FAMILY WORKOUT: Saturday morning the whole family went to the Y to workout. Sarah, our 10 yr old, took a kids' Zumba class, along with a friend of hers that we picked up to come with us. Sook and I took Hannah, our 11 yr old, to the weight room and cardio location. Sook hit some cardio while I showed Hannah the ropes with a number of upper and lower body machine exercises. I focused on helping her use very low weights and easy sets this time around, to learn good form. Afterwards, I did some interval cardio. What a super start to the weekend before we got busy with other activities.
GUY RULES: Some guys are clueless to the fact that there are unwritten rules that every guy SHOULD know. As we left the gym Saturday morning, I was telling Sook this. At this YMCA location, the shower area is an open area. No stalls and 10 total showers. There's a walkway in the middle, with 5 showers on each side. So I'm in there showering Saturday morning after our workout, with no one else showering. A guy comes in and takes the shower right next to me, with all nine other showers available. OBLIVIOT (or worse). That's breaking the guy rules. If it's crowded and most of the showers are taken, then no harm no foul in what he did. But dude, with 10 showers and only me in there, pick another one!
Sook and the girls thought this was hysterically funny. Sook asked what are some other guy rules. I mentioned 2 of them: When you're in the locker room, either before or after taking a shower, don't prance around naked as a jaybird the rest of the time you're there. Put on some skivvies or wrap a towel around yourself. And for crying out loud, if a there's guy sitting on the bench in the locker room getting dressed, and you happen to be naked and next to him, NEVER NEVER NEVER bend over to pick something up right there in his face. That happened to me once. I'm still in therapy........LOL.
OK, to the work. Good workout today. No bad locker room incidents.
