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.
