Trying New Things
For the past few years, I have taken the Monday/Wednesday spin call with Mary. Mary is so fun and energetic. She plays the newest, up to the second music. We were spinning to "Call me Maybe" in March--way before the spoofing thing got big. I would love to get back into the Monday/Wednesday spin classes, but my daughter goes to school on Tuesday and Wednesday. Mary does not have a Tuesday morning class. What to do?
In Lori's class, we do something called Tabata. It is a type of high intensity interval training. This stuff is intense! Lori told us we burn 50 calories in a 4 minute cycle and that our metabolism stays higher for the rest of the day. I'll take it! The workout is tough, but it feels great. For me, I am hoping Tabata and its anaerobic workout training will help my running. I don't think I have been doing it long enough to see progress yet, but I hope it trains my lungs to work hard and longer. I am enjoying my two different spin classes. The two different instructors and their different styles keeps me from getting bored.
A dream is a wish...
