Exposed, or feeling like it…

brain_therapy_400_clr_15912So first things first, this is probably just a reaction to being tired and sore, and it probably isn’t as bad as my head is telling me, but for the first time in a gym session I felt exposed the other day.  Just a regular session, nothing too much out of the ordinary with the usual kinds of activities. Now it was a longer session a 30 minute straight through, but have done that kind of thing before.

1 minute for set of exercises, finish them early then rest and be ready for the next set.  So 10 burprees in a minute, then press ups, then kettle swings, then skip then plank for 30. Finish your reps and get a rest. Now for the pressups and kettle bells fine. The plank was an effort but better breathing helps here. Skips, I am just slow, but a minute wont kill. So that leaves the burpess. For a long time, not a specialty, but doing more of them. My action is slow so 10 in 60 is effort zapping and takes the minute. So that means no rest… the effect of repeated rounds slows you down.

But this is when the mind games come, and I realize that I am always the last to finish and people “might” be watching. Now in hindsight probably not as they don’t need to see me jiggle about, and they are recovering from their own efforts. But for the first time in a session I felt exposed and isolated. It wasnt a great place to be. Now this really is against the ethos and idea of the place, and in no way is it a reflection of then, its more my mind wandering off and racing into pain and tiredness.

I needed to write it down, draw a line and move on. So that’s it.

Move on Stephen.
