ouch

I joined a different health club. This one has fun childcare—we’re talking computer lab, climbing structure, open gym kind of fun. The noisy boys were having so much fun today they didn’t want to leave. Twin B. actually said, “Can’t we just stay five more minutes?” This is a good thing.

Now, note to self: next time you’re on the elliptical and a trainer stops by and invites you to a “free” circuit training class, don’t go. It might sound fun, but trust me: that workout will kick your butt.

The ironic thing is that before the trainer came by, I had somehow talked myself into quitting my workout early, taking a nice, long shower, and getting a cup of coffee in the café before picking up the kids.

Next time I’ll do that.

Seriously, people. I’m not sure I can make it up the stairs tonight.

The other day I put the littlest princess in the child care center at the health club and went out by the pool and just sat there...no work out. no talking. I just sat. Heavenly.

anon -- thanks for the encouragement! The circuit class won't fit with my schedule, but I may get brave and try another class...

clc -- hey! Let's meet for coffee! ;-)

Jenny -- good childcare is a beautiful thing, isn't it?

Llama Momma, Here's a program you might podcast that I recently listened to that I think you'd find quite interesting.

Jenn said...

Perhaps you should invest in one of those chair things that goes up stairs. If you can sit down.

Llama Momma said...

Ted -- thanks! I feel so loved. :-)

Jenn -- now wouldn't the noisy boys have fun with one of THOSE?!

Man, sounds like some kind of gym! Coffee shop, pool, snack bar, free child care? Are you going to work out on a cruise ship?

If you hurt on Friday, I hate to tell you but you'll probably hurt more tomorrow. It's usually the second day after a tough workout that hurts the most to me!

I feel your pain LM - my friend talked me into a spin class once. It was taught by a spin nazi and I wanted to just die...in the first 10 minutes, the hour after, the next day...

I think eliptical and coffee is the perfect workout!

SP -- It is kind of like a cruise ship. We walked in and Twin B. said, "Ooooh! Fancy, fancy!" But the price is good and the childcare is great. And it's all about the childcare for me. (I used to belong to the YMCA. Terrible childcare. Too many kids, not enough workers. Everybody cried EVERY time I told them we were going to the Y! So, you can imagine how often I worked out...)

Llama Momma said...

Stacey --Yeah. I've seen those "spinning" rooms. I plan to stay away from those!!!

So, you've moved on from pilates to circuits? Wow!! :)
