New spinning class

2 workouts in 2 days, yeah! Haha, it’s amazing that getting 2 workouts in is now an accomplishment to me, my how pregnancy changes things. I went last night to my first spinning class in months! It was at 7:30, which was a little tough for me, but I hope to do it weekly as it gives me enough time to get home feed the dogs, eat dinner with the hubby and still make it to the gym for a good workout. The spinning studio at Urban Active is really nice. It’s a circular room and the instructor is up on a little stage in front. The bikes are new, but unfortunately don’t have cadence computers. The room has this gigantic metal fan that is above your heads, it’s kind of scary. I just kept thinking, what if that thing falls down on us, it would chop us all up. I was a little skeptical when I walked into the class. I am used to the 6am JCC class which is made up of mostly real cyclist, not just gym spinners. The instructor was decked out in cute black yoga pants with a pink tattoo design up the leg, matching pink top and this mini cardigan sweater top. Not your typical cycling wear, so I thought I was in for a sucky workout, but she was actually very good. There were very few people in the class and I was one of only two wearing padded bike shorts and clip on shoes, so definitely not a cyclist class, but still am awesome workout. The music was really loud and crappy, but it was better than most of the torturous music the spinning instructor at the JCC played. I am most definitely out of biking shape, ugh. My butt is sore today. But I am happy to be sore, it’s been awhile.

The JCC definitely has a lot of hardcore cyclists!
