Last week I told my friend that I would take his spin class today at 11:00am. Sometimes I say things out loud so people will hold me accountable and in this case, it was exactly why I said it. It's been over 3 years since I've taken a spin class and I was incredibly anxious and nervous this morning. For those who have never taken one of these classes, this might be why, huh???
Needless to say, I'm still alive...although, I did have some moments of doubt. I looked at the clock every 2 minutes for the first 10, but was able to adjust my focus and then the class really became about me. I was focused on what muscles were working, what my breathing rhythm was, where the pain was and worked on pushing through it. It's not like I was going to die!!! It was 45 minutes of uncomfortable, but good pain and by the time it was over, I was ready for another class.
