More and more I am starting to feel like the gym is my own personal get away. A place for me to go and relax (in a way). I love that when I go to the gym, I’m usually the only person there (one of the perks of living in a super small town). Every once in a while there is one other person, but usually it’s just me. On good days Marky comes with.
The gym is very modest. It’s 24 hour access – the most important gym factor to me – yet I always go in the middle of the day. No staff, no classes, one TV. Just the bare essentials for a gym.
After successfully completing C25K Week 5 Day 1 yesterday, I’ve decided to reward myself with some new workout gear! This is something I’ve wanted for a long time and I’ve finally come around to thinking I deserve it. And I purchased it with some Christmas cash. So it also doubles as a Christmas gift.

They will all look so excellent with my new running shoes. I can’t wait to hit the gym after work!
Another holiday season has come and gone. This year (like every year in the past) I’ve been spoiled way beyond what I deserve.
One present I was looking forward to and very excited about…. my new running shoes!
They were a gift from Mark and they also doubled as a reward for hitting the half way mark with the Couch to 5K program (successfully completing week 4 day 3). When I originally started C25K I wanted to buy a brand new pair of running shoes right away. I told myself I’d better wait and make sure I can stick to it first, so they would be a reward for completing half of the program.
And yes, I’ve been repeating the week 4 day 3 work-out for at least 3 weeks now. I want to be absolutely comfortable with it before I begin with week 5. Looking ahead at the 5th week work-out is very intimidating!
