2.8 KM Treadmill Run

A co-worker invited me to his gym and I decided to accept. I started my workout with a 2.8 km run that I completed in 20:55. My pace was 7:28/km, which is fine for my first run in months. It felt a bit strange running on a treadmill. The last time I had used a treadmill was a couple of years ago. I’ve been running outside for a while. Treadmills are a nice change of pace because you can set your speed and do some splits, accelerate, decelerate quickly.

At my fastest, I was running at 5 min/km. After the run, I relaxed in a steam bath and alternated between short dips into an ice bath and a saltwater Jacuzzi. The regular Jacuzzi wasn’t hot enough for my taste, but it was relaxing. The high intensity showers in the spa area did a great job of massaging my calves, back and neck. That’s definitely the way to relax after a work out. In the saltwater Jacuzzi, I was prompted to rub my body with salt. It was an interesting experience. The ice bath was really cold, but I still liked it. Once you went into the Jacuzzi, your body tingled from the transition. I didn’t really like the amount of chlorine in some of the pools, but it was fine.

I should definitely look into joining a gym near my house. I’ve spotted two large apartment towers/complexes where they have big facilities. They usually accept members that don’t live in the complex. I’ll have to check it out.
