I have officially decided on my first race for 2012. This will force me to train through the bitter cold months. ( fingers crossed for a mild winter ) April 1st- The Fools 50K ( but I will be doing the 25k ) This should be a good stepping stone for my ultimate goal of doing a 5oK. I will commence my official training January 2nd. So mark your calendars…because I know you will all be waiting with bated breath for my training updates.
Tonight…was Spinning class # 3 . I won’t play tough….it kicked my ass. Wobbly legs with close calls of them giving out, mixed with urges of vomiting on myself, made it awesome ! ..GREAT times ! But damn if I don’t feel awesome when all is said and done. Super Spinning Instructor Rita keeps me coming back. Well….her and the close calls of vomiting…because who can deny that type of excitement?!
Rita’s loud motivations into the microphone keep me pedaling. Not always fast and hard…but always moving.
” COMMIT TO THIS !!!…..COMMIT TO YOURSELF!! ”
” PUSH YOURSELF….YOU CAN MAKE YOURSELF STRONGER! ”
” IF YOU WANT SOMETHING…IF YOU WANT THIS….WORK IT !! ”
And so far I’m enjoying her playlists. Though not a big fan of her warm-up song tonight. “Red Solo Cup” . Really ?!?!
The moment that got me going tonight? Rita yells ……. ” DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE ???? ” And on it comes….
Music…motivation for the soul. Jules asked about songs and playlists. Well… I truly love everything. Love acoustic stuff …hip hop, country, even the romantic sap. Love it all ! So let’s share….shall we.. ?
