Weird Gym Rituals

•27 October 2014 • 2 Comments

I suspect everyone has their weird gym rituals, but I think my gym is super special..

So far I have seen:

  • Someone who looks in the mirror multiple times to check their socks are level before going to work out
  • Someone who sprays themselves with deodorant before going to work out
  • The person who gets a little too into their tunes and starts waving their arms into the air (thumb & little finger Ozzy Osbourne Style!)
  • Someone running on the treadmill in their socks
  • Someone who complained about not liking the rowing machine because it makes them sweat!! In a GYM!!
  • A man on the bike in jeans
  • People in the gym in woolly hats (what’s with that?)
  • I see plenty people finish their set and get changed spray on a little deodorant and then go on with their day, but that’s less ritual and more nasty.

My odd rituals are:

  • I only go on even machines, which is weird because it depends on where you start counting from, if you count from the other end, I only go on odd machines.
  • I get in the shower in my pants, only because most of my workout is cardio and I sweat A LOT and I try and wash some of the sweat out before they go into my bag (otherwise they are like cardboard after a couple weeks!!)
  • I tend to be quite noisy on the rower, I can imagine it could be quite annoying to other people, but I do give 100% which means some growling..

So what about you what odd rituals are at your gym?

Flashback Friday #00147 – John Holt

•24 October 2014 • Leave a Comment

Unfortunately was little too young to really appreciate John Holt when he was in his prime even though his music was played when I was knee high to a grass hopper in our house. However as I grew up and went to the old timers parties I got to listen to more and more of his music and appreciated him a whole lot more..

He died this week, but his music will always be timeless…

There are A LOT of hits but I am going to bring you the big ones you may have heard before…

What kind of sports parent are you?

•20 October 2014 • 2 Comments

Having gone to my first football match as a substitute father a couple weekends ago I saw quite a few different flavour parents.
They were under 9’s so they play a few rules that you may not be aware of:

  • During goal kicks the opposition team has to be in their own half
  • No offsides
  • No bookings

So from what I can tell here are the different flavour parents I saw:

The complainers:
These are the ones that complain about everything the other team do, but say nothing when their own team does it. The “rules” are very lose in this football as these boys are not always aware of the limits, so there are a lot of high foot and pushing going on but unless it’s major the ref tends to let it slide.

The over competitive ones:
These are the super complainers, they don’t just complain to the people on the touchline. But they complain to the ref, get as close as they can to the pitch, and sometimes even tell other peoples kids off!!!

The aggressive ones:
These are the ones who yell at their children in that disappointed or aggressive tone. I don’t want you to lose the ball! I don’t want you to turn your back. I don’t want that player to beat you to the ball.

The encourager’s:
These are the ones that spend the game saying well done, these people tend to encourage everyone not only just their own child.

The advisers:
These are the ones that want to do the managers job, telling players to move, pass, run, mark..

Clearly the encourager’s are the ideal parent, but I can understand how frustration can creep in if you feel that the referee is being inconsistent or unfair. Or if you think the manager is ignoring parts of the pitch or needs help.

What kind of sports parent are you?

Are there anymore types that I didn’t see that day?

Commendations for Ending a Relationship

•13 October 2014 • Leave a Comment

Breakup

I have recently become single, it was a hard decision but it was my choice.
When I told people this, most of the females said “Aww I’m sorry
However most of the males said “Well done” and one actually said “congratulations“!!

After a conversation with one of these males, I found out that most men wouldn’t end a relationship if they weren’t happy.

I’m still trying to understand what that means:

  • Would a geeza treat a girl like rubbish until she leaves him?
  • Would he just do nothing a be miserable?
  • What other choices does he have?

Are there loads of people out there stuck in relationships they don’t want to be in?

I know I’m not built like everyone else, but surely if you don’t see a future with them then aren’t you better off alone than with someone who you know you aren’t going to make it with?

I know it’s not always black and white like that, and being ruled by head gives me the advantage of not letting emotions cloud my choices.

I know being married or having children makes the decision even harder.

The way I see it is you either say something and try and fix what is wrong or your get out.
You don’t really have many more options after that do you?

Am I over simplifying it?
