Just got lucky
View Larger Map
You see my YMCA on the left? This is where I can swim, lift (but not bench), run, bike, etc when I'm downtown Seattle during the work day. Currently, the Y is about a 7-10 minute walk from my office depending on traffic/timing of lights. This is quite close but unfortunately the round trip does have an impact on my schedule.
As a consultant, it can be tough to get 8 BILLABLE hours in my day when I have child care only for a limited time in the day. Sometimes, I need to bring my computer home at night to make up extra time to get everything done and have solid time to bill. This isn't too bad since it does afford me the flexibility to work out during the day when I have missed my morning window pre-work to work out.
Good news - that not-so-attractive building directly across the street from the Y is going to become my new office in May! Our lease runs out at our current location, which we've outgrown, and we'll be moving up the hill to this most perfect of locations. I will be able to zip in & out for classes and workouts with minimal impact on my work day.
As if it couldn't get any better, just north of our new office is our Central Library which is a beautiful work of art and also is where my little guy takes story time on occasion. Another stroke of luck that I'll be close enough to see the little guy at times.
Come May, NO EXCUSES for me to miss out on gym time - I CAN'T WAIT!
