So D and I went to the gym last night to run, since we have a 5K on Saturday and the last time I ran was early December (I pulled a DNS at our annual Baltimore run, since I got no sleep and partially hurled a Clif Bar, had the chills, and a good sweat going...D got a PR!).
So we agreed to face the music after dinner. We would take 1 car and I would go first (I think this was unsaid) if there weren't 2 treadmills. We had no issue finding a parking spot. Our badges worked to get in the gym (it is locked at all times). In the front room, all TMs were open. We like the back room. 5 of the 10 TMs were open. Obviously, the Resolutioners don't run on Tuesday or they have given up.
D finished 3 miles in the time it took me to run a slow 2. I had to walk part of the 3rd mile since my HR spiked up past 185. I have a lot of trouble slowing down a run; I have no trouble walking. I did finish under 40 minutes. With warm-up and cool down, I got in 4 miles. D got in 4.75. As we were leaving, 3 TMs were taken and a gal chose one in between all the other people. And she was wearing a thong.
PSA: You shouldn't wear a thong to work out. I read this (and it was on Oprah.com so it has to be true) sometime this week. Something about the sweat from your ass makes the thong slide forward and the fecal matter moves forward and thus you will get a UTI. This is something I never have to worry about.
