Mornings at the Gym

So I've thrown my life into a tizzy for a bit. I'm going to the gym before work. Mostly for a 5:45 am (that's the morning people) spin class, but if I can get up and run or lift weights or swim, then it leaves my afternoons free for, well, falling asleep on the couch like I did today.

My plan today was a hourish spinning, mostly on my "flat road" regardless of the instructor's directions. I didn't plan on the instructor being so popular that you need to get to the gym at least 30 minutes ahead of time to get a bike. I've gone to spin classes on Tuesday and Thursday and got a bike with no problem. So I changed my plan.

I started with weights. 21s (7 lower bicep curls, 7 upper bicep curls, 7 full bicep curls), bent over rows (15 each arm), and tricep kick backs (15 each arm). Repeat, on to the treadmill.

I'm not sure why the treadmill was so challenging to me today. I ran for about 2 miles and finished out my time walking. I'm wondering if I'm still recovering from no sleep on Sunday night.

I'm also amazed at the transformation of people at the gym. We all come in dressed to work out and leave posh and ready for the day. It shows me the power of well fitting clothes.
