Hypoxia, resolutions, and 5 hours of energy...

With the temp just below 20F, I decided that lifting weights at the gym was a better option than freezing to death. Like every year the 40,000+ students of UofI have decided that their resolution for the new year is to "get in shape". This results in every piece of equipment in the gym being taken up by people that will quit after they realize that drinking beer is more fun than going to the gym. All in all it is not too bad, as people are generally nice about letting you work in etc, but i really think that there was a ventilation problem today. I was finding that I was not recovering well between sets, and that i was a little short of breath. This was not a big deal until I almost fell over when getting off of the leg press. With a light head, and blurred vision, I stumbled across the gym thinking that I was having a stroke or a major cardiac event. It may have just been an asthma attack, but in any case it was not cool. So to the masses of cardio kings and queens, stop taking up everyones f-ing oxygen.

Perhaps I was just a little tired and I could use some five hour energy. If you need to take something that will give you energy for 5 hours you do need to "get in shape".
