The Fire Within!

My spin instructor talked about the "fire within" and how it must be part of our daily routine. At the beginning of every class she ask us to give her the first 20 minutes.

She went on to explain how it takes at least 20 minutes to get the "fire within" started. The warm-up is the strike of the match or the stick against the rock. The striking of the match is not always easy and it can take about 5 to 7 minutes to get a spark. Once the spark is light you must fan the spark to light the fire. This can take about 5 minutes. Once the heat enters the "fire within" grows inside and the body is ready to roll. She said the fire must be out of control for at least 30 minutes for the body to burn fat. After 45 minutes she takes us down to the cooling off point. During this time the fire is smoldering. She explained that a smoldering body, is a fat buring body all day. That is all good to me!

My goal is to keep that fire going because in the end my body will be rewarded.

Push for that "fire within"!
