Nothing Changes if Nothing Changes

Laying out my Transition Bags and Gear
Originally uploaded by Iron Mike Schubert

Lack of change is certainly not my problem these days. Every day is almost as different as it is the same. I’m walking around with open eyes, an open heart, and asking myself “Self, what do YOU want to do today?”

Last Tuesday, I brought my new bike home. It’s the Scott Plasma I talked about a couple of weeks ago. It’s a dream to ride. For its maiden voyage I rode with a new friend, who also had recently acquired a new road bike, out at Stone Mountain Park. Something just seemed right about this particular ride around the rock I grew up so close to.

Tonight, I’m headed to a “Grind” class. I’ve been told it’s unlike any “spin” class I have ever taken. I’m looking to hire a coach and these Tuesday / Thursday classes might just put this group over the edge. The classes are periodized and executed on your own bike. That means I get to use my power meter during a spin class! They also have an indoor “Current” pool that is like swimming in the ocean. They have “Grind Bricks” which allow you to do a swim before class or a run immediately after. I’m really pumped about the possibilities this change will bring.

So I have my bags laid out before me, ready to be packed for the adventure. My gear is clean and lubricated (where necessary). My mind and body are clear and primed.

I am ready for a change.
