Total fail. Her 5:30p class is so popular that you typically have to be there 15-20 min ahead of time to get a wristband. I got there at 5:05p today, walked inside in a hurry, they scanned my thing, I asked for a wristband and the guy at the counter was like, “They’re all out. There are no more left..” as if I should have known. I WAS 25 MINUTES EARLY!!! Jesus Christ.
So.. I went to walk out and then I was like, no.. go the hell upstairs and maybe some ass will have taken a band and then decide not to go. Smart! Right? Yeah, then so were the 3 other people without wristbands upstairs waiting with the 30 who got them.. I stood there for 5 min thinking about it. There is never an empty bike in Diana’s class, and today just wasn’t my day.
Was it a sign? Maybe. I’m annoyed that I didn’t get to spin today, but I was also a little relieved because I was feeling light headed and sort of dizzy all day. A bit lethargic, even though I got plenty of sleep. I even had an extra cup of coffee this morning along with a delicious omelet. Marisa says I didn’t eat enough, okay fine, maybe, so I had a Clif bar later in the afternoon. Still felt the same. Still got my shit together and went to the gym. No workout. 🙁
I would’ve stayed at the Y but I only had my spinning shoes (clip ins) and my birkenstocks. Neither are workout friendly and at that point, I was a bit discouraged. Once I have my mind made up to do something, I either do it, or I leave sorely disappointed that I didn’t get to do it. You may be able to relate to this in a planned event sort of way, I know I can. Like the following scenario:
Other person: “Hey!! Who wants to get ice cream after we leave here?”
Me: “Oh hell yes!! I am totally down. If everyone else is eating YogaBerry then I sure as shit can too.. When are we going!?!? Let’s go NOW!!” (gathering my things and waiting at the door…)
Other people; 20 min later: “Eh… I don’t really need yogurt, I’m kinda full from dinner still..” “Yeah, it’s cool, we can skip it..”
Me: “WTFFFFFFF noo we had PLANS to get frozen yogurt!! You can’t bail on that!! Noo!! I stopped eating my dinner because I thought we were doing this!! I will never get another chance to go again! YOU DONT UNDERSTAND HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS TO MEEEE!”
Everyone else: “Whatever, it’s just yogaberry, no big deal, we can just go another time..”
Me: “Noooooooooooo!!!!!!! (panicking.. cause now wtf am I gonna do.. I made life plans to do this!!) Nooo…. (ending in a whimper.. and then pouting.) 🙁
Everyone else: “err….”
So yes.. I actually have the same sort of reaction to not getting to spin when I had plans to spin as the above YogaBerry scenario. It’s gut wrenching and leaves me in a panicked WTF do I do now state of mind. (not really, I get over it.. I didn’t really need frozen yogurt, but damn it, it sounded good!) But spinning.. I walked in with the mentality that that’s what I was going to do tonight! Spinning fail.
I drove back to the office, defeated, stuck in traffic, pissed because I could’ve been spinning but all these other assholes (who, prior to today, were my bestest closest spin buddies, but not today..) got there before me and snagged all the wristbands. Oh well.
There WILL be Crossfit tomorrow at 11a. There will be NO wristbands, and I won’t leave til I finish my damn workout. Looking forward to it!
