I had a special visitor to my spin class this morning.
Let’s rewind 9.2 years ago. I walked into Rona’s (below:) spin class for my first class ever. Her class was so much fun but so crazy hard that I only lasted about 20 minutes before heading back out to the elliptical. I decided to keep going and try to get good at it and started going to 3-4 of her spin classes a week. When her classes would get full she would have me get up on the instructor’s bike and she would just walk around and teach in order for one more person to get a bike. After about a year of that she told me it was time for me to start teaching (she is the spin director)… UMMMMMMM…. I was scared to death. She helped me out big time and 8 years of teaching later and I still love it.
The spin song of the day was this one. Taking it back a few years but such a fun song for sprints.
Before spin, I had a running workout to get done. Brooke and I slept at my mom’s house so that I could get in a run right before spin class and then she could just sleep most of the time I was gone. I owe my mom big time for all that she does for us.
I did 10 (maybe 11.. I lost track) 2 minute ‘hard’ intervals. Hard intervals= 5:56 pace. Stuck around a 7:45ish pace for the rest of the time. The last mile was pretty fast because I had to book it to spin.
8 miles @ 6:51 average. The intervals got me sweating and my heart pumping but overall I am really happy with the progress that I am seeing since working with Lauren!
Then it was back to pick up the brookers.
Followed by eating a completely normal breakfast. Eggs weren’t going to cut it this morning… I was ready for lunch foods.
Turns out it looks like we are living out of my car at this point. Good thing no one ever needs to ride in the passenger seat. I should work on this today.
Please watch this. The combination of Jimmy and Saved By The Bell is actually too good to be true. PS did ANY Of them age? I don’t think so.
As I was watching it Brooke asked me if these were my friends…. Yes, yes they are.
Were you into Saved By The Bell when you were growing up?
-Absolutely. It was a part of my daily life. I learned so many valuable lessons from them.
Have you been seeing progress in your running lately? How so?
Workout song that you are loving lately?
Is your car messy or clean right now?
