Just when my quads were starting to forgive me...

I go and take a spinning class!

I knew it was going to be tough, but holy freaking crap! That was a grueling, intense, kick-my-ass workout. I was literally pushing myself to the limit for a solid hour. At times I felt like I was going to fly right off the bike, and I could actually see my muscles trembling. I felt sort of clumsy and awkward since I don't have the right form and I didn't know the positions, but I started getting the hang of it toward the end.

And I loved every minute of it!

I'm feeling the jelly-legs right now and I'm thinking I might be in a lot of pain in the morning. Oh, and I can't feel my butt. But the instructor tells me it will get easier.

(Note to self: bring a towel next time!)

I love the spin classes also. It's amazing how many different muscles it seems to work other then running. I go to about one class a week in the winter months.

There's bike store about a mile from my house that offers spin classes - I can't wait to try it out.

Your poor quads :(

I love spinning, too! I sweat so much (it's pretty disgusting, actually) and feel like I get the best work out! Yeah, I need like a beach towel when I go. :-)

I knew you'd enjoy it!! =) It's a great work-out, what come as close to running without actually running.

I've been afraid to try Spinning. But the fact that you just decided to do it and then you did makes me a little less afraid. Just a little. Because it sounds like it was HARD. Nice job!

Marcy said...

Yet another example of why Spin class scares me LMAO!
