Day 5.126 Opportunity & Experience
Warm up for 20 minutes.
All-out maximum 30 seconds.
Recover for 90 seconds.
Repeat 8 times.
In most civilized cultures, that is enough.
We take an extended ten minute break at 7(gear)/120 (cadence) and then do two more.
Because we can. And because I have the room for an hour. And because the 'typical' spin class is 60 minutes long.
Today I cut the hearty class practitioners a deal. Plea bargained a focused, super 50 minute effort in exchange for an early-out for good behavior. They took it without hesitation, every one.
As we were winding down with he standard cool-off, stretch and start of recovery, an interesting thought popped into my awareness as if part of the routine. It might have been the voice of accomplishment.
I repeated it to the group.
"I don't think there is anything I will do for the remainder of this day that will cause me to feel as alive as I do right now."
For that I am grateful.
For the opportunity and the experience.
