I worked out really hard this evening at the Wellness Center. I did walk at a high speed and a high incline on the treadmill. The Center was full so it made me walk faster and longer than ever before.
Next to me, I had a very athletic cronie and she also gave me awesome tips about running on the treadmill too. I just may try that tomorrow.
I filled her in on Thursday’s happenings but to non-lap banders who know nothing about “fills” she kind of gave me a blank look. Hey, all is good.
Afterwards, I took off on foot in the sweltering heat and marched myself uptown to get my mail and literally ended up running into two Class of 1985 classmates on my trek home. One I stopped to chit chat with, the other I kept my head down and kept marching on. The latter is loud and obnoxious and annoying as hell. He was that way 27 years ago and he hasn’t changed one bit. Eh.
By the time I returned home, I was wiped out. And hot. And sweaty. And a little bit achy. But overall, I felt fantastic.
