It Was Cold And Rainy So I Didn’t Go To The Gym

One thing I didn’t think about when I said I’d go to the gym every day for 30 days was the weather. Yesterday it was cold and rainy so I couldn’t really walk to the gym and didn’t have a ride, so OOOPS. I didn’t go to the gym yesterday. I can deal with cold most of the time and I can deal with snow. Rain messes me up. To make matters a little worse, it looks like it’s going to rain again today and there’s a chance of rain the rest of the week until the weekend. So, I picked the worst time to commit to the gym for 30 days straight. I’ll try to go to the gym today, if it’s not raining on my way home. I might wait up tonight a little while and see if things clear up. There’s also the possibility that someone will give me a ride, but that is never a guarantee.

Louisville Is A Coronavirus Red Zone

AND, to make things just even that much more complicated, the governor recommended counties that are in the red-zone in Kentucky go back to working from home and limiting activity out of the house. They are only “recommendations”, and not mandates, which means no one will follow them. But, we SHOULD follow them, so I’m not sure what I’m going to do about that. It makes sense to me: everyone shut down and follow the guidelines for a week or two, and then red counties won’t be red anymore. Jefferson county and the city of Louisville is currently a red zone with coronavirus infections. But, the gym is a matter of my personal health. One big thing I need to do is lower my blood pressure, which is one of the motivations for figuring out the gym.

My Arms Still Hurt From The Gym

Also, my arms are still super sore anyways from when I went to the gym Sunday. Maybe I shouldn’t go to the gym anyways. Or at least maybe I shouldn’t work out my arms. I don’t know how to use any of the leg equipment yet, but maybe I could figure that out. Maybe. Most of the equipment had instructions on it, and I could always look stuff up on YouTube or an app, but that is a little tricky because every piece of equipment and every brand is a little different.

So, I clearly have some thinking and planning to do. My day job hasn’t mentioned anything about the governor’s recommendations.

Another busy day. I’ll let you know if I figure anything out about the gym tomorrow.

    I can actually SEE the gym from my window across the Saginaw River, not sure if I should go do at least half an hour of cardio.. on the other hand I didn’t get car insurance yet, there’s a full moon meaning maybe more cops are out… so, i think im gonna stay in the safety of my apartment, but I had to research on it first, on Google, which is how I found your blog…. 😉
