I did not roll over and go back to sleep when my alarm went off in the 4:30a.m. range. While I do need to tweak my timing for being up and out the door, I was so pleased with myself that I was up and out and riding the bike by 5:15-ish. Woot!
I thought about how I had been going to the gym previously and sans trainer, was babying myself with low level workouts. I cranked the level up to 11, and set it for 30 mins. I was so surprised that even the first few revolutions of the pedals seemed hard to turn, but I kept going. :)
About 10 mins in, I was starting to weaken and I dropped the level to a more reasonable 8. This was still head and shoulders above my previous workouts where I was moving at level 1 or level 3 if I really went crazy. :)
No more Mrs. Nice Guy. I know I really need to push myself to keep working out, and keeping myself on a consistent path. This morning, I visualized I was in my old gym in Boston, where I had so much success. I put myself there in my minds eye. I know I can ride myself out of my rut, where I'd spending too much time.
I'm feeling pretty good this morning, and I want to just keep myself rolling.
