Ow.. it hurts already
Just got back from my first Gym Session for 2 months (and 1 day). I already feel a little sore in the stomach area after doing 20 sit-ups of death. Its gonna be the kind of pain that throbs like a Jack Daniels enflamed ulcer. I hope that by the *real* summer i will have buns of steel and will look *buff* enough to remove my top in between the rain showers. I decided to ease slowly back into the routine and only ran 1.5 miles (in about 15 mins), 5 mins of cycling and a serious bash on the Multigym equipment. As of next week i will increase my running distance and perhaps even get out round the lake a few times as running on the treadmill is no real indication of how far you can run, just how long you can keep your legs moving. I was in there on my own for the whole time - which was nice. I had to endure the local radio station though which was as shite as usual. "Crap Hits from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and today!... but first... an advert for the local carpet showroom". If i had my 20gb iPod with me, some pumping trance would have made it all alot easier (i hope). But no doubt it would have shuffled onto something else and i would have been running to "Christmas in the stars" from the Star Wars Xmas Album. "What do you mean Artoo? reindeers can't fly!"
