Gagging on perfume

Date: 4/20/21
Training Day: 88
Miles: 3.4
Time: 40 min
Shoes: Altra Paradigm 5
Weather: N/A (indoors on a treadmill)
Strength Training: Back & traps

How It Felt: The run felt pretty darn good! Time went by pretty fast, which is always good on the treadmill. Back workout was different than the last three weeks, so that was refreshing.

Commentary: Why do some people douse themselves in cologne or perfume before they go to the gym? And I hate to say this, but in my experience, women do this more than men.

First of all, I have horrible allergies. Colognes and perfumes irritate the shit out of my nose, and some actually make me cough. Second of all, it’s a gym! If you smell that bad, take a shower before the gym. Or change your gym clothes. Or stay home. Or come to the gym smelly. I, personally, would rather smell BO than obnoxious perfume or cologne.

One day I was running on the treadmill when a chick and her cloud of perfume started up on the treadmill next to me. I literally almost gagged. It was a struggle continuing my run.

Today a chick came in and bombed me with overpowering perfume. Thankfully I was done that exercise and was able to move to a different spot.

I know. I’m just bitching. Kind of. It seriously bother my senses and ability to breathe. Maybe I’m the only one? Does strong perfume/cologne bother you? If you’re one of those douse-yourself-with-fragrance people, can you please enlighten me as to why?
