Survived my First Spinning Class
Me, one other fellow and a whole bunch of ladies in their 30's, 40's and 50's.
I did pretty well, except they do a LOT of standing, and standing over the seat, which I am not used to doing. So, my "standing" muscles got pretty well used. I do standing on my rides and in the DVD's I use, but not 6 minutes at a time.
I kept the old heart rate 150 or below, which is which is about as high as I should go, given my recent heart repair.
But, I liked the instructor (she is a friend of mine) and the folks were pretty nice. The instructor urged me to pace myself, which I did. No pressure to go beyond what you thought appropriate.
