I don’t have any new years resolutions. I just want to continue my efforts in getting spartan fit. Since I’ve been off from work since before Christmas, I’ve had a lot of flexibility to fit in a run, hike, or strength training session (however primitive). That all ends tomorrow — when I return to my nine-to-five. And even though my body needed a rest day, I made a conscious effort to get to the gym today just to start the year off right.
I expected the gym to be crowded — with the influx of resolution warriors. Much to my surprise, the parking lot was pretty empty and I found an empty locker with ease. Although I like to see people making positive changes in their health during this time of year, I often get frustrated with the disruption in the normal gym-rat buzz. Today, I was relieved that the crowds haven’t quite made the change as of yet.
I lifted a few dumbbells this way and that, played around on the turf for a bit, then went back inside to stretch and foam roll. Then I watched as YaYa finished up his workout while the gym emptied out for the early new years day closure.
