Sorry, everyone, MMD has not resurfaced since our last encounter. Tear. No, this week's "THAT Just Happened" post is brought to your courtesy of the over-zealous girl in my spinning class.
Now, before I dive into this week's story, let me just say that I fully support any and everyone who takes their health seriously, and is dieting and exercising in a HEALTHY way in order to improve his or her quality of life.
There, I said it. Now onward...
I cherish my spin classes, and value them as my main form of cardio butt-kicking every week. While I take it seriously, and usually leave the class inordinately sweaty, this week's leading lady - let's call her Health Nut - really took the cake.
The spin room in my gym is small, so the massive fan in the corner prevents the room from becoming a sauna - oh, and the smell of sweaty spinners from becoming overwhelming, but I digress. Enter Health Nut.
First request: "Let's keep the fan off today." Cue grunts, eye-rolls and glares from everyone else in the class.
Second request: "Let's turn the music up loud today, like really loud. I need to be really motivated." That one got an eye-roll + no. Thankfully.
She then proceeds to add a thermo pullover on top of her long-sleeved shirt and tee-shirt combination. Honestly, at this point I was waiting for her to good old-school on me and pull out the sleeveless garbage bag too, but no luck there.
Needless to say, by the end of the class everyone was more than sweaty, and if looks could kill, well, HN might not be with us today.
Strutting (literally) out of the spin room, HN was full of pride in her spinning abilities... when she should have been working on her door-opening abilities. SMACK right into the door to the stairs. No, no, I didn't laugh, but I definitely did shake my head. And laugh hysterically as soon as I got to my car.
THAT just happened.
