You know, I hate when I see some fat guy speed walking down the sidewalk. I know he’s not REALLY doing himself that much good. I know he has convinced himself, however, that he is “working out” and “making headway.”
But walking is not a work out.
And if all he CAN do is walk, then by god, he needs to make “able to run” his immediate priority in his workout goals, and get there.
I hate it. I’ll say something about how these women where I work out are on the treadmills at 3 mph, reading a book. And I’ll say “They aren’t really doing themselves any good”
And someone will say “At least they aren’t sitting at home slacking on the couch…”
And I can’t agree with the statement. They are in the way. They are not getting a workout in, not at all. They obviously don’t even want to be there - they are reading a fucking book TRYING to be elsewhere.
Why do we care if they are at home on the couch. If people are in the gym, not working out, taking up space - I say LET them stay home and slack and eat.
I much prefer THAT to the option of having them at the gym when they obviously don’t want to be there and won’t be getting any results.
Why do people think that way “At least he’s not at home on his couch…” Man. I say let him BE at home on HIS couch
- not READING SCI FI on my elliptical runner.
