In a renewed attempt to keep my heart from attacking me, I went back to the high school track a couple of days ago. I have been neglecting my exercise routine for an extended period of time after I came up with several Emergency Excuses. They are classified as Emergency Excuses because, if I had not come up with these Emergency Excuses, my heart might have attacked me.
I got right back into my 2 Mile Regimen expecting to be greeted by ESPN and interviewed by one of their glib reporters but ESPN was nowhere to be found. It was just me and a very Interesting and Determined Exercising Lady.
The Exercising Lady was very determined because she did many different forms of exercise and she was there the whole time I was there. She was also interesting because she talked on her cell phone the entire time I was there.
She was already talking on her phone when I arrived and she was talking on her phone when I crawled back to my car 50 minutes later.
I found myself fixated on her more than my usual fixation about whether I was going to be able to finish my two-mile trek around the track. Actually, she took my mind off of my usual line of exercising thought...
Instead, I thought thoughts such as these...
It was almost more exhausting thinking about her Phone Stamina than it was for me to do my two miles.
The Real Depressing Part...
The Save My Aging Dignity Part...
Before she did actually catch up and pass me, she stopped doing her Brisk Walking Routine and started doing In-Place Stretching and Jumping Exercises.
If she had persisted with her Brisk Walking Routine and had passed me while I was doing my Brisk Walking and Running Routine, my ego might never have recovered.
As I peck this Foolishness out, I am left grasping at the straw that maybe I was on the verge of getting my Second Wind and she may not have passed me after all...Or would she not have after all?
Would I kid u?
