Tip 9: Try the Gym

August 12, 2013

By the end of the day, which was filled with interesting work to do, I was feeling pretty decent. My girlfriend mentioned something about being realistic and not expecting myself to rush back to the city to go to faith-group. So as the office started clearing out, I headed over to check out the office park gym. It’s actually pretty nice, with a range of machines, free-weights and cardio options. No spin bikes, but they did have ergs…or rather rowing machines.

I managed to strap in only my good foot, and work up a decent sweat for a full 20 min, with not completely bad splits, given how out of shape I am in. Then did some abs and upper body lifts. In total was only in the gym for 45 min, including changing/showering time. It was very empowering. And more surprisingly even with the poor start to the day, by evening I was feeling pretty chipper.

Its amazing how one’s internal emotional keel can change so much between 8 am and 8 pm.
