I was told to show up for the 6:30 spin class Thursday night...so I arrived at 5:45 to do some treadmill work prior, and I saw a class already going with my 6:30 instructor giving it all he had. I figured his schedule must have changed, so I jumped on a LifeCycle and pounded out 30 minutes of work feeling pretty good about things. As I cooled down I saw the class break up so I jokingly went over and let him know I was ready for the 6:30 session...his reply?....Let me go change shorts and I'll be right back.
He wasn't kidding.
I had no choice..I already committed to do this and figured the 30 minutes on the LifeCycle was punishment for being a wiseguy. I made it through...not so much on the "out of saddle" time...need to work on that. Overall, it felt good and I'm learning to adjust to the seat being at least even with the bars positioning.
For the record..that instructor is an animal...he worked every bit as hard on the 6:30 session as he did in the earlier one........one day,right?
Thanks for the support. It looks like once us "indulgers" can get by the new factor..we're pretty hard workers. I'm not denying this though.... my major motivation to get this right is still that carbon ride next spring...if it works out as a just reward, cool. if it ends up I ride like a madman for 10 months only for fitness and weight loss...cool as well. Benefits both ways I guess.
Now, let's all chip in and help Steve2K get over his "shutterbug".
