This offseason is focused on strength training and weight loss. Yesterday morning, Nick and I went to the gym to do weights and a 30 minute run. When we walked in, the treadmills were nearly all occupied so we started with the weights. While doing our reps, there was a father and son working out near us. The little boy was using some weights similar in size to mine. There were a few times he picked up a weight that I was going to use, so I, in turn, stepped up my game and used a heavier weight. I later found out he was 12 years old; which made me feel pretty weak. Although, he did make me push myself harder than I normally would have.
After the weights we headed to the treadmills. Our gym has 4 rows of about 10 machines each, the treadmills are in the second row. Nick and I chose two treadmills on the right hand side of the row. He began his run; and I was walking due to still having pain from a muscle spasm earlier in my right leg. Anyway, we were both on the treadmill doing our own thing; listening to our own music. About halfway through the workout, a good song came on, and I began lip syncing. I looked at Nick and he started dancing. We then began a silly little dance off – he would “sing” and dance, then I would “sing” and dance. I’m sure we were quite a spectacle for anyone that was watching, but it was fun and made the time go by quickly.
