My first SPIN class + "Would you rather...?" No. 19

Posted Jul 08 2011 4:01am
How many of you have jumped on the spin wagon?  Can you believe I haven't tried a spin class yet?  I know.  Lindsay and Janae don't be upset with me; I live in a small town with limited options.  I remember that Kim and Jess both used spinning as their preferred crossing training following the Run Less Run Faster approach.

My friend Nikki who blogs at Mom on a Mission invited me to try one of her classes in Omaha.

Nikki and I went to middle school and high school together.  She recently has become a full-time personal trainer and group fitness instructor. 

We geared up for the class with some ninja-like moves. Nikki is an awesome instructor; encouraging and tough, pushing her class to go further.

 Mission accomplished
I fell in love with the high intensity workout!  A nice balance to running, wouldn't you spinees agree?  
I did a "double" with this class (and the next day too; I told you I was hooked) by running 3-4 miles first, followed shortly by spinning class. Hood to Coast training has been on my mind, knowing I will run 3 legs in 24-36 hours, I'm focusing on training on tired legs.  Any suggestions?

1. Would you rather spin?

Or, ride your bike uphill, outside?
I LOVE being outside, but I caught the spinning bug.  All you tri-hards, I'm curious what you will choose!
2. Would you rather jump in a pool of Jello?
Or, jump in a pool of pudding?
  I love BC.  Had too! ( source )
If it was a slip-N-slide, I choose Jello, but totally opt for a pudding plunge!
3. Would you rather be or date Lady Gaga?
Or, be or date Katy Perry?
Katy has a figure to die for, right?  But, Gaga's creativity is limitless. Gaga is dating a guy from Omaha, so I have to give her props for that.

4. Would you rather watch a 24 hour Kardashian's marathon?

 Or, watch a 24 hour Kate + 8 marathon?

Pick your poison.  Geez. I'm at a loss here. I guess the Kardashians simply because Kate drives me bonkers.

Thank you for your sweet comments on my guest post and my throwback pictures of HS track & field .  You make me smile!

What is your favorite form of cross-training?
