Queue the Rocky Music

So a few months ago a I went to my very first cycle class with a friend of mine from work. It was brutal. The next day I could barely sit down. Those of you who have ever participated in one of these classes you know what I am talking about. She had to sit out of it after about 1/2 the class. I decided that I would give it another chance, but really never did. I think deep down I was scared.

Tonight after an intense workout on my arms with my trainer she asked if we wanted to do the cycle class with her for my cardio work out. Oh man about one song in I thought I was going to DIE, 45 minutes later, after surviving a seat falling off and drinking 24 ounces of water I wobbled out of the gym. I SURVIVED, I know its a miracle.

I really enjoyed the class and I will go back, hopefully it wont take me three months this time. I feel like I actually accomplished something tonight.

If I have a hard time moving in the next few days its because my arms hurt because of my weight training and my legs hurt from cycle. So please just do me a favor and help a girl out.

ok off to do the laundry...oh joy!

I've been scared of the spin classes since I first heard of them. I like biking and I'm not going to ruin my tastes of them in one of those spin-like-hell sessions.

No thanks!

Kudos to you for taking them on AND surviving!
