Damn It! Workout Not Even Halfway Over
THE GYM — After deliberately trying to avoid looking at the display on the elliptical machine, Patricia Westerberg’s momentary glimpse at the digital counter revealed that her 30 minute workout was not even halfway over. “Damn it,” Westerberg said, wiping sweat from her brow. “I was trying to do the whole ‘delayed gratification’ thing by not looking at that clock, but I couldn’t help myself. I thought I would be near the end, but I’m not even close!” After gasping for air for several moments, the woman added: “Shit!” Westerberg then looked at the clock every 30 seconds or so until she terminated the workout with prejudice nearly two and a half minutes later.
