Stinking Woman at Cardinal Fitness - 3.0 Miles
Why the old lady perfume picture on the left? Ladies, if you go to a gym, don't wear perfume. Such was not the decision of a woman who came in to walk a mile. I had to change treadmills because the stink was so awful.
The staff at Cardinal were no help. I asked if they could quietly put up a sign, Rather than sympathize, she rejected my comment to tell me she'd rather BO over perfume. I'm guessing she isn't a runner, and hopefully, not working any time I am there.
So I'm torqued. Cardinal is a great place to workout. This lady does not typify the great staff there. Maybe I'll post something on their Facebook page.
I ran just three miles. My layoff, both before, and most recently, is due to some medication I'm on which causes, among other things, lethargy and insomnia. I'm running on maybe five hours a night, and not all of those are good. Running has not been a priority, nor an option.
I've lost significant fitness. My cardio-vascular system is not happy. My pulse was at least as high as 200 when I ran quicker for 0.15 miles. By quicker, I just mean 7:03/mile pace.
Today was the first official day returning to the track with the Jim Spivey Running Club. Obviously, I wasn't there.
