Monday Morning Blues

When I walked into spin class this morning at 5:45 a.m., there was only one bike taken. And it was MY bike. The one I always use. The one I can set up with my eyes closed. The one I know the tension of by heart. The one next to my "spin buddy" whose first name I don't even know. Taken. The nerve. I tried to be the bigger person, to not let it bother me. I mean, my bike doesn't have my name on it anywhere. So I took the bike behind my bike and tried to enjoy the class. But it didn't stop me from shooting dirty looks at the bike thief's back all during class. Can something like that ruin my day? Well, it certainly didn't MAKE it.

And the worst part? She didn't even work hard enough to sweat.

Hmm.

If you wake up early enough to go to a class at 5:45, you deserve the bike you want! Sorry about the bad luck, but I hope your day got better after that :)

WOW...you are a good girl getting up so early. I need to to something like that...today we were in Hershey, PA so guess what I have been eating?

I too got up for spin class at 5:45...but there were NO bikes! Can you believe it! They must not have received the message...I am back! In your case, you could make a stellar name tag with a nice ribbon to hang it! I don't think anyone would mind....do you?!!

I get up early to work out also, we can be a very grouchy bunch- us morning risers!

This cracks me up. I would so be the same way (If I actually worked out). Hope you had a better day! ;)

I'm funny about that kind of stuff too. Once I have something set that I like, I want it the same way every time. That's really annoying she took your bike. You're so awesome to get up that early to go work out! I wish I had more motivation to do that. I'll settle for my nightly bike rides with Russ and Tucks. I'm more a night person :)

5:45?!! You are amazing! I hope you get your bike next time :-)

i think you need to get there earlier...I know, you're probably thinking "I'm already there at 5:45." :)

Spit wads work when someone's on my treadclimber... I'm just saying...
Oh, and at least you can ride a bike without falling over. The ONE time I tried a spin class I fell off my bike. Everyone thought I was drunk.

(And don't tell Benjamin that his Mommy can't ride a bike. Trying to be the "cool mom." )
