Today was a great day! It was my first time back on a spin bike since before Christmas and I loved it!
I got sick right before Christmas and it had me down and out for awhile (and then I had some Saturday conflicts – Saturday is my normal spin day).
I got a nice surprise over Christmas – an Amazon gift card – one of my purchases (that I just ordered last week) a pair of tri-spin shoes (and no I don’t have any plans to do a triathlon – my spin instructor suggested tri-shoes since they are lighter). I had my SPD cleats put on yesterday at a local bike shop.
So the class I did today wasn’t at my normal studio. It was a benefit ride for Gearing Up (we raised $13K – WOW!). It was a 90 minute ride. I was more than a touch nervous. The longest ride I’d ever done was 60 minutes and I hadn’t been on a bike in over a month (and my cardio workouts have been minimal – with the exception of last weekend when I was in Tampa).
Our ride was an endurance ride of the ‘Lake Placid Iron Man route’ The descriptions of the route were fabulous! It was like we were there. 🙂 After we finished our first loop – I could feel my adrenaline pounding – it was AWESOME! What a RUSH! Time to start saving for that road bike!
PS: Just hope I can walk tomorrow!! 🙂
