Back to the gym!
Wednesday, August 26, 2020
In New York, our governor allowed gyms to reopen on the 24th which is a BIG DEAL!!! Of course subject to restrictions and personal care like wearing a mask. Our gym is going to reopen on September 1st as they are still working through details. For instance, doubt that they will offer classes. We plan to continue our personal training outside as long as we can since that is working.
Our community fitness center opened on Monday and today I decided to give it a try. We walked Fletcher who is getting his "sea legs" back to so speak and being braver about his walks. (Loud noises like a gun shot spooked him about 2 weeks ago). then I went to the fitness center, wiped down the treadmill, turned on the TV and walked a fast mile. Phew! Much harder than outside. Hopped on the Elliptical and made just over 13 minutes. Got a chance to try out new shoes that felt great. Tomorrow will. head back and test a second pair.
Got three new pair yesterday; mine were looking pretty sad and because of a bunion my toe pokes a hole in the left foot!
Feeling great about the gym and upping the intensity of cardio. Since the weather is so beautiful we can continue our outdoor walks and add in a couple of days of cardio at the gym. Add some weights during the week. It's coming back.
What's going on in other parts of the country with gyms? Are you going back? What a time!
