made it through the first night of spin class!!
I decided I REALLY need to bump up my workout intensities, so I signed up for a 45 minute spin class. Boy, was it a workout!!! I've never done it before. I watched every second click by on the clock. But, I perservered and stuck with it! Granted, my speed and my resistance probably were slow & easy, but my goal for last night was to just make it through the class! I wasn't able to do all of the standing up that they did, but I made it through--that's all that matters to me at this point. The class made me realize that I'm totally not in the best of shape cardio-wise, which I pretty much already knew--it just reinforced the fact I need to work at it. (I don't mind doing weight training, but I've never been a big cardio person.) Anyways, I just wanted to share my excitement at surviving my first night of spin!
I know with each class I do that I'll become a little more cardio-healthy. That's my goal!
Just keep pushing it every time, and before you know it you'll be doing everything.

I was terrified of trying spin class and now I Typically do 3 1 hour classes and a 2 hour endurance class on Sunday. With the right person leading the class time will fly. Just work at your own level but be honest and if you think you can push a bit harder then push a bit harder. Getting out of the saddle does take some getting used to and can be murder on the legs, but that is what we are there for a good solid workout.
