I'm staring out at our street and wondering if I could get in just 1 mile in today for my Streak. The hubs is not home yet, it's almost 5pm and it's getting dark out. This is when a "dreadmill" is looking really really really good right now.
I FINALLY got back to my exercise class this morning (oh, am I going to be sore tomorrow!) after 1 whole month of not going. I had planned on sneaking off to the side to run my 1 mile around the perimeter of the gym, but I chickened out, thinking it would be rude to do my own thing all of a sudden in front of everybody. This is not your ordinary gym with equipment like a dreadmill (oh, I wish!). It's really just an indoor basketball court.
I thought about parking my minivan in my driveway, windows cracked a little, engine on, to keep Dozer, my 4 y.o., warm, strapped in his carseat and plugged in front of the car TV screen, watching Tom & Jerry for the 146th time - while I sneak in my 1 mile, running 10 laps around my culdesac.
But I didn't.
Go sign up for a gym membership already, you would say, right? I know. I should. I'm so cheap. I don't even like running on the dreadmill, and I have 2 awesome FREE exercise classes that I go to 2x out of the week where I can bring Dozer to play with the other moms' kids! Exercise class and playdate all in one and free. How can I say no to that?
I think this means I NEED to buy a dreadmill for days like today (AHEM - wonder if the hubs is reading this). Not that I would be streaking all year (though I have thought of it), but it makes sense. It would be a great investment. No excuses.
Hmm....Darn. Should have asked Santa for a dreadmill.
Do you have a
