How was your workout?

Great to see so many names and results up on the whiteboard last night, such a busy day!    I know we are always encouraging you to write your results up in order to keep track of scores, and to make the most of group motivation.

But remember that the your whiteboard score is not the only thing.

As Seth Godin says in an article I read recently, our feeling about our workout has changed over time.

It used to be, "that was a sweet workout, I worked hard, and feel great"

But if you start being a bit too tough on yourself in class, the answer can easily become " yeah ok, but most of the other guys beat me..."  and then all of a sudden it's "that sucked, I didn't lift anywhere near what I thought I would...."

Or "I tracked my score and it ranks me 237th in the world, my heart rate was at 85% of maximum, and I averaged 437 watts across the workout...:"

But it's so easy to get obsessed about what the workout MEANS to your life, instead of remembering what the workout allows you to DO with your life.

More information doesn't always make us happier. If the workout is always something to be won or lost, completely losing the point of why you joined us in the first place, which was to learn to move better, to feel better, and to deal with life's daily issues effectively.

How was your workout?  Is not the same as, how great do you feel?
