238.6 - Challenge starting and venturing into a new spin studio...  
Another pound down. I've been trying to add small changes into my routine in order to add more movement in general. While I didn't run last week (I legit hate EOM), I did take the stairs up from the metro after buying my bus pass. Those stairs are quite daunting, but I did them! And I didn't pass out!

This morning, I finally ventured into a new spin studio that's been on my radar for about half a year. They do classes piecemeal and offer a Sunday 1000 class, which would perfectly fit into my schedule. After letting my savings build up in that Way2Save account, I finally have enough to buy 10 classes for $70. I went this morning, since the first one was free, to make sure I liked it and what I was getting myself into.

Holy crap, I didn't count on having not gone to spin for probably a year.

But, I made it through! I didn't aggravate my shoulder too much! I also didn't pass out and/or fall off the bike!

I'm totally going to be able to do this now...

... now to post to the community for more accountability.

Thanks! Really not sure how it happened, but I'll take it. Maybe it was those metro steps!

Have you tried spin class? I was a lot more active when I first started them, but was worried because I've had knee injuries since 1997. They don't hurt my knees! I think it's amazing.

Spin intimidates a lot of folks, but I tell them to give it a try. I like that it doesn't hurt my knees, and as I'm a rap/hip hop kid, I always dig the music.
