The wife was struck down by illness following her 11 miler on Saturday, so I had to go it alone to spinning class. I would have gladly skipped, but seeing as how I slacked off on Saturday and didn't do my run again <insert heat related excuse> I knew I had to do some kind of cardio plus I already paid my 15 dollars. Either my conditioning is getting worse or I'm working myself progressively harder in this class. I still can't copy all the fancy bike "traveling" moves, but I try to keep my pedals in sync with the instructor. My back bothers me a little bit during the class, but so far I've been able to avoid any residual pain, which is great and has allowed me to keep coming back week after week.
