Making progress

Woke up this morning and the first thought in my head was I was too sore to go to the gym. After a few cups of coffee and reading the paper I was starting to feel better. Finally around 9:30 I made the big effort to get up there. Why is getting out the door always the hardest thing?
Started with 15 minutes on the elliptical, checked out the floor below and there weren't many by the free weights which was where I was headed next. I did all 3 sets of each exercise and then went back up to use the treadmill. I did 2 minutes at each incline working my way up to 10 and then 2 minutes at each back down to level one.
I feel like I am making progress, have now worked out for two weeks. It's good to be back in the gym.

Out the door

I was out the door and off to the gym early today. I was afraid it might be crowed but was surprised how few people were there. I'm into my second week of the runners workout, this means increase weights and lower reps to 10. I start out with a 15 minute warm up on the elliptical and then go into my weights. it was different with the increased weights and I was glad when I reached 10 reps. After doing the weightsI head back up stairs and try to do at lest a mile or better on the treadmill.
