Just keep swimming…

Yesterday was an exceptionally crappy day. I was very glad I did some yoga first thing in the morning, because last night the only plan I wanted to follow was getting together with some good friends and enjoying a bottle of wine. (I also briefly contemplated just going to bed immediately after work and shutting the world out, but am glad I went with the more social plan.)

When things start to suck, you don’t have to like pursuing your goals – but you do have to keep pursuing them. This morning, I had signed up for the 6am Flywheel class with those same friends – if they could get up and do it, I could get up and do it. Case closed.

It’s day 10 of my January “work out every day” challenge, and I am still on track. So there’s that.


  1. Thatagirl! We all have days like that but you always find a way to make lemonade out those proverbial lemons! Great job on the early rising to fit in your workout! :)

  2. Pretty glad that you came out to flywheel- classes aren’t the same without you!!!

  3. Hope your week gets better :-) Almost the wknd baby!

  4. When I’m in a long race, I’ll think of Finding Nemo’s Dory singing that in my head. The light-hearted voice makes the fatigue melt away.

  5. Thank you all for the support :) Things are looking up, thanks to amazing friends!

  6. You are so right. Sometimes you just have to stop thinking, and just dó when your mind’s not looking.

  7. That’s exactly it. It reminds me of when, in Flywheel, they tell you “Now add 5 to the resistance. Don’t think about it; just do it!” Thinking about it can be our worst enemy!
