Finally some decent weather!

30 Dec

Yesterday I decided to go to a spin class! I have been wanting to make it to a class at the gym for a while, but things were just not lining up! It was my first spin class in over 2 years, and I thought with all my running and exercising it was going to be a BREEZE! Well I was humbled for sure =/ level 16 was my “honest working level” as the instructor called it…and I had to WORK hard! My end result was somewhere around 430 calories burnt, 20km distance and as you see 53:00 minutes of sheer pain! I guess I need to do this more often!


Finally it has warmed up here in the city! -10 with the windchill but SUNNY! I went for a 7km run, and as you see, was quite sweaty when I got home. I saw other runners today, 3 to be exact! I have not “run” across anyone by my place while running in about 2 weeks!


This was the inside of my running jacket, the whole back was full of water…or sweat…I donno!


I seriously can’t believe my legs were working today after yesterdays spin class…by the way…my bum is SO sore!

After my run, a little later we all went to an outdoor rink! As you see, Parker wanted to sit in the chair instead of pushing it! Although, he did do some work ;)


I had this lettuce wrapped burger for dinner. The burger presents well, but was not that great. I found it really watery…


I am undecided if I will hit up another spin class tomorrow, I have to work at noon and the class starts at 10am. Mind you with that hour in between I may have enough time to go to the Running Room and pick up our Resolution Run race packages!

    Nice! I love spinning! After so many runs and miles biked I also thought spinning would be a breeze when I tried it for the first time today and it proved me wrong. But the classes are awesome. Glad you got some nice weather to run in :)

      I have to make a habit of going to a spin class at least once every 2 weeks I think, its great cardio! not to mention…hard on the legs lol.

    Only 430 cals in a spin class. I would of thought at least 500 + for all that effort and hard bloody work.
    Well done you for going for a run the next day, I’d be dying for sure!

      I know! I was kind of shocked, but oh well!
      Thanks, I thought I was just going to go for a short run, but since it was so beautiful out and I was not feeling the pain I just kept running!

    I love spinning–it gets “easier” (aka, your resistance gets pushed up:) the more you do it!

      hahah, so what you are saying is that it does not get easier! ;)
      I look forward to making it to more classes!!
