I Heart Spinning!

I love spinning. I didn’t always.

When I first got on the bike about four years ago, I wondered the entire time why the HELL did I think I was capable of joining these crazy nuts in this steamy room on this insanely uncomfortable contraption? I was very upset. I could have easily been humming along on a treadmill! And the pain after the first time? I don’t know if men feel this pain, but the pain in the groin area of a woman after her first time on a spin bike…ain’t pretty. It is downright wrong and severely uncomfortable. I vowed I would never, ever go back!

But I did. Until I could not live without it. Before you knew it, I was GOOD! I was in the front of the class, my “area” got used to the crazy contraption very quickly, and it no longer became and issue. Now, I get up and go to 6:45 AM Spin class. You *have* to love an activity to get up 4:40 AM in order to get prepared for it. This is the area where I will devote to my love of spinning, from the shoes, to the gear, to the techniques, and of course most important of all THE MUSIC!
