Today, I took a 2-hour endurance spinning class. There was a point, about 20 minutes from the end, when I thought my legs were going to explode. But, I released the tension just a hair and powered through it.
I'm still in a state of shock that I could do it.
We mirrored the Modesto to San Jose ride, which has some wicked mountains. There was a 4,000 ft one that took 18 minutes of climbing. By the time we reached the top, I couldn't believe I'd done it. Then, when we coasted for a bit, the instructor said that to get to the 2 hour mark, we would be repeating that climb.
I've already burned my calories for the day and am about to ice my ankle and have a cup of tea.
