Gym celebration

I went to the gym and beat my last 5k time!

Last time: 37:05, incline 0.0.

This time: 35.20 and incline set at 0.5!!  WOOHOO!

I’m not winning any awards (yet) but I’m doing consistently better!

When someone accomplishes a goal at the gym, I think the gym needs to set of alarms and celebration bells, drop confetti, etc., to celebrate workout achievements with its patrons. Seriously…I beat an old time and all I get is a row of tvs blaring at me to celebrate me.  Gnar!  I DESERVE APPLAUSE DAMMIT!!  :)

      Yay! A visit from Yum Yucky! Awesome! I love your blog and your sense of humor. When I was jogging I was even thinking that I need to work out ninja style like you! HA!

    I’ll celebrate you! That time kills mine, so you are speedy in my book. Congrats on the PR. Keep it up and we’ll keep cheering you on.

    By the way, thanks for the encouraging message on my blog today. I’ve had a tough week and your comment lifted me up a bit. My wife and I are struggling through a tough job situation at her work. We’ll be fine, but it will be a tough summer. Thanks for asking.

      Hi Clyde! Thanks for stopping by!! (Holy crap that snake of yours was incredibly scary…I would have peed myself on the spot! I don’t frequently have run-in with snakes….only usually while hiking in the Adirondacks. Oooh scary.) I totally get the job-related problems but….what are you guys doing to proactively address them? I find with workstuff I tend to get into a “woe is me” cycle and not do anything at all….which obviously isn’t beneficial to anyone. So…what are you and your wife doing to overcome these problems? *HUG*
