Okay, so my morning started off really… weird. It bothered me… alot actually. So, I decided to try to clear my head with a workout.
Little known fact about me, I am extremely competitive. I try to hide it, because it’s not pretty. That’s why I don’t shoot pool much anymore, I have a tendency to… well… cheat. I’m bad at pool, yet I’m competitive… it gets rather ugly. Anyway, so I got on the bike before the other 2 that were there. But something inside of me wouldn’t quit until they finished their workout. Fine. So rather than 30 minutes, I would keep going. Fine. The girl wasn’t any competition really, I think she was only there to be distracting to boys. But here is where my competing nature got me- I looked over at the guy’s display. He had gone 13 miles and burned 440 calories. What the what!?!?!!?!?! (Sorry, been watching 30 Rock) He went further than I did in less time. So… after he stopped (quitter), I kept going- faster and harder. I ended up on there for an hour and I went 16 miles and burned 340 calories (that guy had to have been cheating with the calories).
During the last 5 minutes on there a great peppy awesome song came on- The Dog Days Are Over. If you haven’t heard it, give it a listen, it will make you smile. It made me smile while tearing it up on the bike. It also made me want to dance. There’s nothing quite like trying to dance on a stationary bike. There’s also nothing quite like getting off of the bike and realizing that there are lots of people that were behind you and totally saw you make a fool out of yourself. Yeah. But that’s okay. I had fun… Besides, I could totally beat those people in weird bike dancing competitions any day of the week! That’s right gym rats- consider yourself challenged. It’s on!
