Slight Irritation at the Gym
Monday, February 18, 2013
Ok - I know the clubhouse at my complex is tiny - we have 2 treadmills, 2 elliptical machines, 2 bikes, and then the assorted machines and free weights. When I got there this evening, both treadmills were taken. Ok - no big deal - elliptical for Katie. About 2 minutes in, one of the treadmills came free. The guy on the other elliptical took it, which I had no problem with because he'd been there longer than me. Well, after about 8 more minutes, the woman on the other one stopped walking. Instead of being considerate and hopping off, she stood on the treadmill watching the machine TV - FOR ANOTHER 6 MINUTES. Now, could I have gone over and said something? Probably. But honestly, if one is done walking or running, one should get one's butt off the machine.
Despite all of this, it was a great day - ate healthily (if just below the calorie range), got in a 56 minute cardio workout AND an upper body workout. Can't complain too much. So I'm going to go get ready for bed and hope that I can repeat it again tomorrow.
