Spin Till You Win!
No, I'm not talking about a slot machine for all of you gamblers out there. (Though I've been known to play that one on rare occasion...) I'm talking Spinning class!
Many of you know how much I love spinning. My budget only allows me to take a class once a week, maybe with an extra Friday class here or there - but I look forward to it each and every time. And lately I love it even more.
Why? Because I'm getting stronger and pushing myself harder...not only at the studio but at home with step and kettlebell workouts, Pilates, and Zumba. All of the cross-training I do makes me better on the bike.
Last night I had my best spin EVER. I could do a lot more work out of the saddle, while still pushing myself in the saddle and making attempts at some of the moves I didn't think I was strong enough to do in the past. I discovered I could do it...and I DID!
I'll let you in on a little secret...before every spin class I say a prayer, asking God to help me have a great spin and do more than I did the last time. Believe me, it works. When you realize that you can do anything through His strength, it's empowering. And the momentum only builds from there.
So I encourage you to give spinning a try...just remember to pray for that extra "push" from above!
