Last night I went to the gym for the first time in months. I was feeling angry and annoyed and knew I wouldn’t be able to get to sleep at a reasonable hour anyway, so I decided to go work out. At midnight. My gym has a 24-hour location about five blocks from my apartment, so I might as well take advantage of that, right? It seemed like a good idea at the time, although I had cause to regret my decision when my alarm went off at 6:30 this morning!
The gym is weird at midnight. It’s really quiet, which is awesome since I hate it when it’s super crowded. It’s pretty much just big beefy guys who work out that late- there were only three other women there, and I think two of them just stayed in the locker room, which is pretty weird. I don’t know if I’d go that late again; I’m pretty fuzzy-headed and sleepy today so I don’t think midnight workouts are very sustainable over the long term.
