Gym Freak of the Week

Oh boy here we go, straight out of the freak breading petri dish that is my gym....

Yesterday I was getting ready to get in the pool when I noticed a girl around my age who had just got in the pool as well. This really excited me because at my gym it is mainly old people who use the pool to do water aerobics/look like they are drowning. So whenever there is someone my age I get excited that I will finally have someone to pace off of - and challenge myself to kick their booty even if they don't know that in my mind we are racing. haha


So of course, yesterday, to my surprise there was a young girl in the lane next to mine, and not only was she my age, but she had a cap and goggles on, so I figured it was a no brainer - let's get this work out started.

UNTIL... my swim challenge started doing Bobs.
Up and down the lane, back and forth, bobbing up and bobbing down. I was so confused by what I was witnessing, and I actually had to turn the other way at one point because I thought I was going to laugh at her.

Needless to say, my workout went unchallenged, simply pacing myself off of the clock...

... maybe next time I won't assume that people who look like avid swimmers really came to swim laps. haha

Oh no...that's no fun. Wish I was there so we could do the gym/pool thing together...I don't like doing these things alone. :( It's not that I need a challenge or so, but when I don't feel like doing a thing I need someone to tell me "GO ONE, ONE MORE TIME" etc etc...and then I'm gonna do it...usually. ;)

Hope you're having a terrific day! :)

Well if she looked like an avid swimmer it must be working for her.

Hmmmm.... interesting.

OMG! That's hilarious. I do the bobbing across the pool sometimes. I've never done it as my workout though...or in public.

Haha! I don't know what gym you go to but I really think it could have it's own reality show!

That cartoon completely cracks me up! I wonder why she was doing bobs? I do it at the pool in the summer when I'm bored sometimes, but not for a workout.

Blame the crazy workouts that magazines tell you to do... I read Shape and they're always saying what "new move" will tone your butt best or whatever, but half the things they suggest I would never do in public!
