A Trip to the Gym
We took our first trip to our new gym yesterday afternoon. This was a Really Good Idea. I dragged Rick through a fairly normal (if slightly gentle) workout for me. He was mostly fine until the sit-ups. I thought I'd take it easy on him, do just 50 standard crunches, then 25 each right and left. He didn't quite keep up, and later his tummy was cramping. But he was a real sport about it all and did the eliptical trainer and some weights and some stretching and some sit-ups. An hour later we were sweaty and decided we'd earned a cheeseburger at Johnny Rockets. As we sat down to dinner, Rick was all a-chatter. After a few minutes of really engaging conversation, he said, "Wow, I feel so awake and alive!" And me, a little wide-eyed, replying, "Yes, I think this gym thing is going to be good for you." So we're fully on the wagon to better fitness. Well, better fitness, plus earned cheeseburgers.
