Well y'all I have made it through my first week (almost) of going to the gym. Tonight will be my fifth night and I must say I am kind of proud of myself. On night one I did 2 miles in 30 minutes - a 15 minute mile. Last night I did 2 miles in 24 minutes - a 12 minute mile (yes I finished out my remaining 6 minutes). A 3 minute improvement in 4 days is pretty good in my opinion. I have gotten use to the new schedule and actually seem to enjoy it.
I will admit, I am a creature of habit. I selected an elliptical machine my first night and used the same machine on night two, well the third night - gasp - someone was on "my" elliptical machine. At least last night all was right with the world, "my machine was available. Yay!!!!!
