The Golden Hour

Posted on

On Friday, Katy Perry kicked my ass.

Rather, a 15-minute long mega mix of all of her songs during a spinning class combined with a challenging routine, motivating instructor, and planets aligning with my body to push it. Hard.

Note to self–quad stretches in cycling shoes requires more balance than I am able to muster at the end of a Katy Perry Kill Shot)
I love it when my workout coincides with my body feeling optimally rested, hydrated, and fed. I have discovered that this happens for me at approximately 730 – 800 am. During summer, this is ideal–wake up with the husband at 5, eat a little something, work or clean, walk the puppy, and hit the gym around that time. I am able to push it to my absolute limit, and then spend the rest of the day reveling in that slightly shaky, tired feeling that comes from knowing I kicked some ass. If I’m lucky, I cane even snuggle in a nap.

Only 2 more weeks of this indulgence–then it’s back to the bleary-eyed early morning gym time.


About spinrunsew

I’m a spinning enthusiast, once-a-year half marathoner, and I can sew damn near anything. The rest is filled with the husband, the puppy, the chickens, and one massive garden.

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
