#9: Defying Gravity.
I hit the gym this morning as I kicked off a four day weekend. After shooting hoops with my brother for awhile, I hopped on a bike to log some “miles.” (Stationary is better than nothing as we head into the winter months, right?) As I got about halfway into my ride, I really wanted to quit. All week, I’ve struggled with being into my workouts mentally and today was no different. I navigated my iPhone to an album I don’t listen to very often anymore and pulled up the song that started my own personal revolution — Defying Gravity from Wicked. Instantly I was transported back to when I could barely walk on the treadmill for a half hour. I was reminded of how far I’d come and I started riding harder and faster. That song does it for me every single time and I’m grateful for that. And that’s why I can’t listen to it very often, I’m afraid of burning out the fire it lights. Is that weird? If it is, I don’t care. 😉
