Walked From Gym Home

Sunday, May 17, 2009

I did a 25 minute circuit training at the gym and I came out and my uncle was parked right infront of the gym. He wanted to take the trauck since he just finished working on it so we had taken the truck to the gym. Well I get in and he tries to start it but it won't start. Turns out the idiot is out of gas...the truck only gets maybe 2 miles per gallon so we used up all of the gas. I didn't have my purse or cell phone on me because well I never take it with me when I go to the gym. He starts yelling at me saying I should've had my phone and purse... well it isn't my fault jeez! He's the one that should've checked for gas. Anyways he tells me to go into the gym and use their phone to call AAA. I refused because it isn't my responsibility, it's his truck so he should've done it! Anyways he starts yelling at me more and does what he does best, degrade me so I got my towel and gym card and started walking. I walked from the gym to home in about 30 minutes and if I remember right that's about 1.5 miles. Not too shabby. Only thing is.... I had no water and it was almost 90 degrees out!

    Glad you refused to sit there and listen to him degrade you. Little did he know he did you more good than harm. That 30 minute walk on top of the gym workout did your body some good. I just hope you fully replinished yourself with water once you go home. Again, good for you!

    Good for you for sticking up for yourself. Just wish you had some water with you. I bet you take some water next time. Hope things are worked out with your uncle now.

    Kudos to you, my friend!!! One, for taking up for yourself! And two, for working out your stress on that awesome walk! You did a great job walking that far, that fast, in that heat! I'm soooo very proud of you! Thanks, my friend, for taking such good care of you! YOU are sooooo very worth the effort!

    Awww - good for you, and sorry for the relationship with the uncle. I hope it's all worked out now! I guess having water handy should be a general rule, just in case? I have a reusable bottle that I like to keep handy - once I even used the water when my car overheated...

    Good for you! I'm trying to make walking to the gym a habit (it's about a mile away) but living in Florida makes it hard!
