I made it to spin class at Bow Cycle tonight for the first time in a couple of weeks! No lie, I was so excited to ride tonight since I’d be on my new bike! Coach Angie had one heck of a routine in store for us too. It was strength night tonight. We did some big gear single legs (2 minute intervals!!!), some more intervals where we would push big gears then get off the bike and do squats and repeat, plus some zone 4 intervals. My legs were feeling that workout, especially the squats!! Wow… Riding felt amazing and it was really comfortable on the bike. Angie pushed us hard, I was focused yet smiling the entire way through. Despite the hard workout it felt like the entire ride flew by, as did the core workout afterward. After that I came home, kicked my feet up and enjoyed a little hot chocolate with marshmallows. Perfect evening!
I’ve always wanted to try spin class, but im too scared hehe. Sounds like a good work out and obviously hot chocolate and marshmallows is a great way to end any night!
Hot chocolate has been my go-to evening treat lately. Perfect for unwinding and warming up before bed after a long day/workout.
Sounds like a great rewards for such a hard workout! My legs are still killing me from sqauts monday night at BodyPump class!
I heart Spin class!
You can spin for two minutes with one leg??! In a big gear? Wow!
There’s nothing like that feeling of accomplishment after an awesome workout like that! Great job Leana!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
I love spin! And one legged drills, they are tough!!
BTW – love your blog header! I need to find a shot of the CdA swim start – it’s so exciting!

Ouch! I would be crying like a baby. Isn’t it amazing what we’ll pay money to have done to us?

Ouch! One leg drills for 1min hurt! Bet it was awesome to ride the new bike though lol. 9p swims are tough, but MUCH better for me than 5:30am LOL.
You almost made me want to get ready for a 5a spin class tomorrow, until you mentioned the whole one leg thing. Yikes!
