well, i survived the first class on monday. 

barely. 

it’s supposed to be a beginner cycling class, although the teacher later told me that it was more than beginner. 

yikes. 

i knew that actual ‘spinning’ would be intense and too much.  that’s why i took the beginner class. 

but i thought, ok, i’m on the treadmill every night…i should be able to survive the 1st class at least….

oh. my. 

up, down, faster, slower, increase tension, left foot only, right foot only, 

push-ups while riding. 

yow! 

the hardest part was standing up.  i had no idea that my thighs would hurt so much while riding! 

(although my body didn’t really ache too much the next day.) 

they say it gets better. 

8 weeks / 2 classes a week. 

i have to say, though, that i am really proud of myself for doing this. 

i have never had the courage to exercise infront of people.  never felt good enough.  never had enough self-esteem to walk into a class & be ok about it. 

i’m 39.  i finally conquered that! 

it was hard though.  i was so nervous!  but getting out of the car and taking that step through the door, was amazing! 

(may sound crazy or ridiculous to some of you….but we all have things that are out of our comfort zone…things that we may have considered, but something always held us back…..) 

so, 1 down, 15 more to go. 

(slightly worried about tonight….have a cold, hopefully some cold meds and i’ll survive class #2!)
