As some of you who read this blog already know, I was running on the street a few weeks back. I was doing pretty good, ever since I started the Couch 2 5K program, it set goals that were practical. All was well until I started having shin pain then followed by knee pain. So I had to quit running on the street until I could buy a treadmill.
That is until a couple of my friends told me about Fitness 19 here in town. It's a small gym that has enough equipment for a guy like me. I'm not looking to be the next Mr. America, I just want to get fit and loose some weight. So two days ago I signed up! It's only $12 a month with no contract. You can't really beat that. I can use a treadmill whenever I want for $60 a year. That sure beats having one at home taking up valuable space here at home.
So today I ran 1.25 Miles on it to start Week 3 of the C25K program. Of course I used other things in the gym and was there for an hour. I'm hoping to be able to do the 5K without stopping in six more weeks. I just wish I had something to track my calorie loss on every work out. But I'm going to look more into that later.
