One man in particular, albeit a senior citizen, enjoys riding the recumbent bike while working his daily crossword puzzle. Meanwhile, as I sweat profusely behind him, seething, wondering how is he even working up a sweat? It takes all I have just to work out and fiddle with my playlist and grab an occasional drink of water.
Is it just me? What's the deal with these people? It's not against gym policy by any means, but it is certainly something that has gotten under my skin a bit. I mean, why don't we get you a blanket and a pillow and some hot cocoa while we're at it?
If you happen to be one of these reading/crossword puzzle working workout gems, feel free to set me straight. I would love to understand how it's possible to concentrate or read any articles with ease, or write while doing cardio... I'm not closed minded.
While you're at it, take all of the loud conversations to the locker room too. That is, unless you can figure out what "Inside Voice" means.
End of rant... I guess.
