The perks of joining a gym in the fall!
At the beginning of August I mentioned that I could already tell that fall was well on its way with shorter days and therefore, fewer hours of daylight. Now in early September, with autumn just around the corner, pitch-black mornings have become the usual and fitness routine changes a must. (The photo to the left shows what it looks like outside at 5 a.m.)
Instead of running around my neighborhood outside in the dark or skipping my a.m. workout altogether, I decided to join my local gym to tackle my exercise indoors. And I can tell you without hesitation that it's great. The best thing about it: I not only get to run on the treadmill or Spin on the stationary bikes, but I get to swim too (a workout I've learned to love and appreciate ever since I began training for my triathlons)! Having access to the indoor pool adds variety to my cardio workouts and makes me excited to get back in the gym the next morning.
