I went into this mornings spin class feeling refreshed and ready to work ( Ahhhhh Zensah….), and I left spent. That was the point right?!?! It was today. It was an interval style class with lots and lots of climbing. I also used a new playlist with weird and different music. I liked it. I also did not preview every second of every song and was trying to listen hard to the lyrics in case I had to cough loudly over an escaped “F” bomb. It’s happened to me once and I vow to never let it happen again! It was the first year I taught at the Y…the song I played was over 5 minutes long and all music; or so I thought. All of a sudden an audience is cheering and a dude comes over the speakers “F- U, mother effer!!!” I was mortified!!! The class got a good laugh and I apologized up and down. I think I got a way with it because nobody left a bad comment for me. Whew!
So anyway – today’s class had about 22 minutes worth of hills, some fast, some slow. It was a killer! I planned on lifting weights after class, but I was beat. I went on the elliptical for about 25 minutes in my Recovery Zone. I was able to read a lot of the latest issue of Runner’s World. They had an interesting sounding and looking recipe for a cauliflower mac n’ cheese. I might make this.
I was feeling as if I had to do some kind of strength training today. So while I watched The Young and the Restless It is getting really good. Cane is dead ( the hot Aussie) and Chance is alive! ( 😉 ) I did some core work:
I did a few sets of 30 seconds of this. It’s better than nothing right?!?! RIGHT!!
On tap for tomorrow: RUN!
