I love the new Y. They have a lot of new machines that I really like, including: a revolving stair stepper, new elliptical sand treadmills, a new squat rack, a few new exercise bikes, and a couple new weight machines. The gym there is very good-looking, but only has four baskets for the 2 gyms. The ping pong table is also of good quality , and there are lots of balls. The pool looks suitable, but I have not had the chance to try it yet. The water fountain even has a motion-sensed water bottle filler.
Here is what I’ve done for Janathon so far:
Jan. 1 – First Day Hike at Ouabache State Park.
Jan. 2 – “Second Day Hike” at Ouabache State Park.
Jan. 3 – Rode the indoor bike trainer my sister got for Christmas.
Jan. 4 – Aerobic step workout at home.
Jan. 5 – Workout at the new YMCA on opening day.
Jan. 6 – Rode the indoor bike trainer.
Jan. 7 – Stayed home sick from school. I will have to make this day up at some point.
Jan. 8 – Lifted weights and did the elliptical and stair climber at the Y.
Wonder what I’ll do today? But even more than that, I wonder if we’ll have school. Yesterday it was canceled, and we had delays the two days before that and again today.
Great Colleen! Was school cancelled due to snow?
Colleen responds: Yes! And I’ve already been to the Y today for my Janathon workout!
