This week I took a cycling class! I have to admit after talking to my close friend Liesl I was a little scared to go. But knowing that my other two friends were going to be there too, I pushed through my fears and arrived at the class. I might just mention that I brought one bottle of water, which was not enough for me to finish the class! I had to stop and go fill it up half way through.
With my lack of water aside, I really enjoyed the class. I don't think I have sweated that much in a long time! I'm talking I could have filled up a bath tub with the amount of sweat that my shirt absorbed. Too graphic? Well sorry, I don't know how else to sell it to you. :)
The bad things about this class? Well let me see, my rear (and other areas near the rear) hurt seriously bad for about a day and a half after the class. Also, I am not able to do the hard core parts yet because it was way hard core for me, like when they "run" (basically standing while riding the bike). I tried a couple of times, but couldn't do it more than a few seconds. But really, over all, I liked it. I am bummed that Monday is a holiday because the YMCA will be closed, which means I don't get to go cycling. :( Perhaps I will be able to talk my hubs into going on a walk that day instead.
I suppose that is all. Well except the fact that I tried the Body Pump class again and was only able to stay for about 25 minutes. It was tougher the second time around. I honestly thought it would be easier. Oh well, perhaps I will go again next Wednesday.
