Gym pet peeves, a new book and I’m screwed

Happy hump day everybody!

My week has been flying by, I hope yours has too 🙂

Workouts:

Monday: 30 minutes on the elliptical + upper body strength

Tuesday: 4 miles on dreadmill

Wednesday: 20 minutes on the elliptical + 1/2 of Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred (level 2)

While I was running on the dreadmill on Tuesday, I got to thinking about all the irksome little things that people do at the gym (what can I say, that thing is BORING).

Here are my 3 top gym pet peeves:

1) People not wiping down the machines once they are finished, GROSS

2) When I am waiting for a machine, and there is someone who is barely using it (talking on their phone, walking at a turtle pace, zero resistance, etc.)

3) Those girls who basically wear a bikini (you have a hot bod, we get it) to work out

Any pet peeves that drive you crazy?

Anyway, today I got very excited because my new book finally came in…

Have you guys heard of it?  The basic premise is that modern-day wheat is genetically altered to create manufacturers with the greatest yield at the lowest cost.  This modern-day wheat is what’s making America fat.

I am not saying that I am going to go nuts and dive off into this wheat-free diet but I am interested in what Dr. Davis has to say.  So we’ll see.

In other news, as I mentioned earlier, I ran 4 miles yesterday and you know what?  It killed me.  My hips and hamstrings are completely sore.  I used to run 6 miles no problem, what happened?  Winter.  Winter is what happened.  Anyway,I just realized that the Shamrock Shuffle 8K is this weekend.  For some reason, I thought I had like 4 weeks until this sucker.  Considering the fact that 4 miles completely put me on my ass, I would say I’m screwed!  

Anyone else running a race this weekend?  If so, I hope that it will be warmer for you than it will be for me (48 degrees, FUN!).

  1. My biggest pet peeves all revolve around track workouts…
    1. Lane cutters. I’m running here, stay in your own lane and I’ll stay in mine.
    2. People walking more than two across. Do not take up the whole track just so you can walk at a turtle pace and chat.

    The other day I saw someone spit on an indoor track. I mean c’mon people haha but thankfully it’s getting nice out so no more indoor track/dreadmill (well fingers crossed!)

  2. Not putting your equipment away or unracking your weights.. UGH! Great post – good luck on your race!
