I like it in a group... the more the merrier!

There I said it!

I love my 5:45AM Spin class. Most people think I'm crazy, I have to get up at 4:09 to get there on time.  I really enjoy working out in a group, and this class is pretty motivating.  The class is a reservation class and sells out within 2 minutes.  The gym had some exciting news lately and they added 17 new bikes!  AWESOME, that puts 39 bikes in the room!

By the way, do you know if you search clipart for SPIN you get a bunch of dradles? Anyway, the room is a good size room, but packing THIRTY NINE people together for SPIN is just really cool.  Especially when we're all there at 5:45 AM!  All for the same thing, all to get moving, get our groove on, or to just get the workout over with.

I am SO motivated by large groups.  Just looking around the room today made me work harder.  I'm such a geek that way, I LOVE big races, because I love the team aspect of it.  Today's class felt like that, wow!

One drawback, or maybe not? It should have been called Bikram Spin!  WOW 39 people working as hard as they can for an hour in a room with no ventilation- it was HOT!!

We've had some issues lately with a choice member or two not liking the 'volume' of the class so they installed a 'decibel' meter.  It is annoying to begin with, but today was the first sellout and we noticed that there is no longer a PLUG for the fan! Thank you annoying person who doesn't like the loud music (maybe you should go take a yoga class instead or swim, it's quiet with your head in the water).  

I was quite jazzed today, I realized found my groove. I started my official Half Ironman Training this week. Hollie Kenny to the rescue!   I dragged myself out of bed on Thursday for a swim and a RUN, yes people a RUN!

 I do miss my old training buddies, as I have been doing it alone for some time.  Seeing the 'peloton' today was awesome.  I'm digging the classes, and the energy that you can pick up in a class!

I am loving the Master Swim class, even though I am a Total Immersion Swimmer!

I think it's going to be a good year!

    Love it...maybe it would be better to plug a fan in instead of a decibel meter...who needs one in a spin class...I mean really...TURN AND BURN BABY.
