I considered my options.
1. Go to the gym for my first ever pump class without a sweat towel and my headband.
2. Run home and grab the items and run back to the bus stop.
Option 1 would mean having to hire a gym towel because if you don't have a sweat towel they don't let you train. Option 1 would also have meant using the aforementioned hire towel more frequently than I would have used my own towel because my headband absorbs most of the perspiration produced from my chrome dome.
Option 2 meant running the risk of missing the bus, and generating additional pre-workout sweat and muscle fatigue in the process.
I took option 2 and missed the bus by three hundredths of a second. So I walked to the gym. It took half an hour, but I arrived on time for the class. After the class which hurt quite a bit-in a good way-I walked to the bus stop, but decided a fifteen minute wait was unnecessary. As I had walked to the gym, why not I thought, walk back. And that is what I did.
Yay for your decision to walk! It may have hurt, but it's probably good for you in the long run. I worked as a singer for years and used to forget my mic battery in the charger at home. Finally, I taped a big sign to the door that I couldn't miss if I were leaving and didn't forget again! Your towel and headband might benefit from a sign on the door, too. ;)ReplyDelete
It's only happened once, and I was talking with my fiance on the phone at the time...and you know about the whole men and multi-tasking problem, right? If it happens more often, I will certainly take your advice. Do you still sing. I hope so even if not professionally.Delete
Missing the bus may be a pain, but it makes for great exercise. And I, too, am grateful that I have legs and feet that get me around to where I need to go. Enjoy your weekend!ReplyDelete
True on the exercise front, and it's not as though I am ever really in any hurry to get anywhere. It struck me as funny that I had never previously felt let alone expressed any gratitude for my legs. Thanks for taking the time to comment.Delete
Walking is usually the better option ;) Sorry it caused you so much trouble.ReplyDelete
The only problem with all the walking is the heat. It's always hot here in Darwin. Overnight temps in the mid 20s, and mid 30s during the day. Anyway, if that's the worst of my problems, I am a most fortunate man.Delete
