Back to the gym

After a few month of sabbatical, I finally made it back to the gym this morning. I was up at 4:20 AM (after having been in bed just before 8 PM), had breakfast, and then headed into the office. I did a quick check of email and then headed over to the gym.

I did 40 minutes of cardio, taking it easy, and not trying to push myself (although I eventually worked my way up to 80 RPM). A little bit of right knee pain about 25 minutes in, but I adjusted my leg motion and the pain went away. I ended up burning 558 calories and doing 2.98 miles.

I feel pretty good for just having made it to the gym this morning.
