Spinning and Lifting
Last night Teri and I headed to the Y. We got there in time for the 4:30 spin class. The class was pretty tough for me last night . . . I think mostly because I’d worked out the previous 5 days in a row and was just plain tired. I did just a little over 12 miles in the class, while Teri said she did 15 . . . but I got started a few minutes late due to some clipless pedal issues and getting the bike adjusted properly. Plus I’m not sure how accurate the “Pilots” are on the LeMond trainers anyway. There was one point where the instructor said “OK, there are 8 of us in the class, but we’re racing for the finish line where there are only 7 cups of water, don’t be last!” the idea was to crank up your cadence . . . I hit 156 RPM on that little jaunt . . . 🙂 Maybe a little overkill, but she did notice by saying “I can see one of you that wants that water!” I didn’t know my legs could move that fast . . . My shirt was soaked by the time we were done.
I also did my normal lifting routine, but having just propped myself up on the bike for an hour, I had to lighten the load for a couple of the exercises. I won’t bore you with details, you can look at Saturday’s workout to see the exercises I did.
Also yesterday I went to Kohl’s at Southcenter. Today I’m wearing pants that are 4 inches smaller and a belt that is 4 inches smaller as well. Sweeeeeeeeeeet.
