I've Lost My Spinning Virginity
Its new to me and new to some triathlon club members so this was our first experience of spinning, and it happened to be an advanced class! I was really surprised as I thought we would be broken in gently... No chance!
The class was for 45 minutes and I can honestly say I worked as hard as I could for the whole session. I was soaked through by the end of the session and the towel I brought with me you could ring out I had worked that hard... YUK!.
We had to find our base level, a level hard enough to get the RPM above 60 but relaxed enough for you to catch you breath and give your legs a break.
My base level was 8 and most of the session was completed between the gears 10-18, I enjoyed getting out the saddle and finding the rhythm, keeping my heels down and that's something I can remember when im out climbing hills next triathlon season.
The session was completed with a mixture of music everything from pure cheese to dance tracks which I really enjoyed but we had to finish the session with a 2 mile sprint, and this was to the Benny Hill music.. That hurt my legs and my ears!
I must of enjoyed it, as when I managed to get off the bike and down the stairs I forked out for next weeks session so roll on next week.
