This weekend my cousin, John, is getting married to his longtime love, Tara. The nuptials were held in Buffalo, NY and the majority of the family congregated to help the couple celebrate. Although the celebrating started last night, I still had to squeeze in a workout.
Luckily, my brother, his wife and my cousins are pretty dedicated gym goers and came with me. Little did we know that the pictures of the gym at our hotel that the website boasted, were far from what the gym actually looked like. There were three machines; a treadmill, bike and eliptical-ish thing. We took turns doing our own type of circuit workouts and got the tiny room’s temperature up to at least 101 degrees. At one point my brother and I did a quick treadmill switch-off and I hopped right on thinking I could be smooth about the transition. BOY was I wrong. Thank goodness I had a death grip on the bar across the top because if I hadn’t, then this challenge would have ended today!
I am not really sure how to report what my workout was, but I think it looks like this: 15 minutes on the eliptical-ish thing, 10 minutes on the treadmill, 7 on the bike (apparently that was not my thing today), lots of planks/core work and numerous free weight lifting.
If I could workout with my family everyday, then there is no doubt in my mind that I would finish this challenge. If you haven’t taken the time to sweat with your fam lately, I highly recommend it!
