New Digs

A couple weeks ago my department was moved into a different building at work. There were some major benefits to moving that had me excited to move. The top two were 1) getting more space so my co-workers and I wouldn't all be on top of each other in our work area and 2) not having to be in the same space as a co-worker I DESPISE!!! That last one has been absolutely wonderful!!

The major downfall of moving is having to be in close proximity to my boss who can be a peek-a-boo and micro manager (my boss was on a different floor in the other building). But so far it has not been as bad as I thought it would be. Maybe I was just paranoid.

After being in the new area about a week, I was reminded that the building we were in had an exercise facility in the basement! So one day I went and checked it out. It is great (nothing like a gym you pay money for, but still good)! They have several pieces of cardio equipment (treadmills, ellipticals, stationary bikes), a universal gym thing, hand weights, stretching machines, etc. There is also a room for classes. So, since last week I have been using the gym after work to do my running and have been taking a ball class. This way I am more inclined to do my running. Normally I would ride my bike home and then have to force myself to change into my workout attire (which is very difficult to put on when you are dripping with sweat) then go out into the wonderful heat and run. Now I have my own personal fan and a TV to watch so I do not get too bored on the treadmill!

That's cool that you have that available at work. Keep it up.

Wow, you are so lucky! We have a fantabulous rec center at the university, but I work off-campus and have to drive to it. :(

Congrats on getting to ditch the incompatible office-mate in the bargain!

Good for you for getting your running done. I wish I could run on the treadmill, I just feel too loud.

Glad you are away from your annoying co-work and have some space. I'm sure it makes the day much easier!
