I may not have mentioned it the other night, but there tends to be a crazy late night crowd at the gym. The other night, I watched a girl stare at herself in the mirror while she did a sensual version of the “cabbage patch” dance while her friend was walking an 18-minute mile on the dreadmill with no incline, and she was hanging on for dear life. I almost pulled a “Jillian”. Ya know what I’m talking about. That girl needed a talkin-to about hands on the treadmill.
So the “cabbage patch” girl was back tonight. She jumped on the treadmill right next to me. She walked for a few minutes but started running a 10-minute mile. Yes, I’m a treadmill peeker… shhh! So here I am running my big butt off at a 10:20 pace thinking “how is the girl running faster than me?!?!” But thankfully, she lasted all of 30 seconds and jumped right off. I wish I had that kind of “work ethic”… (sarcasm). And then I look down at her feet. She’s wearing jazz shoes! To run in!!!! I’m not even going to talk about her choice of running pants. Just look at her.
Seriously, WTF was she thinking when she dressed herself to go to the gym? And yes, I took a picture of her. Oh, the benefits of an iPhone. She probably just thought I was listening to music. I feel that people like this just need to be sat down and told how ridiculous they are.
Maybe I should have given up making fun of people for Lent? Nahhh.. I gave up dating flaky ass guys instead. Well, I’m not religious, so this is neither here nor there.
OK, on to other things. You know how I said yesterday how I felt bad about not letting my mom come with me to Orlando for my second March trip? Well, I told her today I’d like her to come along. She declined. Booo.
Am I Cute as a Bunny yet? Not yet, but I did meet my mini-goal for today, and I drank 66 ounces of water.
I have 16 days until I leave for Disney, and I heard there’s another snowstorm on its way here. So I’m just going to do my best to get in some good runs and not worry about long runs. I did 9 miles a few weekends ago with no problems, so I thinking (hoping rather) that I’ll do fine with 13 miles. Plus, I’m in desperate need of new shoes. Mine look a little run-down, right?
I’m way overdue on getting new shoes. They’re giving me a lot of pain. And before you say anything, I know these are trail running shoes. When I first bought them, I was running on the trail more than pavement. But they’ve worked really well on the road. But it’s time for New Sneaker Day!
Oh! Forgot to mention what my workout was tonight. I did 2 miles on the treadmill in 21:58 (10:59 pace). I really just wanted to run for the fun of it tonight.
When you first started working out, did you wear the wrong clothes to the gym? Wear anything embarrassing like what’s pictured above?
