Challenges came at me from the moment my feet hit the floor. I went to grab my morning Diet Mountain Dew and make some toast when I realized it was warm inside the refrigerator. At 5am there are not many options. Luckily it is winter so I grabbed a laundry basket took everything out of the frig and set it in the garage.

At 545, I was out the door and on the treadmill by 6am. I had a good run going when a guy jumped on the treadmill next to me. Decided to play the drums on the treadmill control board and scare the crap out of me because he was banging so hard. I did a good 4 mile run completed.

The locker room became the next stop. After my shower, I was getting ready for work and this lady decided to start a conversation. She was nice but bare naked. She proceeded to tell me of her sciatic pain and show me where it hurt across her butt. I couldn't get out of there fast enough.

The trip to work was uneventful. Once there I reached in my pants pocket. To my surprise, I realized that they were on backwards. How embarrassing. In my hurry to leave the gym, I put on my pants the wrong way.

This all happened before 8am. The rest of the day was much of the same.

Waddling to an easier day.............

Run : 4 miles / teadmill/ 53:00

I'm sorry but that made me laugh. Naked people asking for a diagnosis and backward pants - OMG!

Oye that is one way to start the day! Yes...i hate it in the locker room when a naked person decided they *need* to have a conversation with you. Puuuleeze put some clothes on first.

ewwww on the naked person. I love when they try to talk to me while they are naked with one foot up on the bench. Grosses me out just thinking about it. Sorry about your crappy day, but your email made me smile. Especially your pants on backwards. :-) Sorry!!

Funny stuff! I would have told mr. drummer man to stop. Hope you had an ipod should have started singing really loud! :-)

Glad you could laugh...sorry, but this sure got me laughing. A sense of humor is necessary on a day like this.

And be glad for a treadmill in this weather!!!!

I've left the gym with a shirt on backwards. That makes even less sense, since you'd think I might notice if I took even a passing glace at the mirror...but NO...I did NOT notice. *blush*

Well, it was an "entertaining" morning??
Best wishes for an interlude of "ordinary".
