I'm a mom. If I leave my kids at home, I'm on a pretty tight limit before I need to be home! So I sort of
Today a "newbie" decided to get the front desk to start kicking everyone off the treadmills, yet there was no line! My solution? I decided to run for 30 minutes, then get off my treadmill and use those 5 minutes for water and light stretching, then sign myself right back onto my treadmill. Hey, I followed the rules (sort-of). I did get a look from the "newbie"...but she'll be gone in a few weeks so that's okay!
(And I should mention again, I am always so proud of anyone who joins a gym, no matter the time of month....I just really, really, really like my treadmill schedule not to be disrupted. Having kids, if I get to the gym and the treadmills are full, I'm off to the bike. Still great exercise....but not the same.)
