This week has been a weird one. I haven’t even attempted to get a workout in before school because of the lack of sleep and so yesterday I hit up the gym after school for a spin bike workout in the cardio cinema.
I didn’t want to be at the gym for long because I get really excited to see Billy after work so I opted for a short/high intensity workout.
1 minute sprint, 1 minute jumps, 3 minute hill climb (out of the saddle) and repeat 6 times and each time with a little higher tension. I really love coming out of the saddle on the spin bike because it makes me feel really strong and fast plus there is no chance (okay, there is still a little chance) that I am going to fall over like I do on my road bike.
My best marathon times came when I was incorporating a lot of spin classes (along with speed work) and so I think it is really important (for me) to stay in good spinning shape.
I am warning you in advance to not zoom in on the legs…..come on, it is winter time people. A little leg hair keeps one warmer in the freezing temps, it’s science.
After I got home and caught up with Billy we headed over to my parents house for dinner and to catch up with them and tell them all about Vegas.
I made a salad with shredded bbq chicken, tomatoes, snap peas and some sourdough bread. Pears are so good right now.
My niece turned into a gangsta’ while I was gone. She’s just talking to her peeps.
Randomness for you today: This is a picture Billy sent to me while I was at work. He won a twinkie for the top performance on a lab. Our kids will have a chance for brains because of him. I think twinkies are the one and only food filled with sugar (besides black licorice and circus peanuts) that I do not care for.
And since my dinner was way too healthy, I had to dig into a bag of Halloween candy that my mom was about to throw away because she said it was stale. How dare she try and throw candy away in front of me? Don’t worry, I saved it.
The perfect ending to the night was an episode of Chopped. Lobster was one of the ingredients that they had to use for their appetizer and now I am craving it. Must find some soon.

Are you a spinner? What do you think about indoor cycling?
-I love it and I think that it is an awesome way to cross-train and make you a stronger runner.
Do you go to classes at a gym or studio?
-I used to go to about 3 a week but haven’t been to a class in way too long. I miss them and since I am not training for anything in particular right now I have much more time to try out some new classes.
How old were you when you first got a cell phone? (Question inspired by my little niece using her mom’s cell phone).
-I was 16.
