It happens all the time – newspapers post corrections to stories that contained an error in a previous edition. Granted, it’s usually in very small print on the back page, in the bottom left-hand corner where no one ever looks. I’ll be (wo)man enough to call out my error in broad daylight.
I was at the gym again, and decided that because of the higher reps in today’s workout, I could use the 24-pound Power Blocks in the women’s fitness area. I reserve myself a bench, grab the Power Blocks, and start my front squats. Around the 5th rep, something new about two feet to the left of the dumbell rack catches my eye.
What is that I see? Another set of Power Blocks?
Oh it is, isn’t it? I finish my set, walk over to them, and discover that my hunch is correct – they’re 60-pound Power Blocks.
Oooh, I feel so sheepish.
Alas, I stand corrected and hereby rescind the remarks I made on my last post. So I didn’t notice those nifty new Power Blocks yesterday. I must have been too engrossed in the dramatic episode I concocted in my head to even notice.
<Insert unnamed health club here>, as well as that nice, young trainer behind the fitness desk, deserve my heartfelt apologies. They haven’t turned their backs on their duty to enable women to lift heavier weights.
Brownie points have officially been earned back.
