Spin class tonight was another tough one! We keep pounding out the strength sets. I’d tell you what all we did, but truthfully I can’t even remember what we did! The one thing that sticks in my mind was a wicked standing set: 3 min stand, 30 sec high cadence sitting, 2:30 standing, 30 sec high cadence sitting, 2:00…1:30…you get the idea. Part way through Angie mentioned that if we lived in a house with stairs we may need some help getting up those stairs. I’ll see if I can recruit Finlay to help, but I somehow doubt my 15 lb dog will do much more than lick my face in encouragement.
The guys at Bow Cycle have a TV set up over the checkout register and it was set to the men’s Canada versus Norway hockey game. It was great inspiration to watch them win convincingly 8-0. I know a few folks have commented that both the men’s and women’s hockey team have really pounded their opponents. True enough, but I think they really want to send a message that they are here for gold…so be it. Core after class was a total gong show as a few of us were trying to watch the men’s figure skating (including Angie) so we haphazardly made it through 10 minutes, then called it quits.
Are you watching the Olympics? I am soaking up as much as possible. My office is even broadcasting the games in our foyer during the day. Now that I’ve tried a few of these winter sports lately (curling, skiing, skating) I have an even bigger appreciation of the events.
And in case you have ever looked at a speed skater’s thighs and thought…”wow…those are huge!” you’d be right. Jeremy Wotherspoon’s thighs each measure 70 cm. Wow. I’m going to go measure mine right now to see how they stack up.
Alright…being that it is 10:00 pm I guess I should attempt to tackle those stairs in my house and head to bed. Hope everyone is having a great week!!
