After 25 straight days of going to the gym, I’ve decided that it’s time to take a break. The combination of an extremely hectic weekend schedule coming up and the fact that I want to reorganize some of my workouts at the gym have led me to decide that I’m taking this weekend off from the gym. Again, after going to the gym for 25 straight days, I think I’m okay to take the next few days off and get back there bright and early on Monday morning. Plus, most health freaks will tell you that you shouldn’t go to the gym every single day for a variety of physical and mental reasons!
My cardio workouts have been going very well and I enjoy doing them for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that I’ve been able to read through a bunch of my books that were piling up. My weight lifting routine, though, has been spotty at best. I want to take the next few days and – while I’m driving all over the state tomorrow and Sunday – I want to try to remember my old weight lifting workout.
Also, when I start back up at the gym on Monday morning, I want to ramp up my cardio workouts. I’ve been doing about the same incline and speed on the treadmill for the last few weeks and now I want to change that up a bit. Either slow it down and walk for a longer time or speed it up and decrease the overall time on the treadmill.
In any event, I’ve been very happy going back to the gym again and I’m glad that I signed up for the one that is located right down the street from where I live. It’s great having a place to workout so close to home!
