I was planning on running many miles and pounding the Gu this morning…But instead I slept many hours and am downing the Dayquil. Being sick is no fun!
(Unless you add animal crackers to the mix. Then it can be fun.)
Hopefully I’ll get my midweek longer run in at some point this week. But if not, so be it. When your body says “I’m sick and need sleep,” you just have to chill.
I have no pictures of street furniture, fort men, or toilets in the woods today… but I do have a sneak peak into Gold’s Gym in Rosslyn!I had a free one-week pass to this fitness center near the Rosslyn metro and decided to cash it in the other day.
I signed up for a “Body Circuit” class with no idea what it was and no expectations. That’s the best way to go into a workout, right?Anyways, the class was hilarious and pretty fun. It was “Diva Week,” so we jumped and danced to Madonna and Tina Turner for a full 50 minutes. I wouldn’t say the class was super challenging, but it did work my hips with all the lateral movement!
The instructor took us back to the 90s and made us exchange multiple high-fives. Loved it.
In addition to throwback fitness classes, Gold’s also seems to have a nice open gym. Not too crowded, which is a major perk when it comes to finding a good gym around here.Looks like Vida, Results, and City Fitness were awarded best gyms in the city this year. This Washingtonian article (humurously) describes the scene at different gyms around town… and here’s an interesting post about the gym war going on between Vida and Results gyms. Who knew working out could be so controversial.
Have a healthy day!
