This isn’t really a Friday Favs. I kinda did a Friday favs thing yesterday… plus, this is my blog! So shut up!
Anyway. What I’m SO excited about today is completely endorphin fueled. I was fully planning on going to a 10:00 am workout class at the Walnut Creek YMCA, but I couldn’t fall asleep last night after I got off work… So I just ended up going to a spin class at noon.
I admit, I pledged to walk 1K for the “Start Somewhere” walk… And I didn’t. Instead, I took an intense spin class with 3 guys discussing Ironman Madison… I will also admit that I keep calling it the “Start Something” walk and I envision people on the streets of downtown DSM getting into it over parking spaces and spilled mochas.
So the Des Moines Y is having a fall challenge where you get a signature for every class you take in October and November, and if you take 30 classes in 60 days you get a T-shirt. Well… I am SO freaking motivated by free stuff it’s not even funny.
So I found out about this challenge on Tuesday during my Yoga class, so I immediately got a card and got my first signature. Since then, I took a spin class on Wednesday, went to an intense Y-Pump class on Thursday that I usually go to, and then took a spin class today when I would have usually just gone for a walk or done my own ‘stationary bike with a mag’ thing.
As I’m walking out I’m counting my 4 signatures over and over again and I keep getting 5… Tuesday… Wednesday… Thursday… Friday… AND ONE MORE?! What the heck? So as I get to my car in the parking lot I finally look at the signatures. The spin dude today signed it twice! Just because it was my lucky day! I know he did it on purpose because… well, I just know! I was totally geeking out in my car. Clearly, I’m still geeking out.
Thanks for making my day spin dude.
