A couple weeks ago, I attended my regular spin class – a workout I always look forward to for its high intensity. Every time, I leave feeling accomplished and ready for the day after a solid heart-pounding 45 minutes of power climbs, intervals, and more. After that class, though? I felt “meh” as I finished up my workout. I sat there thinking about how it didn’t feel as intense as normal. Then it hit me.
It was all on me. I had checked out during the workout. I got lost in my thoughts and didn’t focus my efforts on my workout. The end result? Not the workout I had anticipated or hoped to achieve.
Why am I telling you all of this? To remind you that your workout is up to YOU!
No one else can push themselves. You have to focus and make every minute and every rep count. Your workout is your time, so make that time worthwhile and get the most out of it.
I know you can. Don’t check out of your workout. Happy Training!
Have you ever “checked out” of a workout? What distracts you? What can keep you more focused?
