You wouldn’t think it to look at me but I do go to the gym on average about three times a week. Two of those times Im doing a Spin class. Now I usually spend 45 minutes struggling my way through to the end but this time I noticed how much my focus changed when I closed my eyes. You see, when I’m cycling and everyone is in plain site, Im doing one of two things, trying to compete or slowing down when I see someone else struggling. Neither of these methods has done me any good in the past. When I closed my eyes I was able to focus on me, I was competing against my self, cycling my own race. When I stopped focusing on others, I became the benchmark. I reached in to myself to find the strength to keep going. Now, the class was still painful and I still struggled to keep going all the time but I’m sure that my today was better than my yesterday because I wasn’t distracted by what was going on around me. Something to think about….
