I want to run, gorramit!  
Well. We simply must find another solution for heating the 'gym.' That little electric space heater is not so much as making a dent.

I also need to get cold-weather workout gear. If the gym is going to be that cold, I may as well go run outside. Leggings full of holes won't quite cut it.

Harrumph, says I.
I feel: frustratedfrustrated

I hate not being able to run in the winter because it's too cold. ::grumble::

Aww. I hate cold gyms. Good luck on heating it better.

Thanks! Oh, and you might be amused to know that my hubby has nicknamed it 'Goa'uld's Gym.' I'm trying to get him to make a Gold's Gym-esque logo for it!

Teehee. We call our dog a Goa'uld sometimes because he goes through mean phases and will randomly start snapping at us when we're playing with him.

How big a room is it? How big a space heater? How about a bigger space heater, or more than one? We have a kerosene heater in the garage (in a box, not, like, warming the garage), I'm not sure how it works, but I hear it works well at making cold places not cold.

I have several electric heaters going atm; all seem to rated at 1500 watts, but the littlest one seems to expend most of it blowing it's little fan rather than actually heating air. The best ones seem to be the oil filled radiators. ($30-35 at Home Depot.) Keep in mind that no matter which one you get, it'll take some time to heat up an entire room. If you don't switch it on until you get there, you'll probably be leaving by the time it has had a chance to be very effective. One option is to set up a timer to turn it on an hour or two before you normally work out.

Note: A single 1500 watt heater will take up most of a normal household circuit when heating at it's max ability (1500 watts=12.5 amps out of an available 15), so don't plan to put more than one on a given circuit (or run much else on it) or the breaker will blow.

pardon my illiteracy, what's a Goa'ld?

Oh, the SciFi geek that is me!

A goa'uld is an alien parasite (see the movie 'Stargate' and the series 'Stargate SG-1'). I could get into what they do, but frankly, I think the geek-o-meter would pop.
