One of the nice things about having a decent income is that I now have a enough money to join a gym and I've opted for a fairly swanky one which has a huge amounts of machines (both aerobic and weights), tonnes of regular classes included in the price and..... a spa with a decent pool, steam room and sauna.
And at £50 @ month the price isn't too bad either - with a decent reduction in price for the couples membership we've opted for.
TBH the spa is a big draw for me but also the running machines - it's been a bit grim the last couple of weeks getting out for runs in the wind and the rain even with my cold weather gear.
And my first session on the treadmill was great - so toasty although I'm a bit gutted about how much pace I've lost since 2.5 years ago when I was well into my Park Runs.
Honestly I used to be able to do 14-15 + KPH for 5Ks no problem but now I'm struggling to do 15KPH for 200 metre intervals - but I'm sure that'll come back - I've had nearly a year and a half off running altogether despite the last couple of months getting back into it!
And it's a very nice gym - although sans water fountains - so I've bought a massive 2.2 litre bottle as there's no way I'm buying water bottles off the gym.
It's a bit of a luxury having this gym membership but it's where I need to be this winter for the double warmth of the gym itself and the sauna...
