The Waiting Game and indoor cycling FTW

I am still waiting to hear back from school #2. After a number of events that have occurred over the past week, I am starting to feel much more confident in my decision and I am ready to get the ball rolling. Right now.

In other news, I went to my first real spinning class over the weekend. As I mentioned before, I’ve been to my share of spinning classes. For some tri practices, we would schedule to control the school’s spinning room…but usually that meant we’d get on the bikes and do whatever we wanted for an hour while listening to gansta rap and talking about what we wanted for dinner and what kind of beer was our favorite. You know, the top priorities…

However, I am proud to say that Saturday’s class kicked. my. butt. It was ahhh-mahzing. By the end of the hour I was pouring sweat, my muscles were fatigued, and I was exhausted. The music was pretty pumpin’ as well. Normally I don’t like dance mixes of popular songs, but our instructor made it work. I found myself singing along to Lady Gaga and the Black Eyed Peas (sssh, do not tell my friends…). Our cool-down was my new favorite song: We are young. Again, not my typical type of favorite song but I just cannot stop myself from being in love with it.

Call me crazy, but that’s the sign of a good workout to me…when I’ve just about spent every last ounce of energy but still want to come back for me.

For Saturday’s class, I bought a 1-class pass but, now that I’m addicted, I’ve gotten a 5-class pass and I’m already going bananas over scheduling more. Next up: Wednesday!

After all of the serious biking I did in my junior and senior years of undergrad, I lost my passion for cycling. But yeah, it’s back now.

And one last random tidbit. If you’re in the southeast US, try Yazoo Hefeweizen. It tastes just like banana bread.
