So the good thing about group exercise classes, is that once I have booked I would go, without listening to the entire monologue trying to convince me to stay at home.
This week storm Francis landed in the Netherlands and throughout the night there was enough wind and rain to be sure it was a real storm and not a fake one.
The day continued with a number of showers the rain coming down hard and fast at times. I even texted the gym guys to find out if they will let us know if my outdoor bootcamp class is cancelled or moved indoors, and they reassured be that it is still going ahead, still in the park.
I won’t lie, I had my doubts but nevertheless, when the time came, I put on my workout gear, added a rain jacket, and cycled to the meeting point in the park.
I saw on the schedule it was a new trainer, and it was in fact get first day, but she was resourceful in finding us a spot u up train under the bridge, and suggesting alternative exercises where the rain waylaid our plans. During the session there were moments of sunshine and others where the heavens opened and the water came down in bucketfuls.
Afterwards I was happy that I had the opportunity to train, even if I felt a bit apprehensive about it beforehand.
Be kind. Stay safe.
