Journey of a body on this earth

Spinning in Control

2 Comments

Those of you who are reading this blog regularly will know I set a goal to participate in a spin class within six months.  Well, all I can say is that I think I’ll be spinning before that.  Today I did 17 minutes on the spin bike which is 7 minutes more than before.  Hurray!  After that I moved over to another machine and completed my workout for a total time of 35 minutes.  Hoo-ha!   My ol’ body remembers what it’s like to do cardio and it’s responding nicely.  And my knee feels so incredibly strong.  Unbelievable!

Today I tried standing up on the bike which happens throughout a spin class.   I was successful several times at approximately 15 second intervals.  Yay!   I didn’t want to push it until I found out how I responded to just a small amount of time standing up on the bike.

I found this on youtube and I can’t stop laughing.  If you’re a Jimmy Fallon fan, you’ve gotta check it out.  And no, I will not be dressed like this in the spin class.  😛
