The crowded gym
Whenever I do cardio, I usually run on the treadmills at the gym in my building. Today, however, I was off from work so I decided I’d run at my gym in New York City. And I’m glad I did because I had such an awesome run. I ran for 40 minutes at 6 speed and with a varying incline. Basically, the incline would spike for one minute, and then drop for one minute. Repeat. Each spike was either 3.4 incline, 4 incline, 6 incline, or 7 incline. Not once did I feel tired. My heart rate was an average of 172.
I think what I enjoyed the most was the crowd. I love working out with other people around me. I don’t want a super crowded gym, but just enough people for a nice bubble of energy. It also helped that the people surrounding me were actually into their workouts and not just walking on the treadmill.
