Morning exercise in the Gym(12/07/2009).

I had made up my mind the day before that this was going to be a really long run outside but the weather worked against my plans.  By 08.15am I had concluded that unless I wanted to swim with the ducks that the Gym offered the best option.

35 minutes on the treadmill at a constant pace (which probably exceed my average road running speed) turned out to be an experience which I didn't appreciate on this occasion.  Earphones on and watching the BBC news and the Andrew Marr show didn't help the situation.  I was bored and I probably felt a little bit physically stressed by the constancy of the pace.  A few minutes warm-down on the treadmill, followed by a few minutes on a recumbant cycling machine, and then some stomach crunches on a gym ball whilst utising other torture devices such as two 4kg weights merely aided my conclusion that during the summer period I am not content with Gym-based activity.

Of course, I am glad that I have taken my daily dose of exercise medicine.  I'm ready for the day once again!
