I've talked a little about some of my favorite people at the gym - yes, I'm there to work out, but you can't argue that people watching at the gym is BY FAR the highlight of each workout. Spin class seems to attract the best of the best and I've written about some of them here (one of them being here) but I feel like I need to add a few more after our classes Wednesday and today. These are classic!
First, the gentleman three bikes down from me and up one row. I know you are older, but you knew enough to have bike shorts and a dri-wicking shirt on so I don't know that I can excuse this. First you wore these:
Yikes. That's all I can say about that.
To the guy next to me. The music in the spin room is REALLY loud. Like, Tom's biking next to me and I can't hear him loud. I can only imagine how loud your iPod had to have been because you were clearly jamming to a different beat.
To the lady that walked in on Wednesday with two inch wedge leather sandals and a cardigan. Oh boy. First, it's winter in Ohio. I think the high on Wednesday was close to 35 - I know, warming trend, but not THAT warm. Obviously you felt the same because you did the whole spin class with your cardigan on. A very nice black sweater cardigan. While I was dripping buckets, you were wrapped in your cardigan. Maybe you were cold because while we were busting our asses on intervals, you were checking your email between each 4 minute interval. And responding to said emails. But I'm so glad that you got your workout in and mentioned to me that your husband has done the Ironman 3 times. I needed to know that.
We're thinking of doing a double spin class tomorrow instead of a trainer ride at home. I can't wait to see the characters that come out of the woodwork for that one!
