Well spinning class was pretty fun last night. I got there about 10 minutes early to meet the instructor who happened to be a sub. New style of bike than I used last time but I was able to get it adjusted without any help. Which was good since the there were 3 other people who had never been in a spinning class before. It was a ton of out of the saddle stuff which is what I was hoping for. That is one area I need a lot of work on the road bike and one of the reasons I knew I would make it to spin class eventually. The legs feel fine today although my lower back is sore. I am sure that is simply due to using muscles I am not used to using as opposed to doing any damage. Tonightís workout is a walk to the gym and my lifting routine. So that should work it out I hope
At the end of the class I stayed to chat with the instructor about it, and she complimented me and was impressed with how I stayed with it all for the first time spinning in a long time. She also said she saw me sneaking in bumps in the tension on the bike and seemed pretty impressed by that also. So, it was a good class and I just home the back pain goes away and I am sure it will. Just 2 things I wish about the spinning. One, that the instructor from last night was a regular one at our gym location instead of just subbing, she did really good and made the class fun and 2, that they had more class time choices. I can pretty much only make Monday evening classes, since Saturdays are super early and Wednesday is at 5:30 and I have to close the office at 5 so I canít really make it in time. So at least for now, I will be going on Mondays for spinning and using it as a tool to switch up the routine some and to keep it interesting.
I did blow it on the drinking last night and had a few more than I should have. The game was fun to watch for a change and my Bengalís won. But I knew going in that would be the case and I think I have gotten the mentality back that I will have times when I wonít do as well as other. So it just means I keep up the work and move on from there.
