My gym routine always starts with a good five minutes of foam rolling. It is the cheap mans massage, it does a great job getting my muscles ready for whatever exercise I'm about to do. I always listen to The Killers while stretching and again have no clue what is going on around me. Yesterday after rolling my calves I saw Easy Ed sitting on the ground, I quickly scooped him up and hoped that no one had noticed. For whatever reason I still get nervous that someone will see it, I don't mean to hide it, it just happens. I finished up by rolling my back and then headed off to the elliptical for forty minutes of pain.
Ten minutes in to my workout I noticed this guy standing near me, I instantly got upset thinking "I just got here I have another thirty minutes, go use another machine" I then looked over and the guy is holding Easy Ed, I removed one of my ear buds and was asked "Did you drop this?" I politely said "I did, thank you" As he handed it to me I noticed that he was looking at me thinking "How are you listening to music, I have your Ipod" I quickly put Easy Ed in my pocket and continued my workout, the whole time thinking I need to talk to the guy that found Easy Ed and thank him and explain what it is. Unfortunately the gentleman left the gym before I was done on the elliptical. I will be paying a little more attention when I'm at the gym now.
