We had our first group spin session this morning. It was a great opportunity to see just how out of shape I am. We had almost 22 people show up for the session and were told that if everyone who expressed interest in joining the team does so, we will be nearly 40 strong!
This is the first time I’ve ever tried spinning. I’d heard horror stories from other cyclists about how many spin instructors focused mostly on strength training rather than “spinning”, which could actually lead to knee problems. Fortunately, our instructor is also the team cycle coach, so his focus was really on building strength needed to ride a bicycle. The one down side, it was really hot! I definitely need to bring more water to the next Sunday’s session.
