It's ok not to run or bike.. Walking is also a good workout!

I must say the calories I burnt up during the spin class was amazing. If I could afford a membership I would give another try. I'm thinking maybe an investment into an exercise bike would be a good idea for cross training.. Hello Santa? I have been a good girl, here is my request:

Thank you everyone for your replies and ideas.

I am not a runner, and I haven't done spinning, so maybe I'm way off base...

From what SUMMERLVN85 said, it sounds like its a muscle(group) that you don't usually work, that got worked pretty good during the spinning class. Now that muscle is sore, maybe putting pressure on things around it that it wouldn't otherwise. If it feels more like muscle soreness than pain from an injury, it might be a good idea to do another couple spinning classes or something similar (stationary biking?) to continue strengthening that muscle. It seems like once it got strong enough, it was no longer sore for SUMMERLVN85.

If it feels more like pain from an injury though, you might try just taking it easy, stick to walking and maybe easy biking, and let it heal. If it keeps going on, you might consider talking to your doctor, make sure it isn't serious at least.

You might also do some research and see if you can find a stretch or two that stretch the pelvic region of the body. I know whenever I have soreness of any kind, from just tired muscles to pulled muscles, stretching always helps it feel better.

The free pass to the "Y" was only a one day thing. I have a treadmill at home and really wish I had an elliptical instead. I will try to do more fast walking and "try" to consume less calories... with the holidays that will be a big challendge!

If you work out at the "Y" perhaps you could revert to an elliptical ... studies show you get as great a workout and it would be easier on your pelvis.

Our bodies react in different ways, weeding yourself back into anything after an injury is so very important but at least an elliptical will help you burn calories and keep you in shape. Good luck.

I'm a runner too and decided about 5 weeks ago to add spinning for cross training. After my first class, I thought the same as you..."What have I done?". I thought to myself it's a good thing I'm done having children because I'd never be able to have any more after that spinning class! But seriously, I've now been spinning once a week for 5 weeks and I'm back to normal. At first I had an awful time running and had to walk a lot (which also hurt). But now I'm back to normal and running even better than before I started spinning. The spinning has really helped strengthen my quads. I think if you stick with spinning a few more times, you're soreness may go away.

Its terrible... I am a runner... its the one thing I really like to do. A few weeks ago I had a free pass at the local YMCA and included with that pass was a spinning class or any group exercise class i wanted to do. I have not tried spinning and thought COOL!! I'm going to check it out! Well that was a few weeks ago and I have not been able to run since then. For about a week after the spinning I felt like i was still on that bike, but now when I run my pelvic bones hurt. I stopped running for about ten days and replaced it with fast walking. Today I thought I would be "healed" from my spinning and tried a run... felt no pain during but oh my goodness after sitting for a few minutes and then standing up OUCH!!

I don't know what to do, I gained five pounds and I am very frustrated. Running was the one thing the helped me lose the pounds... HELP!
