just got back from the gym and I'm really hoping to walk back to the beach again today... but my tootsies are tired... actually n ot tired but I definitely have to invest in better socks - my cotton socks absorb sweat and stay wet - now I feel a blister forming on my little toe on one foot and under myy big toe on my other foot... gotta toughen up my feetsies i tell ya.
After the gym this morning, I've come tot he conclusion that some men have just far worse manners regarding gym ettiquette than women do.. either that or it's just my gymettitquite that sucks.
So I head over to the weight machines -the two machines I like are the lateral pull down and the seated row... and Ik now how to use them - so I'm watching this group of three guys -with their power bars, sports drink, fitness magazines and towels draped over all the surrounding equipment.
Guy 1 is sitting like he's going to use the lateral pulldown machine - guy 2 and guy 3 are draped over the machines fiddling with the weights coffe clatching... shut up boys and work those muscles not your gums 'k?
they have their towels ont he seated row machine... I ask politely if they are using that machine (and it was politely - even for me) they said yes. As they are stil draped over the other machine... Now I can sneak i there do my 3 sets of 12 and get out before they get one set done based on what i'm seeing on the lateral pulldown.
I think I roll my eyes and wander off to the treadmill...
50 minutes on the treadmill - i come back to the weight machines -and they are still on the lateral pulldown and they've eaten their power bars, drunk their sports drinks and haven't gotten further than that.
Now I'm supposed to l ike going tot he gym -but people like these
morons make it very difficult...
