Brian and Anne

going to the gym

So this morning my calves hurt. And I complained to Bill (and he was nice and rubbed them for me) and it was a total mystery why they were aching until it finally occurred to me that I went to the gym with brendand on Thursday and I'm usually sore the day after next, so this was gym soreness.

It's bad that it's been so long since I've been to the gym that I had forgotten what that soreness feels like. I think the last time I went, other than to swim, was before I injured my shoulder last february.

Bill and I have kind of been anticipating joining the new YMCA when it opens, but in the meantime I'm realizing a lot of the people I know are members at the washtenaw county rec center. So if you are, and you'd like to go to the gym with me, please let me know. I'm now in a sedentary job and am backsliding on being in shape and losing weight, so I really need to get out there and sweat. And now that I've made going to the gym with me sound really attractive, I'm going to go for a walk in the sun...
