Ahhh… The Gym.

Okay, so after a week of traveling, baseball games, overeating (over-carbing), drinking, and general celebration around my birthday and my great niece’s birth day, I finally made it back to the gym today.

And here’s the thing:  I liked it.  I mean, I don’t enjoy getting up before 5:00 a.m., getting dressed, feeding the dog & cat, taking my meds, and testing.  But once I got there, slipped into the pool and took off, it felt great.  Every long stroke, every flip turn, all of it.  And I saw almost all of my 5:30 friends from the gym too.  Those hearty souls who get out of bed and do the same thing I do 3 or 4 times each week.  It was nice to hear them say “welcome back”. 

Maybe I get more of an endorphin rush than others.  But even after feeling like I gained 25 pounds in the last week, it still felt great to get Friday off to such a positive start.
