So that trial gym membership is absolutely expired, so it was back to the rec center to lift some weights. Was glad to be back. Did the usual bar routine and added the element of bent over rows putting my toes up on 8 lb. barbells to make a training exercise that incorporated the calf strengthening asana I learned last night in yoga class and also did the overhead lift lunges. I need to really work on form with those lunges. Was another guy doing the prison bar workout. He looked Thai and had the body of a welter weight kick boxer. Seeing him work out with no weight was validating. There was a different mix there in the weight room, I went round after lunch. It was great, felt strong.
I noticed when I went there someone had put the place in order, on a piece of binder paper in phat inflated script was 'Please help and keep the weight room clean.' Tite. Still there was one guy just sitting there in the way and the room was crowded. Was kind of all hey, but this is a space that we all have to share.
I feel proud that I can work out in that environment and help to support San Francisco Recreation and Parks by using the local facilities.
After that went to REI and got a balaclava for BC. I have a fetish for ski clothes.

. I like working with the bar and no weights seeing what I can do. I came up with a bent over row and did lunges and squats. Back to the roman chair. Didn't get to hit the bench or decline. Just the incline.
Still people leave their McDonalds Breakfust Muffin packages all over the exercise room and don't put their weights back. No respect for the gym. Oh well, I'm fussy. But I felt hella butch and tuff.
Now I'm going to the Castro to get tix for the Milk biopic and some coffee for the week. Really going to avoid running this week as to give myself a time to recover.
