I’ve been quite ill recently and as a result haven’t attended the gym for some weeks. I’m feeling much better now and I’m trying to get back in to the swing of things. I like to go at least 3 times a week to ensure that I build up my tone and muscle power.
Normally I start with a row which is my favourite activity but when I went the other day there were two of the machines out of use due to their timers not working. Fortunately someone vacated their machine as I sat at the broken one so I was able to jump in their seat.
I also found myself taking a trip to Argos to buy a stop watch in case they didn’t repair them for weeks. Got to admit they are getting quite tardy at fixing broken equipment lately. I know we are in a recession but come on. OK moan over.
Next I use the weight machines to tone my upper arms and chest muscles and then I move on for my final stage which is the bikes.
Again only some of the screens work on the bikes but I know which ones they are and head for the working ones. There, I told you they were slow to mend things. Lol I found myself perched next to a slim girl with a blonde bob.
She smiled as I sat down and then continued to focus on her music coming through her head phones. It didn’t go unnoticed that she was not just fit but she was FIT! I started to pedal away and set the program on my cycle whilst watching Jeremy Kyle and trying to lip read. Must get some headphones one day. Lol
After cycling for about 10 minutes I was distracted by a loud “Agghhhh” from behind and then a clang as the weights hit the floor. I carried on regardless now in to my pace. Then I heard the same noise again followed swiftly by a voice shouting “come on, come on…yes, yes”!
I’m not joking it sounded just like there were a couple of guys wanking at the back of the room. It was inevitable, I broke in to a smile which soon became a giggle which I tried to stifle as not to draw attention to myself.
Looking across to my side I noticed that the blonde had heard them even with her earphones in and she was smiling. She looked at me and we both giggled and I remember thinking how lovely she was. I had to break my glance because I increasingly became aware that it had turned in to a stare and I had become distracted.
The rest of the session I kept my focus on riding the bike and fortunately the guys stopped their male bonding about half way through. Blonde girl left before me but I’ll be keeping an eye out for her. 😉
