I had a really busy and stressful week last week at work.
By Friday, I was ready to crawl under my covers and hibernate.
I was chatting with my boss/favorite person and told her how excited I was to go home and get in bed.
“So, I can’t persuade you to come work out with me?”
I’d already run that morning, but it is hard for me to say no to her AND hard for me to say no to a workout.
“Peloton or OrangeTheory?” she asked. Since I’d already run and had a long run scheduled for the next day, I told her I preferred Peloton. We looked at the schedule and IT WAS BRITNEY V. CHRISTINA. DONE.
We went, and I rocked the shit out of that ride. I danced along, I lip synced, and just generally had an awesome time and left all of my stress on the bike. To the point that the instructor came up to me after class and said he noticed me rocking out. No shame in my game.
Sometimes I work out to maintain my weight/stay healthy, etc, but sometimes it’s purely to keep me sane. I wholeheartedly believe in medication/therapy when necessary for one’s mental health, but sometimes it’s as simple as a high dosage of endorphins.
Favorite endorphin rush?
