"Oh my God," said the woman, hand over her mouth. She had just come around the corner of the hall and stared at Greg as if his ears were flapping in the breeze. "I don't believe it."

"Er, yes?" said Greg.

"You look just like my ex-boyfriend," she said. "I could have sworn you were him!"

Greg looked around, then finally said, "Oh. Um ... sorry?"

Sunday Workout Report (Smells Like Gold's Gym In Here Edition)

By now many of you have heard that I was defeated at Iron Artist -- alas! By only four points, too. FC has still been much cool funness. I regret nothing, do you hear? Nothing!!!

But enough about that. Let's get on with the workout report. ;)

On Sunday morning in the way-too-early, invisiblewolf, Derrick Dasenbrock, kylet, drleo and I piled into Lanny's rental super-swank-white-Cadillac and we trundled over to a Gold's Gym for workoutage. It was interesting to see how the machines compared to the Bowflex. Some things were much easier, some were much harder, and some were actually worth doing -- such as the extra leg exercises I tacked on just 'cause I could.

Basically, anything involving the chest (particularly the bench presses) were OHMYGODHARD, whereas anything with the lats seemed slightly easier than when using the Bowflex.

Still, it was a neat and fun experience, and I was glad to have some kind of workout. I've never actually had a workout in a public gym before. The closest I'd had before that was the VCU facilities, many long years ago.
