The Gym is a Freak Show (Read 1107 times)

    As I'm getting more experience with the gym I'm slowly getting closer to where the big boys are with the free weights and the things that look like medieval torture devices.  The mirrors are over there also.  The other day there was some weirdo skinny dude in the mirror pulling on a handle attached to some heavy stuff by a cable.  He kept looking for his triceratops, or whatever those muscles are called.   I was really sore the next day.

        Whenever I try to look back far enough to see my triceratops, I get very sore too.  It's a long ways.

            You people are so bad!!  My first "laughed so hard I cried" of the day.  My tech had to come see what was so funny!

            When it's all said and done, no one remembers how far we have run.  The only thing that matters is how we have loved.


            Not A Runner

              There was a lady at the gym this morning working out with a head full of curlers. I admire her multi-tasking.

                A couple of years ago  I was running 10+ miles on a gym TM. A full makeup, perfect hair, cute warm-up suit wearing 20 something got on the TM next to me. She walked. Slowly.

                 

                I sweat, a lot. I saw her glancing at me with a look of horror on her face. She didn't last more than a few minutes.

                  Last week, I discovered that there's a woman who pops into the locker room every 10 minutes or so to give her hair a blast from the blow dryer. Then she goes out, lifts a few weights, and zips back in for a new blast. I'm guessing this is either for sweat elimination or for that I'm Just so Tousled and Windblown and Carefree! look.

                    When we used to go to this gym in south Calgary, my DW talked about this one lady in the changeroom who would walk around naked, put her leg up on the counter, and "dry herself" with the hairdryer. That's just not right... Surprised

                      Not all the freaks are bad.

                      At my gym there's a woman I nicknamed Olga. She's about 6 foot tall, Nordic or Russian with blond hair and blue eyes. She is really built. Everything about her is either parallel or perpendicular to the ground.

                      The funny thing about it is that I have never seen her work out or even break a sweat. She just prances around the gym.

                       

                       


                      Oh roo roooo!

                        Everything about her is either parallel or perpendicular to the ground. 

                        Funny, funny description!

                          I get working out with weights or with an exercise ball.  But curlers?

                          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                              sweat sets the curls. It really does.

                                I finish a run and my hair looks much better than it does after a shower.
