first workout of the year this afternoon. My gym better be open, but I guess if it's not, I should take a hint from you and do a workout anyway! They did just put in a nice "urban trail" around my neighborhood. The least I could do woulf be to use it once in awhile. emoticon Way to go on making the most of the New Year!

    I bet if gyms would charge each person who wanted to workout on New Year's day just $5 for entry that day- they could make their 6 month revenue budget in just a few hours.

Way to go on the walk, however frostbite scares should never be a part of an exercise routine. Hopefully your gym will be open tomorrow.

    Mine is closed too. It seems like it has been closed more than open over the last six weeks.

Grumble, grumble.
