Subject:I ran
Time:12:14 am
My plan was to do the usual 5-(3)-5-(3)-5 run tonight, but it didn't quite work out that way.

There I was, trotting along during the first run and, bizarrely enough, paying attention to the incredibly stupid TV show that was on in front of me. (You don't want to know. Really.) I looked down to see how much time I had left, and discovered that I'd already run for six minutes.

Hrmm. OK. I guess it's an 8-(5)-8 day. The first 8 was easy, the second was a bit harder. Still, It seems that I've recovered from the attempted drowning of my lungs. I'm not getting any real dizziness.

At the risk of sounding catty, it's always puzzled me that the desk clerk at the gym is not much taller than me and outweighs me by at least a hundred pounds. That's not exactly great advertising.

Depends. How much can s/he bench press?

I'd start by asking how far he can walk. Based on the few times I've seen him move around the club, my guess is not very far.

To expand on this:

(a) Even if he *is* fit and healthy, most customers will not perceive him to be so.
(b) Getting up from the desk seems to be a bit of a chore for him. I suppose it's theoretically possible that he ascribes to HAES, but I'd bet big chunks of money against it.

One of my problems with HAES, incidentally, is that many of the people who preach it don't seem to actually follow it. I've seen quite a few people point to it as a defense of their weight, while at the same time not following the basic principles. "See! I can be healthy at any size. Honey, while you're up will you get me some cheetos please?"

I guess either "Jersey Shore" or "Tool Academy".
