Earlier this week Gillian, Lorna, and myself decided we would start going to the gym regularly together. With ambitious goals and plans in mind, we went to the gym early one evening. Not paying much attention to what time we were going at, we got changed in the locker room and off we went.
After taking one step into the gym, we walked right back out. The gym was absolutely packed. The University of Limerick fitness center is pretty big, but at this point in time it was looking pretty small. Every single fitness machine was taken. There were lines for the different weight lifting apparatuses. It was madness.
Within seconds of seeing that, we instantly turned around and left without even saying a single word to each other. Boot camp could wait another day. So instead of going for a run, or doing a workout that didn’t require the weight room, we went and got food; obviously the most logical option after not being able to work out.
The moral of this story is don’t go to the gym at 5 pm on a weekday. Clearly everyone had the same idea we did. Although, I can’t say any of us were too upset that our alternative plan involved getting food.
Although we had that one minor setback, every other day this week we have gone to the gym together. It makes it so much easier to work out with friends alongside with you, knowing they are struggling just as much as you are. 🙂
