Day two is here and today was a big day for me as I entered the scary, looming place known as the Cedar Falls rec center! Well it really wasn’t scary at all and I feel so accomplished that I could just shout it from the rooftops! I signed up and changed into my workout clothes and headed towards the track. It’s so nice that it’s not busy at all when I get off work. After running a few laps around the track I saw a familiar friendly face none other than my neighbor Don Blau! He was kind enough to give me a tour and some tips about using the center. He has been been going with his wife Linda for several years and was a great resource on little tips and tricks to get the most out of my experience.
After the tour we decided to go into the sauna for a bit. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect since I haven’t been in one for many years. At first it was completely comfortable and I almost fell asleep but after about ten minutes I could see why everyone else was sweating profusely. I had to get out after about 15 because I couldn’t stand it any longer but I did feel very clean and relaxed like toxins had been released from my body.
Guess who is going back again tomorrow to kick some butt?!
