This morning my friend Lori of A Cowboy's Wife and I met in the gym at 6:30 to workout. The gym was packed and we had to wait a few minutes for treadmills but we were able to start our walk/run in about ten minutes. I decided to do some interval training and alternated a minute of walking with a minute of running.
Everything was going pretty well, for the first time I was using my iPhone to listen to tunes while I worked out. I had a strange foreboding feeling that something was going to go awry with the iPhone and of course I was correct. About 5 minutes before I was completing my workout I tried to adjust my phone and suddenly it landed on the treadmill.
In my infinite wisdom I decided to "save the iPhone" and in the process I proceeded to bust my azz. Yes, folks, I felt like I was in that commercial for the 50 Million Pound Challenge when the man falls off of the treadmill. I was down on the ground in seconds. I wasn't hurt so I thought it was hilarious.
We are in a New York Hotel and amazingly not one person stopped their workout to laugh or even see if I was okay. I laughed it off, the gym attendant asked if I was okay and I did get back up off my butt and on that treadmill.
Need a visual? Check this out. I kinda looked like this woman on the treadmill.
