    It's January!!

    Up to now the gym has been quiet, really quiet only the regulars. I like that, no waiting for anything, just walk up to a squat rack or whatever.


    This morning... it was solid with people, is this just a blip... or did January just hit?

    What worries me is that these are familiar faces, the semi dedicated regulars (not quite dedicated enough for COVID training?) I used to see last year, so maybe I can't just sit it out 6 weeks and have a quiet gym again. It was nice while it lasted I suppose
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.

    I can't believe it's 2022. Time goes by so fast that I have no time at all. I have to try very quickly to live a good life. Travel. And live a good life.
    So I wish you good luck. And hurry up and live. Because there's not much time left.

    No clue what gyms are live in the afternoon or evenings ever since covid started.

    I'm in 06:00 and have this trouble (actually lately arriving 06:05 and that 5 mins can make a difference to getting a rack)
    Equally: I have no idea about afternoons at the gym, I'm no morning person, just too busy

    I went from EOS, a $16 a month gym that was way overcrowded.... to a local independent gym that costs me $31 a month. Well worth the price increase to not have to deal with overcrowded gym and have to wait forever to get on equipment. Even at 4 pm when I go.

    I've seen no changes in the gym so far - pretty busy so I do have to wait on occasion for a rack or w/e but not too long... but it's army so no real surprises there.

    My gym was pretty sparse on Saturday. We just had a vaccine mandate go into effect on 1/3, so that might have something to do with it. I boycotted them as long as I could stand it, but ended up showing my papers so I could get back in there Saturday morning. Feeling a bit rough today, crazy how sore I am and didn't do typical volume or weights so I wouldn't be wrecked.
