I don't know how people do it. No, not that... get your mind out of the gutter. I'm talking about the gym. I went to the gym today to do some cardio... at 4:30pm. It was so crowded. I got on the machines I needed, got a locker, and was able to shower. What I missed was my time in the steam room. I just didn't want to go in given that there were so many people going in and out of it. For some reason, I have forgotten how busy Monday nights are at the gym. Acccchhhh!
Since I started working for a grocery store, I have been able to visit the gym at "off hours". I tend to get the pick of the machinery and equipment. I tend to have the steam room to myself. It's so nice to be able to not have to wait for anything or be concious of someone else in the room with you. The lockerrooms also tend to be less populated at times that I go, so I don't have to worry about having a person right on top of me as I try to open my locker. It's all so wonderful and easy-going.
Tonight was just insane. As I got to the gym, I noticed a good amount of people walking into it. That was my first indication of what I was about to face. On the way to the lockerroom, I passed by the weight room which was full of people. Well, that ruled out any chance of me lifting. So, I headed upstairs, with Discman, to do some cardio. The only available Stairmaster was "out of order". For about a millisecond, I considered giving it a try, especially since the guy on the one next to it had a really nice butt. Luckily, there was an available working treadmill, so I jumped on and began walking. That's when I realized that all the machines were now taken. Talk about overstimulated. Acccchhhhh!
I don't know how you guys put up with that. And to think, most of you pay to be part of it. I kinda suck it up because I do get a free gym membership for working for them. I guess I just have to suck it up and deal with it while I have the early shift at work. Accccchhhhh! Later.
