Yikes, a particularly feeble attempt at exercise today. I did manage to run to the gym but with some difficulty and I think I’ve worked out why I hate running to the gym and why it’s so difficult. My theory is that although it’s only 20 minutes, the first 20 minutes of a run is the hardest, so my run to the gym is all hard and all hard is no fun.
My legs were aching today though and I did a feeble attempt on the cross trainer, stopping 3 times during the 30 minutes I was on it, then an achy 30 minutes on the rower, then a v. slow 30 minutes on the bike.
Then I seriously wimped out and got the bus home instead of running or walking, immediately remembering why I don’t get on buses when a very large man sat next to me and an annoyingly noisy child came and sat in front. I got off the bus early. I hate buses.
I would just like to point out that the feebleness of today is in no way related to the fact I stayed up ’til after 1am drinking wine.
