Fun, yes I said FUN at the gym...

okay..mental work is neccessary..
But it sure hasn't been any fun.
I went to the gym today and did a lot of cardio.
I plan to get back into my whole body workouts next week..
This week has zapped my energy on a lot of levels..
so I kept it very simple..
So...now you get to see the me that used to get me into trouble in school

The me that asked my fourth grade teacher if he had a toupee..
The me that got kicked out of my high school principals office for calling him a sell out.
The me that chucked a can of pepsi at my journalism teacher.

Well, I am walking around the track inside..
And there is this older gentleman..
about 50 or so..
And he does not like women to 'pass' him..
you know..kind of like the guys who don't like you to pass them on the highway.
Well, this dude is very competitive when it comes to women passing him..
So, He passes me..
And everytime he passes me...he looks back..to check my status as it were.
He did this yesterday two or three times.
So yesterday I sped up to check my hypothesis..
and as I picked up speed, he did.
So I knew he was 'one of those'.
So today...I was feeling...plucky.
I thought..
Let's see how tenacious he is about this 'no passing' thing.
So he passes me..
I pick up speed...he glances back..picks up speed..
I pick up more speed...he glances back and sees..
to his shock and dismay...that I haven't fallen back.
He picks up more speed.
So do I.
He looks back and now he looks worried.
I can tell you I am starting to smile.
He picks up more speed (we are both walkers btw..)
at this point we are both doing that goofy speed  walking
and he is checking every 10 to 20 feet or so..
By this time I am laughing my ass off...
We did this for a half mile
he leaves.
I couldn't help it..
That was the most fun I have had in a long time..
I laughed all the way through the rest of my workout and even now I am smiling.
Sometimes the gym can be fun.
Chris out.

Once, when I was heavier, I was walking. And 2 old guys passed me. They might have been 90 years old. And they were like "Come on, girl - you can do it!"
So I started limping like a fool and faked an injury!
And then went on home asap!
Funny how our ego can get the best of us.
I would love to have seen your exchange in the gym!

Keep up the great work Chris and stay focused!
