I love spinning

Monday, May 21, 2012

I left work to get to "spinning class" on time. It's become such a production, you have to sign up 30 min ahead of class start time, the class starts at 5:30 but people started lining up today at 4:2opm, the instructor has become really popular. So today, i'm walking from the parking lot to get there, 2 women spot me with spin shoes in hand and run to beat me to the front desk, therein taking the last 2 slots left in the class, they keep running, laughing and yell over their shoulder "sorry".

That kind of rudenss is just unforgivable. I'm surprised that i didn't say anything to them (older and wiser) but their behavior was just nasty.

The same instructor teaches on Mondays at 5:45 am, i'm going to try to take his class and be done with it for the day, i did it before, i can do it again.

I hated missing a workout and the reason i got angrier was that i didn't have another pair of sneakers with me but my spin shoes so i couldn't stay for my workout. I knew that once i got home, i wouldn't make it back out.

Lesson #1 - keep another pair of sneakers in car.
Lesson #2 - Next time i see those women running, put leg out and trip them LOL, just kidding...

    you are priceless - and I love that you have found your exercise passion. Spinning is a goal but my first attempt nearly killed me - well it felt like it. I was so not keeping up and felt badly that I was keeping someone else from that class. My next attempt will be with the NOT Advanced Instructor and probably the 6am class. Work my way up to primetime :)

    Spin-On my friend - it's an awesome workout!!

    That was very rude of those women and especially to actually throw it back in your face. You are the better person, however!

    Ok...that comment about tripping them cracked me up! emoticon emoticon
    But...yes, that was very rude! We use to have an instructor that had a following like that and we had to be there so early to get in line so, I completely understand your frustration of not getting in the class! That same thing happened to me with the spin shoes also! I lucked out that there was a yoga type class at the same time so no shoes needed but...I also put spare sneakers in my car now!
