What? The YMCA is CLOSED all week!

My attempt to get regular pool exercise has been foiled yet again.

About a week and a half ago I purchased a one month membership to the YMCA here in Salem.  I was informed that they offer an Aqua Fit class Monday, Wednesday, and Friday every week.  I assumed that they would be closed on Labor Day (since most place are), but what I was not informed (in person & over the phone) was the fact that they are closed the first full week in September as well (for annual maintenance).

Note: Both Olinger & Walk Pool are also closed (due to budget restraints).

I guess I could go to the Courthouse, but I'm honestly not motivated enough to do that.  Oh well .. at least the weather has cooled down a bit and I can take walks.

Ugh - it seems like they should extend your membership for a week for that.

I was just thinking the same thing. I guess it wouldn't hurt to ask them :-)

Maybe you could hit them up for a couple of "free" mommy and me classes for you and Tiberius? That stinks, I'm annoyed for you :-) Don't walk too much...or make sure you are resting A LOT these last couple weeks!!

Gracie and I need to swim, too - so if you change your mind, you are welcome to join us at the Courthouse! :-)

Thanks for the encouragement and suggestions!

I've had two good walks (45 minutes each) this week and plan on one more tonight. Luckily, the weather has been OK in the evenings.
