Happy Monday, all! I'm giving you a post TWO days in a row! Mostly because I found this picture and it makes me snort wildly with laughter...
...and also because, as a result of actually keeping a running log, I can actually recap my previous week's workouts (as opposed to before where I'd forget what I did 2 days later... getting old is rough). Without further ado:
Sunday: WU on the elliptical + NROLFW 4A
Monday: 3 miles with lots of incline walking, waiting for my knee to stop being a punk
Tuesday: WU on the elliptical + NROLFW 4B
Wednesday: 4 awesome miles on a well behaved knee
Friday: 6 speedy-for-me miles, first run outside since the Zoom
Saturday: 3+ miles on the treadmill + NROLFW 4A
Total miles: 16
This morning I got a quick workout in at the gym, but I think I might have committed one of those sacred gym no-no's. It was pretty crowded (which warms my heart, I love seeing people up and moving!) so the machines were definitely getting used (but not so busy that people were waiting).
I kept an eye on the lat pulldown machine because another guy was rotating between it and another weight machine. When I finished what I was doing, he had moved on to another rotation elsewhere in the gym, so I hopped on the pulldown and did my thing. Only, moments after starting my first set he comes and gives me the death stare while doing sets on the machine next to me.
Thinking I had butted in during his routine, I tried to make eye contact with him to say sorry and offer it back, but as soon as he finished, he darted away. When I was leaving the gym, I got another death glare and the returned to the lat machine.
So, fellow gym rats- what's the socially accepted amount of time to wait before jumping on a machine someone else was previously using? If they move on to something completely different, is it fair game?
Pictures from the Croom Zoom were posted a few days ago and I managed to catch a few of mine falling off the back of a bus (wink wink, nudge nudge). Here's me smiling next to some creepy man:
And here's me kind of running but mostly trying not to eat dirt:
So apparently I can smile but not run, or run but not look at the camera. And I wonder why I have no decent running pictures.
How was your training last week?
What's the gym etiquette when you inadvertently steal someone's machine but they won't make eye contact and run away?
Do you schmuck it up for the camera or do you have sketchy race photos too?
