Spinner’s High

Back in January,  I pledged to take four spin classes a week in March.  So far I have taken two spin classes.  My unexpected race plans kind of took over the spin time in my schedule. However, today I didn’t want to run.  To be honest, I kind of wanted to go home after work and take a nap. However, I decided to take a look at the gym class schedule and saw that there was a 6:15 class at a location not too far from me.  It was about 5:45 at the time, so I threw on gym clothes and was able to make it with a few minutes to spare.

As the 21st Street NYHRC isn’t my usual location, I had never had the instructor.  In spinning, the instructor really does make all the difference.  Tonight I really hit a winner!  It was probably the best spinning class I have taken since college, not including Flywheel. God, do I miss my college instructors!  Where are you Shu?

Anyways, it was a great class with never ending heavy climbs broken up by fast intervals in standing position.  It was the first class in a while where we kept turning the knob up and up and up and not looking back until I could barely turn the wheel!  The instructor kept telling us to clear our minds, which was helpful because even though he said it every two minutes, I kept forgetting.  But it was helpful to let go of all the nagging thoughts that followed me through the day, to stop making to do lists, to  close my eyes and just be for a minute and let 1901 fully absorb.

Every time I spin, I realize that it is really my perfect workout: dark, fast, intense, crazy, loud, addictive, on to the next…it’s kind of like the city. 

In sum, thank you to the 21st St Thursday night spin instructor, you cleared my mind!

Speaking of spinning, have you heard of this “racy” spinning event?


Thanks for letting me know that there have been comment issues.  Apparently, wordpress.com changed their comment policy and requires a wordpress, twitter or facebook login to comment now. It’s annoying, I understand. 

However, over a year ago I bought the domain fitnessnycblog.com.  In fact, so long ago that it expired and I have to pay an embarrassing, painful amount of money to get it back.  Clearly, I fear change!  As I have now  wasted a lot of money on the domain, I might as well use it, right?  I plan to drop the .wordpress.com pretty soon, so if you can bear with the comment situation for a while longer, hopefully it won’t be an issue for too much longer.
