Free Gym Membership

This past weekend, Michelle was able to hook me up with a membership at the YMCA. Apparently this is good at any YMCA throughout the world (hey, maybe I could use it in New Zealand?). Anyway, I’ve been taking advantage of this by going to one of the Y’s located down by my school.

I went to go run on a treadmill last night and accidentally typed in 30 minutes for the run time. Oh well, I shrugged and decided to see how far I could run anyway. I DID IT! I ran the entire time and covered a distance of 3.3 miles. That’s the longest I’ve ever run in one session without stopping.

Amazingly, I feel pretty good today too. 😉 I have to say that I kind of like running on a treadmill better than running outside. There are no cars to worry about, pot holes to pay attention to or any other inconvenient obstacle. On the treadmill you can just bring your iPod and go… and then get lost in your thoughts (and not have to worry about tripping over a log you didn’t see).
