I told you all that I would post about my experience with taking a spin class. I have now taken 4 classes and think I am ready to form an initial opinion (subject to change of course.) The first class was.. to put it bluntly... a pain in the a__. The bike seat hurt so bad that I
was begging to get to the part of the class where you pedal standing up. Standing up it turns out was worse. 45 mins the class lasted, doing a 2 min stand (uphill climb) every 7 mins.
When the class was over I made it clear that my bottom was in agony and wanted to know how in the world he ( the instructor) could stand it. He assured me that I (my butt) would get used to it after about 4 or 5 classes.
Well I do not give up easily, so I have been going back every Fri. with my ever so loyal friend Sheryl (who's butt hurt also). And it is getting easier. I decided this week to go to a different spin class during the time Georgia is Yoga because I would not be able to go to the Fri. class. Of course there was a different instructor and the class was MUCH harder. She had us doing 4 min climbs and 2 min runs.
I left the class early. I couldn't hang.
I will be however returning to my Fri. class, and appreciating Scott the instructor much more.
