My worst workout was on vacation

I am a little deranged when it comes to finally working out.

I don’t skip a workout ever.

I will work out in small spaces, unusual times and with no equipment. I have to get an hour workout in to feel normal, and on holiday it is regularly tough to have a wonderful workout! The worst workout experience I have ever had was on a holiday. The first hotel I stayed in boasted about a fitness room. I was certainly excited by the pictures of the treadmill, sit down bike and yoga mats. When I went into the fitness room I realized that it was attached to a sauna. There was just a curtain blocking the fitness center from the steam room, overheated tubs and massage tables. Since people go in there and expect heating, it was toasty. The fitness room was so overheated it was tough to breathe. I dressed for the outdoor weather so I had long pants and a t-shirt for the workout. I booked three nights in that hotel because of the fitness room. Since nobody but me is deranged enough to workout in a literal sauna, I stripped down to my bra and underwear. I ran on the treadmill with the heating at entirely 90 degrees. I did the sitdown bike, jumped rope and stretched on the yoga mat. The heat made me loose as a goose which was nice. I regularly sweated profusely and felt refreshed. I had to make sure to properly hydrate the whole time so I wouldn’t pass out. I don’t know how the hotel got away without any A/C in the fitness room. Doesn’t seem legal.
