Co-worker was embarrassed when I saw him working out.

Friday, February 07, 2020

Last night in work as I was doing my 15 min. walk, a co-workers jogging in the locker room saw that I spotted him and hid behind a locker. I chuckled to myself and kept walking. Later that night I asked him if it was him that I had seen working out. He said yes and was quite embarrassed. I then told him that I myself do my aerobic exercise in the locker room on my break. I explained that it was great that he was finding the time to stay in shape. We work a lot of hours and the only time we can find the time to get in our workouts are at break time. I suggested that when I get up to his speed ( at this time I can only jog for about 1 min) and the weather is better, maybe we could jog together. He said that was a great idea. I'm trying to get into better shape so that I might be able to start a walking break with others in work.
