I wasn't happy to find out that the speakers connected to the radio and CD player in the gym were not working. Looks like I'm going to have to find a cheap boom box to place in there. I fiddled around with the speakers (both the radio and CD components appeared to be working) but there was no sound. I thought I was the only one who touches the radio down there, but who knows? All I know that the speakers were fine the other day.
Only one kid showed up, a seven year old girl. She told me that another girl who had been in the gym previously, like she had, was going to be late. However, the other girl never showed up. The seven year old was disinterested in being there initially, but eventually she warmed up to it. We spent most of the time going over uppercuts, left jabs, and straight rights.
I didn't get my own workout in, even though no teenagers showed up for the second class. Nor did I work on the lesson plan that the field house manager needs me to turn in to him in a few days. I have most of it done, but I feel like I'm missing some things.
Instead, I was distracted by the smell of food from a group that had rented out the auditorium. They were generous enough to allow me and another co-worker to get plates of food. It was a typical soul food meal. I skipped the greens, but got a double helping of the dressing, which was delicious. I hadn't eaten much of a breakfast, so I was starved. But I figured maybe I'll have a light dinner to make up for overdoing it.
