Vi-o-lated!

Wow. Why did no one tell me that taking spin class would leave me feeling like I've been violated in my lady parts?? I expected to be sore in my legs. I feel like someone tried to assault me!!! I mean it literally feels like I've got bruises. Sometimes it hurts to sit. However, I LOVED IT!!! So much fun, so invigorating, and so the toughest thing I have ever done workout-wise! There were 3 first timers in the class (it was Spin 101) and I felt like I kept up pretty well. I don't think I've ever sweated that much during a workout. It was wonderful. I did make a poor choice, however, by getting there 30 minutes early and deciding to do the elliptical for 30 minutes prior to class. What a dumb move. Because of this, my legs were nearly fatigued by the time class started, which resulted in my inability to stand for much of our first standing song (we totally spun to Bon Jovi's newest album). I did, however, make it through the entire last song standing the whole time!! I was so proud of myself. I love it. I'm going again at 5 a.m. Tuesday morning. I'm thinking spinning on Tuesdays and Thursdays will be good with regular workouts or other aerobic classes the other days.

I also made it in at 4:30 again this morning and walked 4 miles. I love this place!!

Hi,

My name is Andrea and I'm working on the Spinning Nation event. I won't bore you with the details, but it's the first nationwide fundraising event ever and we have a very small staff putting it together. If you like the idea after you take a look at what we're doing and wouldn't mind mentioning us on your blog, it would help a lot. If not, I understand. Blogs are a very personal thing and I'd never ask if it weren't all for good causes. Thanks, you can always reach me at andrea@sportsgrants.org. The website is www.spinningnation.org.

Best regards,
Andrea
