So, I have a secret to fess up to….remember all that ranting and raving that I’ve been doing lately about being so busy and not getting to work out, much less run???
you see my company provides me a free gym membership…
to the gym that is in my building…
that I have an automatic membership to…
oh, and by the way, my company gives me 3 free hours a week to go work out.
They pay me to go to the gym.
But, in my defense, the new gym in my building opened while I was in Mississucky. But I still had all the other perks…I just had to get off of my behind and actually drive 5 miles to the gym on the other side of the base. That’s all.
At any rate, the new gym ROCKS! And I know that because I went today. At 10:00am. Are you jealous? Oh, and I ran. I mean I RAN!!!!! 3 miles. Which on the 1/10 mi track meant that I had to run around it 30 times. And guess what? I did. And now I’m known as the “girl that runs 30 times around the track”. And that is a good thing. Because now I have to uphold the honor of being dubbed “that girl”. And I still had time to shower, and sit at my desk and eat my fabulous lunch of turkey sandwich, raw veggies and an apple. Oh, and more importantly I had time to post this.
Your next question should be “Amy, I know you get an hour free for working out, and an hour for lunch…so how come you have so much time left over??”
Well, I’m not braggin or anything...but it is because I ran those 3 miles in 29:54. And that wasn’t a typo. I ran 3 miles in less than 30 minutes! I HAVE NEVER DONE THAT BEFORE. And I know. I was running on a track. But hey, guys, I’ve done that before. And I didn’t do it at no stinkin 9:58 pace.
So, what does all of this mean?
Amy got her groove back.
(Oh, and my big mouth got me in trouble again. Thursday when I go back to pick up another hour of free work out time….well, let’s just say I’m glad that I can count to 40…)
Happy Running! Cause I know I am!
