Don't blog in forever, then two blogs in one day. Madness I say! But it had to be done.
I was supposed to be at a course today, but they cancelled it due to the snow storm we're experiencing. The course happened to be at my own gym, so I figured I'd go in to work anyway. When I got there, NO ONE was there. My gym is huge, so only seeing maybe five people there that weren't staff was a really weird thing. Sean told me that it was unlikely I'd be doing a heck of a lot that was useful, so I could stay or go or whatever I wanted. Felt like doing a workout, but because it was also pretty early, I figured I'd boot back to the gym I went to before I started working at a different location to see all the trainers I became such good friends with and NEVER see anymore (Derek actually comes to my gym to train me, with Sean's permission, rather than having me come to him, since it gives me more time to be seen on the floor at my work). By the time I got there, Derek was the only one left. I hadn't missed Maggie by too much, but I sent her a text moaning that I came all the way to see her and she wasn't there. One of the reasons I want to see her so much is she's actually competing in just under a month. She was always super fit and had an awesome physique, so I'm really curious to see what she looks like right now. And I need to find out where she's competing so I can go root for her. haha. Apparently she was driving to Detroit tonight. That woman is INSANE. That's a four-five hour drive on a -good- day, tonight it's probably going to take at least twice that with the snow and whiteout conditions. Yeesh. But I did arrange to have my Monday session in the morning at that location so I could see her, Max and Simone. It'll be nice.
I did see Kyle though, who is the fitness manager at that location. He came over to me and was like "You! Welcome to the team! I've been hearing lots of good things about you!" That was awesome. He also knows that I've been running Derek around like a client when he comes to see me, and actually said "I don't know what you're doing to him, but keep it up. Seriously, this is the best I've ever seen him look." Proud Raven is proud.
I still wanted to get a workout in, and Derek happened to be in between clients so he opted to join me. The looks he was shooting me though! hahaha. We were working out at the same weight on pretty much everything we did, and I was keeping pace with him too. A few reps below on a couple things, a bit lighter on others, but mostly we were evened out. Proud Raven remains proud.
