2 rounds #HIIT & #ashtanga #yoga

And the big news is, the exercise room has a pull-up / chin-up station now! I haven’t been able to work on pull-ups since the one that ex East Village punk boyfriend “Fluffy” installed for me (23 years ago) finally broke. It dropped me on my ass during a set of chin-ups the month before I moved away from NYC. Both the wall & the rubber stopper it was attached too were crumbling apart.

I did have access to a lat machine at The Hotel but it wasn’t quite the same & I didn’t work out there regularly. I did use the gym a lot when it was hot, to take advantage of the free AC, wistful sigh. It’s actually not too bad downstairs, though if I had my druthers it’d be a bit cooler. And upstairs will be hot. I have to sit on a towel when I work in my office these days. I’ve got a cheap, plastic chair… Today I maybe should rig up the vent for the freestanding AC we got.
