The one where I get asked out at the gym

I was asked out today while I was running at the gym. I’m dripping in sweat and this guy comes over and says “I see you girl” then fist bumps me. I’m like hey ok. Continue running. Then he comes back a few minutes later and asks me if I’m seeing anyone. I say no. He asks my name and puts his hand out to shake. I said “hey I’m Amy. Nice to meet you.” He says something like “I’ve never seen you around here before.” I told him I come all the time. Mind you, I’m STILL RUNNING at this point. I’m dripping in sweat, breathing heavy, etc. He asks for my number. I tell him no. He asks to give me his number and says his name is Donovan. I said, “Well maybe next time you see me we can talk more. I have to finish my run.”

So there’s the story of how Amy got hit on at the gym on Valentine’s Day and turned the guy down cuz she was too focused on her run.

Embarrassing gym moments

I’ve been asking my Twitter, Facebook and Dailymile friends to share their most embarrassing gym/working out moments for an upcoming article at FitMilwaukee.com. Do you have a funny story to share? Please let me know! If you’d like to be a part of this article but want to remain anonymous, that’s fine with me… just let me know.

And just because I can’t ask you to share without sharing myself… I’ll point you in the direction of two recent blog posts, dealing with farting at the gym and a wardrobe malfunction.

Just another day at the gym… oh wait, crap!

No, this post isn’t a continuation of my last one… Ever have one of those days where things didn’t really go the way you had planned? Well, today after work I got home, changed and headed off to the gym. Once I got there, I sat down on a bench to change shoes. These are the shoes I found in my bag:

Yep, I did manage to grab a right and a left shoe… but just not a matching pair. There’s no way in hell I was going to wear the right one to work out. Those shoes are old and rarely worn. I also forgot to wrap my knee (affectionately known as righty). So I packed my stuff back up, put my coat on and headed home. I got the correct right shoe, wrapped up righty and went back to the gym.

All day I looked forward to working out, but I guess this shoe thing should have been an omen that it wasn’t going to happen today. I biked for about 20 min (4.28 miles), and then decided I would try my day #2 of Couch to 5k training. I made it 8 minutes and righty just wouldn’t behave, so I got off the treadmill. I didn’t want to leave the gym after less than a half hour, so I went to the weight machines and did a few sets of reps to strengthen the muscles around my knee. I got super bored and gave up. At least I still worked out though, right?
