Today Is Not My Day

Today I practically skipped to them gym. [Side note: I made a new rule that I could only watch my HBO shows if I was at the gym working out and I'm hooked to How To Make It In America and I'm also in the middle of Band of Brothers.] So as you can imagine I had big plans. I was going to stair climb during How to Make it, then walk for an episode of BOB (roughly an hour).

OBVIOUSLY I put some time into this plan. But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO the Rush had other ideas. The wifi was acting stupid so I had no entertainment. I MADE myself do 20 minutes on the stair climber then left the gym. I told myself I'd run errands then come back and surely it'd be working.

Fast forward 2 hours when I'm back at the gym and the desk guy's looking at me like "didn't I just see you?". Nope, must've been someone else. I get situated on the treadmill and I'll be damned if the thing still wouldn't work. I was beyond pissed. [at the Rush, at Apple, at myself for not learning from prior experience and bringing back up entertainment] It took everything in me to keep from packing it up right then.

I went and talked to the desk person and she explained that their internet is "crappy" and "they're supposed to be getting us new software soon".

Well crap.

I walked two miles then did body pump. And was mad every second that I wasn't watching TV.

  1. Oh no, she pulled the "getting new software soon" card? Riiiiight.

  2. I used to watch tv while doing the elliptical in college and I would stay on there for an hour getting caught up in Bones reruns. TV makes the time fly!

  3. I listen to music when I run at the gym and they do have TV's but they're hooked to the ceiling and I get cramps in my neck from staring up at them. I'm already spoiled myself too badly into listening to music while I swim so I'm trying to kinda wean myself off all the stimulus but man is it nice to have!

  4. You are so funny, but I do have to admit that I have considered buying an ipad just to be able to watch my shows while I am at the gym lol
