RUDE?????

Phoned my friend last night and apologised profusely for the attitude yesterday... she was fabulous and said she was happy that I was close enough to her to be able to vent at her, still I felt better for apologising as I am not normally a out loud sort of person..

I stew, I stress, I internalise every thought and emotion and pull it apart, put it back together and then dismantle it again to check that I am feeling what I am feeling... Hubby knows very well that when I get quiet you back slowly away smiling and nodding and then run as fast as you can...

This morning I went to the gym to train Hammies, Abs and then do the morning cardio thing... I was there to train, I just wanted to train, I didn't want to chat, smile, nod, acknowledge, greet, interact..... I wanted to train.

So why do I feel like I have to explain this to someone who is also there to train and who is now under the impression that I am in a bad mood and having a bad day because I didn't have the time or inclination to chat this morning.

I wasn't rude, I just didn't stop mid set to talk..... I have to fit a certain number of exercises, sets, body parts and cardio into a 1 hour and 15min time slot so the rest of my day isn't a huge running late panic... How hard is that to understand...

I really do need a singlet that says.....

I don't want to hear your shit.. I just want to train...

If I didn't have it in capital letters would that still be considered rude????

I just don't talk when I train, I have been fitting the chatting in lately to be nice and polite but really I just can't handle it... How do you count to 20 when someone is telling you about their life... Sorry but I really do need that singlet...

CAth, if you're rude, then I'm the devil incarnate :)
