What an awesome class! Thanks to everyone that was there and thanks for staying focused with some distractions at the beginning of class. I had such a great class planned. I wanted to try just a few different things. However, technology didn't have the same plans. The resulting bumps in getting started a couple of minutes late and slow transitions between videos and not being able to play all the videos I had planned, well, I was frustrated and disappointed. But you guys were awesome as always and I soon forgot all about any technical issues and had a great Ride with all of you! Especially when one of you asked for an additional song and almost the entire class agreed! I am almost never one to say no to an extra song! Bonus! And you know what is another bonus? The health and fitness benefits that you gain from staying focused and determined to get the best workout possible. And not just your physical health but your mental health as well. I am not a psychologist nor a psychiatrist (and I haven't even played one or the other on TV! lol!) but I can attest to the mental benefits that intense physical workouts provide. Throughout life, there are times when you need an extra push mentally. Whether it be reqarding family, friends, work or even your workouts, a Ride can help you push the stagnation, the distractions, the disappointments, the worry, or even the blahs out of the forefront of your mind and replace it with euphoria, pride, (good) exhaustion, (new...and better) focus, a positive outlook and a renewed determination to make the best you possible! Just like when you make the best of a less than great situation, you can make the best you possible whenever things work against you. Often, you will be surprised at how great things can turn out. Like I was in class this morning. So again, thank you to all of you! You continue to inspire me and push and challenge me to be a better instructor. So let's do it all again tomorrow! Sexy Spin at 7:00am, Thursday. Hope to see you there! Until then, in good physical and mental health, tommy
