I was going to go to the gym after work today for the first time. The gym is at work and provided at no cost to us so I thought I could check it out and use the treadmill there before heading home. However, there was boot camp in the gym so I could not go. I also checked the schedule and there is boot camp three days a week. I'm disappointed because I thought the gym would be a good idea, and I'm not a morning person and lunch is too short. Tuesdays and Fridays are my only after-work options to go and who wants to stay at work on a Friday?!? I will put that on hold for now.
I did use the treadmill tonight though. Couch to 5k, Week 1, Day 2. Same as day one. Eight one-minute runs (well, a jog really) with 1 1/2 minutes walking separating each. My Fitbit tells me I burned 240 calories. I think I love it! I probably burned a couple more but I forgot to record the number when I first started walking (it provides a running total for the day). I think it will help me to push harder each time.
As for the running, it was a little tougher this time, so I would like to wait until Saturday to run next. However, I also wanted to make Saturday a self-sabotage day. It might be a good idea to do both. . .or, it might not.
