Karma. You DO work fast.

6am spin class.

Row of 3 chaps in front of me. One in front with expensive padded cycling shorts patterned with brand names and slogans, the next one in a cycling shirt with a pocket at the back for snacks. For his 45 minute spin class. And the one at the end. The one wearing cycling gloves. Obviously to protect his hands in case of a high speed crash. On his stationary bike.

Look at that line of plonkers.

I sat there all smug. Doing my spin class. Until near the end when I caught sight of something white in my reflection in the full length mirror opposite.

What WAS that?

Looked a bit closer. It was my label. The label on the OUTSIDE of my top. Which should have been on the inside. And when I looked at myself a bit closer I realised I could also see the label on the outside of my shorts. Which should have been on the inside of my shorts.

Yep.

Having got dressed in the dark that morning and being so busy laughing at the three chaps in front of me that I’d completely failed to notice that ALL of my kit was inside out.

Karma. You DO work fast.

  1. Oh dear!
    Most embarrassing moment for me, was wearing a new pair of pale grey leggings to a spin class, winch turned dark grey with sweat. By the end of the class I looked like I'd wet myself!

  2. I'm so sorry but I did laugh at that. I have returned home from a run on more than one occasion and discovered I'd been wearing my top inside out. Of course it was always on days I'd stopped and chatted to people. Sigh. Maybe it made them feel better about themselves!

    1. Yes! Why do people never mention this?? I like to tell myself maybe they haven't noticed .... but I'm not convinced! :)

  3. Haha! This did make me smile. Especially that both your top and bottom half were inside out!
    Last Summer I wore a new running top inside out two weeks in a row. That was bad enough, especially when the same person pointed it out both times! :P
