A Snow Day at the Gym

As you know from my previous posts I prefer to run outside so I can take in the sights when training. The heavy snow that has hit the UK has made running outside a terrifying thought. That being said I can’t afford to take a day off training just because of the snow. So, before giving up on today’s training plan, I decided to give my local gym a call to see if they would let me in for the day…

To my delight the team at my local gym were very supportive. I explained that I am training for the London Marathon and the problems that I’m having with the current weather conditions. The team let me use the gym completely free of charge, and the pool so I could relax my muscles after running on the treadmill.

It’s made me think that the gym isn’t all bad. Unfortunately, they still don’t let you have a month-by-month membership as you need to sign up for 12 months. But, it is really nice to go for a relaxing swim after a long training session. And being able to run in a warm environment on a day like today is a lot more appealing. I just wish I could find a gym that allows you to cancel with ease in the summer months. Do let me know if you can think of one!
