Spin Monday

I had a hard time getting myself motivated this morning!  In fact, the last place I wanted to be at 5:30am was perched upon my spin bike, leading a class.  I was still exhausted from a fun girls night out Saturday with my high school crew (and beyond- we’ve added some more fabulous gals to the mix post high school 🙂 ).

Nonetheless, most of the regulars were back in class this morning and ready to ride!  I started out faking my enthusiasm and found that after the first set of sprints, I went from faking it to feeling it!  This week’s workout combined different sets and worked a wide range of motion in and out of the saddle to hit all the muscle groups.
