Oh man, another tough day mentally.

Core was fine, in fact I threw in an extra exercise and my knee lifts felt good! That was nice.

At spinning it was another story. Sure, I was tired from yesterday but I don't seem to have the fortitude to push through lately... Tomorrow is a rest day so why can't I work hard two days in a row? No idea.

The entire class was a simulated race so there was not as much rest as usual, we mostly kept the resistance around 7-9/10 on a scale of perceived effort and even at 8 I was in trouble. Towards the end of the class I had to quit a couple of times and just stand on my pedals to catch my breath. Then with about 20 seconds to go (we had been ramping it up for the last 1.5 minutes – just like yesterday) I simply had to stop pedaling. Rats.

I feel like I can't get enough air! It's starting to bother me. Time to see my doctor and maybe a specialist? But I feel like it takes WAY too long to find the cause. Of course the longer I wait the longer I will be in the dark. :(

I just don't recall ever feeling exactly like this when my body is working properly and I'm just not fit, this seems like something different that is inhibiting me from working hard.
