I went to the closest gym on campus to my office... I should have made a list... I was so flustered. I showed my ID at the reception desk and the woman assumed I was going to the software department... nope... can you please tell me how to get to the gym? Sure, she says... it's on the 2nd floor. So I went up there... this ancient building wasn't built as a gym... so it's not obvious where I'm going... the 2nd floor opens to a big open space with lots of tables and people eating their lunches... no obvious gyms signs anywhere... I see "Women's" over to the right and head that way... I can hear people playing basketball... I must be heading in the right direction... hmmmm... but maybe not... that's just a basketball court... then another door opens to an aerobics class.... then another door might be the women's locker room... but I didn't go all the way in... back out to the 2nd floor place with all the tables... I stick my head into an office and ask if they can point me to the gym... she sends me to the other side... I found it... it's filled with fit college students... I'm a quite un-fit almost 48 year old... I find the extremely fit college student manning the desk and let her know I'm there to kind of check things out... she sweeps her arm across the room to says this is it... UGH... I see a couple recumbent bikes... a couple regular bikes... some treadmills... no idea what kinds of machines were behind those... but there were some... also some weight machines... then she mentions there's a free weight room down the hall and the basketball court & aerobics room that I already found... I asked their hours, even though I already knew them from the website... I also asked if it was busy early in the morning, since that's when I intend to go, she said it's busiest at lunch time... I forgot to ask about showers, since if I go in the morning, I'll need to shower and head directly to work... ugh... I guess the first time I go will have to be after work... so I can kinda check the place out for real and not have to worry about showering... I'm sure those kids are more busy talking about the hot guy from the party last night or the homework they have/haven't done... and not the old lady puffy red faced old lady on the bike... but ugh... this is the only time I'd like to work out with a friend... just to get a feel for the place... ok.... I'm done rambling now...
