Spinning. My current demise.


I've been really lazy lately. In fact, I'm pretty sure my muscles are atrophying. So in attempts to ride the Salt Lake City Century in May with my lovely father, I decided I better start training.

Last night I went to a spinning class. It may have been the hardest and most grueling 60 minutes of my life. The instructor (a 100 pound little girl) made me look like a 350 pound asthmatic. Well I am asthmatic but I'm not 350 pounds. The first ten minutes of class I literally almost puked. Everyone else in the class seemed to be doing fine which made me feel even worse about my current physical condition. Well let's just say I actually made it through the entire class without passing out or walking out of the class.

I will conquer that class. Just wait and you'll see.

I always feel like the least athletic in any kind of exercise class. In no time at all I bet you'll rise to the top!

Bravo! atleast you got up and went. Hmmm...I apparently contemplate too much and then by the time I decide it is too late. Or I use that excuse. Spinning is fun, crazy, hard...Well I have to admit I haven't been in a while. So who am I kidding. They are hard. Good luck with the wheels and I am sure you will kick butt in no time.

I believe in you! And here's a little tip: when they tell you to turn the dial and make it harder... I just put my hand on the dial and fake turn it up! Yep, I that!
