So Tobie and I attended our first spinning class today.
I do a lot of interval training on bikes, especially when my knee starts being an idiot. But I must admit, I've always been afraid of spin classes, figuring they are reserved for only the uber-fit.
But today we just went for it, the timing worked out and we were craving a good sweat (besides, I was thinking safety in numbers).
It was pretty fun actually and a hoooo-nanny of a cardio workout! But, I must say the music the instructor was playing was très horrible.
At one point the instructor did a Phil Collins medley which gave Tobie and I such a giggle fit we almost had to leave. She retaliated by walking over to Tobie's bike and cranking up his resistance by about 740 degrees.
Both he and I had visions we were in a BAD rom com...we were the single 30-somethings meeting at a spin class, locking eyes during "In the Air Tonight" and then a cut to us later in matching white turtlenecks, drinking white wine in front of a fireplace. Pure comedy. Anyway we got a double abdominal workout this evening as a result.
Is is bad form to bring your shuffle to a spin class?
