Gotta go to the gym

It’s finally warm and sunny in Finland. Temperatures have been about 20C, and it just feels so great. All those long, cold and dark winter nights are finally gone. And it’s getting more and more difficult to drag one’s arse to the gym instead of the ice cream stand.

A basic gym. Only problem I had was with my shirt. It was a bit too long you see, and half the time I looked like I was hanging around at the gym without pants 😀

Gym fashion

I noticed some very funny gym fashion at my gym today. Wollen socks combined  with flip-flops. I know it’s cold in Finland, but people REALLY? That can’t be comfortable.. Anyway, I tried to take couple of different photos than usual, but the result is more funny than successful. I’ll present to you, the one legged gym goer:

After the hard work at the gym, I went for a run (girl has got to do some cardio you know). I ran for half an hour:

  • 5min: brisk walk for warmup (6 km/h)
  • 5min: jogging (7 km/h)
  • 8min: running (8,5 km/h)
  • 4 * 2 min running (10km/h) + 1 min jogging (7km/h)
  • 5min: lazy walk for cool down ( 5km/h)

That was hard, I might just do that thing again! 😀

What’s the weirdest gym fashion you have seen? MC Hammer pants anyone?
