When I lived in the country I used to go for runs.
- My only workout was going for a 30 minute to an hour run everyday.
I would change up my routes and how I ran. Somedays I was all about speed and I went a smaller distance. Other days I would try to go as long as I could without stopping. I had impressive calf and butt muscles from my running days. Once I moved into the city I was surprised that I couldn’t run anymore. Running through the city is difficult. The traffic makes it so you have to stop constantly and watch for cars. There are a lot of animals not on leashes and trash all over the road. I felt scared running in high traffic areas and down dead end roads. I love running for a work out and didn’t want to give it up though. Thankfully I found a body wellness center right in the city. The gym has everything I could possibly want. There are treadmills, stationary bikes, rowing machines and ellipticals. There is a separate weight lifting section, yoga studio, pool and sauna as well. I rent a locker to keep all my gear in the facility to make it easier. I now can run everyday, but on a treadmill. I don’t even do that though. Now that I am in a facility with all different machines, I am working my whole body. Sometimes I do arm workouts, swim in the pool or take a yoga class. I am built better than ever now that I attend this gym.
