I show up to boxing today - I knew there was going to be a sub, but I had heard he was pretty good so I was throwing the spaghetti to see what sticks.
At 7:05 he still hadn’t shown up. I was ready to go to the treadmill, and was disappointed as I love my Thursday class. So what happens - the most amazing thing ever. Everyone starts talking - we are all regulars. We have been taking boxing for a while - we can do it ourselves.
A started us out - she started the warm up. Everyone else fell in line. Another girl put on her ipod so we had music. S set up the stations for us to do. M, the most experienced of all of us, took the position of the teacher and let us spar with him.
It was amazing - I was so sweaty and breathless - S’s stations were out of control hard. We worked out the entire hour, as we always do and it was an amazing workout.
Nothing makes you feel as good as a community coming together over a common goal. I love my gym friends, and today absolutely warmed my heart as well as tore my muscles!
It’s Thursday - make a gym friend. They hold you accountable to being there and can help push through when you feel sluggish!
