I have to say though, that I really enjoy that machine where you step onto these pedal like things and march, kind of. I'm not describing it well. Oh the elliptical machines. That's what I mean. I like those. They're much easier on my knees than a treadmill. So I like doing that, and I've foregone wearing a sports bra. I just can't stand them, so I wear a regular one, go to the ladies' only room, and just bounce a little. I realize women probably don't appreciate it at all, but that's okay. I try to stay away from them.
So I go to the gym, dig out my iphone with the ipod inside of it and my earphones, throw the rest of my scattered life into a locker, and head for the ellipticals.
I spend a few minutes carefully arranging my earphones in my ears so they aren't uncomfortable, and then I start. I always thought working out to music was overrated, but I really like working out to The Pogues, of all things, this song in particular:
I start sweating pretty hard, but then strangely, I want to go out and kick some ass. It's a good feeling.
