For quite awhile I've been wanting to take a Spin Class, but couldn't find any near me. Then a couple days ago my SIL told me that her church (20 minutes away) offers spin classes, for only $2 a class!! I was SO excited!
I signed up right away and even convinced my Twinnie to come with me!!
We were the last ones to get to class, so we got to sit in the very back! I thought that was a good thing until I realized the big fan did not reach us! From the very beginning I was DRIPPING with sweat. I could hardly see because it was getting in my eyes! (I thought the hat would help with that, but it didn't.)
|See that fan up in the top, left hand corner? Yea, couldn't feel a thing!|
There was a guy there helping the 'newbies', so he adjusted the seat for me, but the whole time I felt like it was way too high. My arms and lower back are so sore today, because for the whole hour I was totally supporting my body weight on my arms and felt like I was bending over too far! I don't know if it's supposed to be that way??

But I loved the class, and plan on going once a week!
On Tuesday I started a 30 Day Vegan Challenge. It's going great! I never realized how little I actually eat meat, eggs and dairy! I honestly don't feel like I'm giving anything up. I thought the hardest thing would be to give up my icecream. But my friend, Kim, at ilaxSTUDIO, who's also a vegan, told me to try some vegan 'icecream'! I had heard about them before, so had been wanting to try them. I went shopping last night and found Almond Dream. I got the Chocolate Bites and the Praline Crunch. O.M.G. They are both amazing!!
Do you know how excited I am that I can do this vegan challenge AND still eat my 'ice cream'??!! Of course it still has calories, so I won't over do it. Well, try not to anyway. ;)
Tomorrow I'll be running 17 miles. 6 more weeks until my first marathon! Tomorrow is finally supposed to be a warm, sunny day- I can't wait to get outside and run!!
Have you taken a Spin Class? Does my form look right?
What are your running plans for the weekend?
