Ever have one of those days where you have an appointment after work that you're totally dreading? I have one of those every Monday. Monday night is Step class night at the gym. And I HATE Step class. And yet, I keep going every week. Mostly because I know that I need the cardio workout, and because I have two friends to go with.
Tonight? Not so much. S is still on her way back from Queensland, and R conveniently found a giant hole in her gym pants and went home. Leaving me to do Step by myself. I contemplated leaving, but I figured I was already AT the gym, so I may as well hang around, despite the fact that I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally didn't want to do Step by myself.
Class was due to start at 5.30. By 5.35, we were all starting to wonder where the instructor was. By 5.40, someone had caved and phoned reception to ask what the deal was. To which the response was "Ummmmmmmmmm, we don't know?" By 5.45, we all gave up, put our steps away and buggered off.
There's nothing quite like the feeling when the appointment you've been dreading all day gets suddenly cancelled and you get to go home 45 minutes earlier than anticipated........... :D
