Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

Well, let's see. I haven't done a spin class in over 2 years. Within 5 minutes, I was hoping for survival. Fifteen minutes in I looked down and noticed the small sign on the bike that says "if you feel faint, stop immediately". I'm thinking they put that there for people like me. Thirty  minutes in I'm weighing my options. Which would be the least embarrassing - puking or collapsing and falling off the bike? I glance around and people are smiling. Really? Smiling? Are they delusional? Forty-five minutes in - just don't cry. Whatever you do- you cannot cry. I don't care how bad your 'sitting' bones hurt. Slowly the clocked ticked by to 60 minutes. Whew it was finally over, but now I was faced with the fear of falling when trying to get off the bike as my legs were like jello.

But I was able to stand, even smile and the very next thought was I can't wait to do it again next week!
