Woke up early and was ready to go to the rec center, but it was still closed at 8:30 a.m.


                              So I had just enough time I thought to go to 24 hour Nautilus. I can't

                              find my membership letter, but Winnie let me in anyway. Was able to do

                              all the prison bar workout and Roman Chair and some crunches with abs

                              feeling really strong. Now for some reason my comp is acting up. Let me

                              just say I feel really pumped, and I have to commit more to my

                              training. I've raced already and the taper portion is way done.

lets just say the gym isn't so gross if one stays out of the locker room.

Flogging a dead hearst

Have I said I hate to work out at the gym?

  Probably, ad nauseum.  Well today was one of those days when it was justified.  I'm gonna run in the rain if I have to, the gym scene is def not for me.


I started out stretching a little then was going to do 42 minutes on the treadmill.  I got a machine in front of the window with a view of the Xmas tree lot so I could pretend I was running through the forest.  About 15 minutes into it, my Ipod earbuds started fading out.  F that!   The gym plays awful eighties music. It wasn't awful at the time, but contextualized together its really quite bad and not what I need to get pumped up to.  So all of the machines were full so I just only did 30 minutes to allow someone else to torture themselves.


Showered, was going to the hot tub or the steam room, but the steam room was closed for maintenance and I didn't want to be the extra ingredient in the old man soup.


So I shopped at Safeway and bought toilet paper, milk, yoghurt and butter.  The guy checking out before me had earned a $6 Arco gas card, but he didn't have a car.  I asked if I could have it and he graciously gave it to me.  Its Xmas.


So I got the gas ($1.69 a gallon) and headed to Best Buy to buy some new earbuds.  I settled on the Sony Bass Boosters ($15.99) and they are so worth it.  There is no comparison to my sh itt y Ipod earbuds that were burnt out anyway.


So I ate some yoghurt with hemp powder and headed down to the rec center to finish my workout

.  Did the prison bar workout, but I had to invert myself on the decline press to make it an incline, and I never got to use the bench.  Baby mama left the baby bag with baby daddy on the roman chair so I had to aks him if I could move it so I could do knee lifts.  Baby daddy did.
