1. I went to the gym again today. I didn’t want to, but I did it just so I could post here. Really. I did learn a few things: a)I need my ipod, b)I need to borrow some large print books from the library, and c)I need to wear longer shorts if I’m going to go backward on the elliptical. (And what the heck was up with the dude wearing jeans while lifting weights?)
2. In looking at my calendar and planning my 20 mile runs, it looks like I’ll have to drive the kids to school on those days so that I can manage to run the full 20 miles while Shoo is at preschool. That just seems wrong.
3. I am currently waiting for our “handy man” to come over and take a look at a sagging ceiling in the basement. When we talked on the phone, the word “demolition” was used. That is not a word you want to hear when said ceiling is above the treadmill and Beer Geek’s glass collection. My bank account is likely to not be happy about it either.
Thanks Jamoosh for your informative response to my “confidence” post. It gave me some things to think about….

Great job on getting to the gym. You are one up on me. lol.
Large-print books! You're a genius! I just got back from spin. I hate it, but I'd never work that hard on my own. 🙁 Good job getting out there. And I'll keep an eye out for you at the Love the Run 5k!
Way to go getting to the gym!Good idea with the large print…. I get so bored on the elliptical/bike.
As long as the cieling poses no danger to the beer I will be fine.
that's a great idea about the book…I hate the elliptical but that would help.I love your comment about going to the gym just so you could post it. I hear you sista, I do.
You mean you don't wear jeans while lifting?
I just got a large-print book by mistake and it definitely makes a difference for gym reading. That or I'm getting old?!
See how motivating these blogs are? They actually get you to go to the gym…how cool is that? Accountability at its finest.
Yikes about the ceiling! Hope it is an easy/inexpensive fix!
Demolition…yikes, sounds serious!!
demolition isn't fun.i occasionally see folks in street clothes at the gym. does'nt look comfy at all
Good job on getting to the gym! Large print books are a great idea, the elliptical and bike are so boring!
When I used to go to the gym, I found there's usually one person wearing either khakis, denim or polyester pants at the gym. Mystery.Hope the ceiling fix isn't too serious.
Jeans make no sense in that context!
Home repairs are no fun.Great to read you are working out your long runs!Jeans? You never know what you'll see at the gym!
That is a great idea on the book. I usually can't focus while on a machine and never thought of that. Good luck with the ceiling repair!
I hope the ceiling is not too expensive! Home repairs are no fun but necessary. Smart idea wit the large print books.
I had to laugh at your list of things needed at the gym, I'm the same. If I forget my iPod, I may as well go home. You find the strangest things people wear at the gym, I'm not surprised if I see jeans anymore…but geez, who would want to. Happy Weekend!!
Nice work on gettign to the gym. Finding time to walk in the door is the hardest part sometimes.
hey, I found your blog today, and I'm doing Tall Mom's 1,000 miles in '10 too!
Great job getting to the gym, and laughing at the dude wearing jeans in the gym. You'll see all kinds 😉 Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
I used to think my mp3 player was a necessity for the gym. But as long as I bring a book, I'm good.
