THE BATTLE WITHIN

SPIN: 55 MIN. / AVE HR=143 / MAX HR= 168

I had quite the battle within myself this morning. It was one argument after another:

* I don't want to get up because it's cold but I have to drive Hooch to the school to catch a 745 bus. So I might as well go to 8am spin class.
* The bus wasn't there on time and it will make me late for spin but I should still just head to the gym.
* I am going to the gym and will pull in right at 8am. I hate to walk in spin late but alot of other people do and it will be a good work out.
* As I'm walking in ,I was thinking that 30min. on the elliptical would be good after my run yesterday.
* I got to a locker and put my HR monitor on. Next thing I know I'm heading up the stairs- my spin shoes on. Unconsciously the decision was made.

It was a good endurance work-out with alot of time in the saddle. It actually turned out fine once I got there.

Waddling to watch the Chicago Bears.....

The best workouts are the ones we resist the hardest. It always works that way.

I don't like to be late for spinning, either, but when it can't be helped, it's better than not going at all. Good job!

At least the Bears won. I won't even mention the Lions.

Hey, way to overcome procrastination! If only I could silence the little voices in my head that easily.
