in the last 15 minutes of my weights/strength class
a hybrid mix of
people in the gym
people at home
someone felt compelled
to become the new center of attention
by jumping on the equipment
right behind the trainer
who was teaching live
she did not appear to be thrilled
with his spontaneous performance
but i did workout my abs with such a good laugh.
“i don’t like to be center of attention, except for when I want to be the center of attention.”
olive, who is far from a gym rat
watches the instructor intently
she may be considering asking me to be her home training partner
i’m going to have to step up my game.
“friends that sweat together stay together.”
yep, not me.
just wondering why my fitness app
is willing to measure
pole dancing but not pole vaulting
both involve strength and flying.
“i have tennis shoes with little rhinestones that I slip on if I exercise.
but I always wear heels, even around the house.
i’m such a short little thing,
i can’t reach my kitchen cabinets.”
