To The Gym, To The Gym, Rinny-Tin-Tin

Well, I've managed to make it two times in a row to the gym.  I got a bit of a late start, so I shorted myself the time I would have used to lift.  I did manage another 28 minutes on the elliptical machine; 1.96 miles this time, as I was having a hard time regulating my heart rate.  I have this pesky little condition called paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia - so my heart races out of control for no reason.  It's controlled by medication most of the time, but tonight, not so much.  I spent a great deal of my time trying to keep my heart rate less than 150 bpm, which is typically my "tripping point"; the point at which I can flip myself into tach.

Maybe tomorrow's workout will go better.  I'll have time to lift as well as do cardio, which I'm looking forward to.  AND...the weather's supposed to warm up to above freezing.  It'll be a good day.

Good for you in getting up and going!

I'm sitting here watching the snow fly out my living room window and trying to get the motivation to get into my gym gear and go.

I'm impressed that you even went. I have a fitness center right outside my door and I've gone twice. You have inspired me to give it a go.

Hey Guns-
My last comment sounded pretty bad in retrospect. How about...

"Golly, I wish I had a great excuse like that for not exercising, but I'm just lazy."

Wish comments here had an "Oh Shit!" button.
