- I’m sick today. I’m not sure if it’s a stomach bug, too much heat or just an after effect of pilates!
- I’ve lost my keys. This is bad! It’s not just a case of being another set cut. I have the key to the cafe downstairs and it’s a security key so, if I cán’t find it soon, the lock needs to be replaced and a whole set of keys cut!
Hygiene and other issues:
The past week or two, I’ve been going to the gym at lunch time. I figure it’s a good way to get in those classes I feel I should do but don’t. Stuff like pilates.
My gym offers a few 30 or 45 minute lunchtime classes. I don’t like taking too long for lunch and even the 45 minutes (with getting there time) are cutting it fine.
If I do pilates, I feel fine with not showering after class. I’m not doing big movements and don’t get very sweaty. If I’m doing something more cardio-fied, like running, then I always shower.
The other day, I did a powerplate class though. It was strength training (on one of those new fangled vibrating plates). I got a little sweaty; it’s more of a workout than pilates. That’s getting into the grey area of needing to shower.
Showering – it’s time consuming. I need to do other stuff in my lunch hour. Also, I figured I would have been as sweating running around the shops or something on a warm day.
Also, if I do a cardio class at lunch time, sometimes I don’t shower before work. I kinda don’t see the need for a shower if I’m going to have one a few hours later. I do try to avoid cardio at lunch time just because I really do hate showering then. And I hate having to redo my makeup and hair. I even hate having to lug my makeup with me.
What do you think? What’s your “showering point” so to speak? Am I a preternaturally slow showerer because it seems to add on at least 30 minutes to my changing time.
