Shit son. oh my god. spin class. intense. Although I have a dirty mouth if you hear me talk, I have tamed it a bit for this blog, but for this one post, f***. It was my first class, I loved and hated it all at the same time. I "spun" quite fast. The instructor talked to me for a minute before we began and briefly went over the whole resistance thing, something about find your maximum and then drop it down to 50%. I didn't have time to find my maximum, so I just turned it to a random place (there are no numbers on the knob) and went from there. I did the 50% or whatever, I moved it a bit to say 60% when we were told to, but when she said 70% I said f*** it. I stayed at 60%, and it was hard. They went all the way up to 110% of their maximum, and I could tell these people were working hard. I of course forgot the new towel that I purchased so there was a puddle of water (well I felt there should have been a lake that I could have dived in because I was sweating so much) below me. We rode for 45 minutes, but not just sitting, oh no, we stood and sat stood and sat, intense, did a nice cool down and then I sort of barely made it up the stairs to the locker room where I sat still and waited to calm down a bit. My face was beat red, my legs wobbled, my shirt completely soaked through, and yet I felt energized. I know I know that is what is supposed to happen, but to have it actually be true after I did a f***ing hard work out was fantastic. I also want to go back, and that my friend is the important thing. The instructor was nice, the music was great and loud, I will bring my towel next time, and oh about half way through I told myself to smile, I did, and my whole body relaxed when I pedaled, so I had to keep telling myself to smile, and it worked! Yay for first class, I hope to find my actual maximum soon, and I need to remember to drink water because i sweat so much in there.
Anywho, class was much better today, really like my professors more. My social welfare class is set up more like a history class, and now that I understand that, I have a much better attitude about it so woot woot. My energy was better today too, the funk has passed.
I am done with classes for the week, meaning I have nothing to do...except all the reading that has been assigned, but that is just a small detail. Tomorrow night I am going to see 39 Steps, FIE bought tickets for us, well we bought them I suppose but they distributed them to us. I plan on exploring, getting on a bus and going somewhere, but I might also do some shopping. I'll see where the wind blows me in the morning. oh i'll put pictures up tomorrow too I swear!
Oh my goodness!...I discovered Lattes today...I am fully aware that I am behind the times, but I am just beginning to like coffee, and well now I can say I like it....It was so so good, I don't know how I was missing out on it all these years. But, now I know, I have entered another period of my life, thank you soya and coffee, what a delight.
Okay, now I need to attempt some reading. Be well my dear ones. rest easy.
