I have a free gym on campus. Pretty sweet, right? And it’s less than a ten minute walk away. In fact, I can almost see it from my dorm. So you’d think that I, being someone who really wants to get in shape and has been working hard to drop post-injury-weight-gain, would be using that free resource to my advantage.
But no. How many times have I been there this semester? Zero. It’s a time issue, basically. I have twenty credit hours this semester, I’m on a variety of organizational committees, and up until recently, I’ve been trying to squeeze in some time to study for the LSATs. So unfortunately, that run I should be doing on the treadmill has taken a back seat.
I’m going to try and go tomorrow, since there’s now one less thing on my plate, but we’ll see. I also have to make up some hours from work that I missed because I needed to study. I still want that paycheck, after all.
How do you find time to go to the gym? Do you wake up early, or maybe go at night? Or have you not yet figured out a solution to that problem?
