Today I was in a spin class and because my legs refused to go faster, I engaged the power of the mind to make me fly like the wind. In a bid to make me cycle as fast as possible I pretended that I was cycling away from volcanic ash – you should have seen me go! As I write this I am slightly embarrassed and keep questioning if this is the kind of thing you actually share with people…
Anyway as I lay in my bath thinking about the techniques I had to employ to push myself that little bit further, I realised that the mind really can take us a lot of places. It is such a cliche but how we think really will and does affect what we do.
That said, I wonder what peril I will be escaping at my next gym session?
