I wasn't really in the mood, but once I got there I rode the bike for an hour and spent 20 minutes on the treadmill. My burn was great. I feel much better now that I went. I'll be going for two hours tomorrow. It's amazing how much better I feel after working out. I don't feel like such a slug.

I found out that if I attend so many times a week that my insureance will pick up roughly 2/3rds of the cost. Hopefully the recovery time on my knee will be quick, but if nothing else I can work upper body.
