Had my first Spinning (gym-type, not handspinning) class today. I was NOT prepared for it! We spent virtually all our time out of the saddle, although I spent some time sitting down because my quads weren’t yet strong enough to stand the entire time.
Physically it was quite challenging ““ all my training to date has been endurance training, meaning long, low intensity work. I ride for hours at a time, but rarely get out of breath. So an hour of short, high-intensity work was a HUGE challenge.
But a good one. I think I’ll be back for more. Hopefully my legs will get stronger and it won’t be so difficult.
Meanwhile, I’m having a root canal tomorrow, which I hope goes well, but which may impact my cycling this weekend. We’ll see.
