Today’s workout was Awesome.
I set a goal and I met it.
I told myself that no matter what — I was going to get to a certain number.
Recently, I’ve been feeling more lethargic during class and falling well below the level I know I can meet.
The burrito I ate before class didn’t help (stupid).
Neither did the lack of sleep last night (stupid).
But. There’s always an excuse to pedal at a lower rpm.
A few things did help.
Friends. Music. Mental game.
I’ve found that the key to cycling consistently every week is getting your friends involved (evil plan). I’ve introduced spinning to a number of friends who now go every week. Knowing they’re reserving bikes pushes me.
The playlist was perfect (Careless Whisper by Seether is new favorite).
I put everything out of my mind. For 45 minutes. Nothing was going on in my life besides Enrique Iglesias (that’s right).
I sang along. I cheered out loud. I passed my goal.
I was pumped.
