Without going into too much detail here, out of respect for all involved, I have chosen to stop working out at my current box. Basically due to a chain of events that occurred (that had nothing to do with me…) It is in my best interest to do this, although it’s going to suck big time to leave behind a community of people I have come to love and think of as a second family! Hopefully we’ll still be able to remain friends, and as time goes on, I’ll feel more comfortable posting the details here.
I’m a little nervous about the future of my workouts, although I plan to still work out with my favorite trainer and friend, Erin M. I just don’t know when or where as of yet. We’ll be meeting tomorrow to come up with a game plan, so hopefully I’ll feel more settled after that. I’ve toyed with the idea of checking out other local Crossfit gyms, but I want to see where things go with Erin first. I want to make sure this is something I can do with her outside of a regular crossfit box.
Aside from that, I decided today would be a great day to go back to the Y for spinning!! Bad idea.. Diana wasn’t teaching today (1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays, and Tues/Thurs only). Well, I went in with an open mind, but the girl who was there today looked like she had never taught a spin class ever in her life. (She looked nervous and terrified and intimidated by everyone who was there..) She was fumbling with equipment, the microphone, her ipod.. she had the music turned way down low, and had U2 playing for the warm up. She didn’t even do a regular warm up, and then she moved right into her ‘routine’. She played 3 AC/DC songs in a row, and on the 2nd one, I said to myself, “if the 3rd song is AC/DC, I’m leaving, because this shit’s terrible.” Sure enough, AC/DC again.. so I unclipped and left. I felt so badly for her, I really did! But, I just wanted to be like, here.. please plug my phone in and play my music.. and move over and let me teach this damn class. But, yeah I didn’t do that. Maybe I should have.
We’ll try again with spinning on Tuesday.. and I’ll be there extra early to make sure I get a bike for Diana’s class! 🙂
In the meantime, I’m looking forward to my one on one with Erin. Will be interesting to see how we work out at the house. 🙂
