Those were my thoughts today with about 10 minutes left in spin class. It was all I could do to pull myself together. The workout was so intense and grueling that I was struggling to breathe. I spent a few seconds considering whether I should go to the bathroom just in case and then thought I should just tough it out. I’m not gonna lie, I did consider the implications of hurling in the poor girl in front of me, but I just knew I would hold it together.

The workout was great, but I didn’t get any stats because I forgot to wear my monitor. That’s probably for the best as I can only imagine that the watch would be exhausted from just trying to keep up with my heart.

I went swimming a bit later in the day. I am feeling much more comfortable with my swimming, but I still have a lot of work to do. The pool I was swimming in was also used by a highschool swim team. There was a board on the wall with swim times for various students. A quick scan of the board revealed that the 9th grade girls were swimming 50 yards only slightly faster than I was swimming 25! 29 seconds to finish 50 yards. I can’t even imagine swimming that fast. Wow do I have a lot to learn.
