Up and at ’em.
Today was a day to refind some mojo as I can’t seem to muster much up while being sidelined from running. In order to do so I dragged my butt out of bed at 4:30 AM in order to head to the YMCA for the 5:15 spin class. I have to say that the instructor almost knocked me off my spin bike when she started yelling and woo hooing right out of the gate. I mean for goodness sakes, it’s 5:15 AM. I could barely keep my eyes open let alone must the strength for a woo hoo. But I quickly forgave her as we warmed up to some fantastic music and I too found a groove. I have to say, that 45 minute spin class felt good. Sweating is good and I miss it.
I went from there to the pool, to brick. Well, sorta brick any way. The pool was crowded at 6:00 AM, so I had to wait a few minutes in the hot tub for a lane to open up. Yes, I know I could have circle swum, but I hate it. So I refuse. I waited. And then submerged myself into the icy cold water. I managed to eek out a 30 minute swim. However, there was an interesting conversation half way through. We were discussing drafting, swimming in the other person’s wake, etc. I pointed out that I wasn’t able to keep up as I’m just not fast. And we came to the conclusion that maybe I’m not that bad of a swimmer if I could just calm down and swim.
I’ll have to keep this in mind for future swim. Just stop freaking out! All in all it was a good start to the day and nice to see my mojo. Do you freak out in the pool? On your spin bike at 5 in the morning? What gets you going?
