What a ROCKING spin class this morning! WOW...the energy there was just amazing. I left it all there...everything, I really did give this class 110%. I literally had tears in my eyes the last interval I was pushing it so hard. I was in an incredible zone. I closed my eyes and could see my goals in my mind and it pushed me through to the end. When it was over, I was just so overwhelmed, I was in tears.....tears of joy!!

The instructor this morning incredible. The energy she brought to the class was incredible. She was saying these things in Norwegian....like a drill sergeant and I have no idea what she was saying but WOW was it ever motivating!! Towards the last few intervals she wrote on the board -- PAIN IS TEMPORARY and starting cheering us on til the end. When the class was over I was talking with her and you can see how committed she is to motivating and encouraging everyone. I tell you what, I will be first in line to take her class again. Isn't it awesome when instructors give so much of themselves to help us reach our goals! Amazing...



Here is the board from our spin class! Love it....

The only negative of today was that my HRM was acting up and for the first few minutes it was not reading my HR, then my HR when bonkers -- too high, then back to normal, so my caloric burn is off.....low I think for how hard I pushed. Based off of my RPE I say I was around 500...maybe 550, but my HRM was showing 461 -- so for the sake of numbers ( I am a numbers person) lets just say 500 for today for a 50 min spin with cool down.

I am super excited about my spin class again tomorrow night then I have to be honest, I cannot wait until the weekend as I am taking a much needed REST!!!! I am going to be one lazy lady this weekend....but when Monday comes around, getting ready....I WILL BE BACK!!! ;)

Keep pressing on! Blessings and many thanks again for your support!

    i use to spin and i loved it the instructor makes all the difference there was one who like yours was very into the class and kept us going. the other not so much and it was more like a stroll through the park. finding a exercise you love is so important. I tried doing it own my own. not the same. its the energy you get from the class that makes it worth it.

    Frustrating about the HR monitor, but hooray for a good spin class!! I've never tried spinning but I would like to some day. And I do understand about a good instructor making all the difference in a fitness class, which I've experienced in zumba and other dance aerobics, as well as yoga - a good instructor can really make you feel your whole body and use it properly even though the energy/motivation issue isn't such a factor with something like yoga. Anyways, glad you had such a good class!
