As you know I've been struggling to keep up with my exercise program now that it's become darker earlier in that I just don't have time now to do a proper run. For the last week or so I've been trying to work out what I can do instead - like get up earlier (can't because it's pitch black already when I wake up!) or join a gym!
So I called around to a couple of gyms in the area to find out prices, and I was suprised how reasonable they were! I found a free 7-day pass on the internet for my chosen gym, so I went tonight to see what it was like. I ended up being there for just under 2 hours doing constant exercise!!! I have to say, I enjoyed it more than I thought I would! Of course it's not as good as running in the outdoors, but it's certainly more flexible and has many different machines to work out on.
So - the verdict? I'm joining a gym! I also get a personal trainer every 6 weeks to monitor how I am going! Hopefully that will point me in the right direction!
