Two Left Feet
First, the bad news - I have two left feet. This is not news to me. I also have very little dance experience, so my swing dance lesson didn't propel me very far. I need to master the basic step before moving on to anything else. So, I'll practice at home this week, because I am totally going back. Secondly, it was great fun and there is a lot for me to learn there.
More on yesterday's spin class. Most of the spin classes I've taken were from either fitness instructors or casual cyclists. Yesterday's instructor was a racer. A serious competitive racer. Man.Oh.Man. It was a workout and I was not coming close to going all out. We pretended like we were doing the short but steep mountain course in the Tour de France. It was a serious workout. I went at probably 80 percent and that was enough to keep me hurting the rest of the day. I'm declaring Wednesday a rest day - which is good, as there no early morning spin classes anyway.
