I will be the first person to admit that I have a sick fascination with my sweat. The sweatier I am after a workout the better I feel.
Hence, why I feel the need to take sweaty pictures of myself and post them on my blog for ALL the world to see.
The post sweaty workout pictures serve as a reminder of all that I have accomplished. I worked hard for the sweat. Oh yeah! 🙂
So when running didn’t sound like my thang for the sixth day in a row (I can’t believe I haven’t run since last Tuesday either) I opted to take baby steps to get back on the wagon.
I convinced myself that a really good sweat session was enough to get the endorphins going and get me back on track mentally.
So I hit a up spin class last night. It seemed like the best and fastest way to a completely amazing sweaty workout.
I jumped on my bike and just let my legs go crazy.
My favorite part of the ride were the times she told us to stand up and “jog it out”.
When I start to get down on myself for thinking I don’t like running, I find myself longing it for it in the weirdest ways.
I found that spinning has helped soothed my runners soul.
It sort of reenergizes me and gets me excited about running again.
All I can think about when I’m on the spin bike is my feet hitting the open road.
Before I left my spin class I looked down on the ground and saw a small sweat pile. A smile quickly formed over my face.
There is something hardcore about someone who sweats so much that it makes it to the floor. It was no flood like the person’s bike in front of me, but regardless it felt good.
So I’m happy to report that I will be hitting the open tread tonight. Just me and the ‘mill to continue the sweat fest journey I am on.
I know that I don’t actually hate the act of running but sometimes I just need something else to remind me why I love it.
And if spinning is that thing that reminds me why I love running than I’ll take it –the whole sweaty mess and all!
See you tomorrow for another exciting edition of “Wedding Wednesdays!”
