While my brain thought it was just a peachy keen idea to do both levels of YM yesterday, my legs and shoulders begged to differ this morning. (They're still begging to differ if I'm being honest.) I'm trying to convince them that it's a GOOD thing...

So today I decided since they didn't seem to be too happy with yesterday's option, today was BFBM (Burn Fat Boost Metabolism in case you forgot). Man...that is a tough workout. I was drenched when I finished it.

Take that muscles!!! :P

On another note, I was looking at gym options. Through the Department of Ed, I could get a "discount" on NYSC membership - $72/month. When I was going to Trader Joe's this morning, I was on the bus and actually SAW the Brooklyn Planet Fitness - I'd figured it was somewhere hard to get to, being stupid and not hopstop.com-ing it. Turns out it's an easy 4-stop subway ride or short bus ride from my apartment. AND I can go there directly from school without having to change trains! AND for a membership at that club only it's $10/month. So I went to check it out today. It's new, it's got cardio equipment upstairs and downstairs, and it seems really friendly. And did I mention it's $10/month? It doesn't have classes, but realistically with my DVDs (soon to include Bob's new series which I ordered today), I' not going to be taking that many classes anyway. So...

I signed up! :) I'll go tomorrow after summer school orientation!

AND since I've now got access to treadmills, I'm going to teach (train?) myself to run! I've always wanted to, but haven't really managed to succeed - mainly because I've not had access to a track or treadmill on a regular basis to get in the habit. I've found a schedule for a C25K (Couch-to-5K) program I'm going to use.

And I'm shooting for my first 5K to be in early September. I'd thought I'd do the WTC Run to Remember on 9/5 - registration for that isn't open yet. Then I was doing some more investigation and discovered that the Komen Race for the Cure is 9/12. We're out of school that weekend (Thursday through Saturday), and I'd planned to go up to Provincetown, coming back Sunday...but now I'm not so sure. I've done the Komen before, but as a walk. Because I've been close to several people who have had breast cancer, it would mean a lot to make that my first one. So...I'll need to make a decision soon about that.

But at any rate, I hope that by this time on 9/12 I will have finished my first 5K...running.
