Attention Spin Instructors!



Seriously. Awesome, tell us when to pick it up, when to switch positions, what we’re going to be doing next. BUT THEN STOP. There is a reason there is music in spin – so that you can ride to the beat and lose yourself in it. It becomes impossible when Usher is being shouted over by you. Plus, most of us can’t understand you. We’re not all in the front row or near a speaker. We’re trying to pump our legs to the beat. There is sweat in our ears. We are cursing at you in our heads and/or out loud. AHHHHHHHHH!!!

Overly-talkative instructor aside, I did have a great workout this morning! Before 7:30 spin, I warmed up with a little strength:

  • 1-minute plank
  • 1-minute side plank
  • 1-minute side plank
  • 30-second plank
  • 30-second side plank
  • 30-second side plank
  • Single-leg hip raise, 12×3 reps each side

Insert hour-long spin.

Strength-training part two:

  • Dumbbell row, 12×3 reps, 8 lbs. (BALLER you know quite the step up from the 3 pounders of my youth AKA last year)
  • Dumbbell squat, 12×3 reps, 8 lbs.
  • Swiss-ball dumbbell chest press, 12×3 reps, 8 lbs.

Egg white & goat cheese wrap + an entire pint of blueberries

Yup, an entire pint of organic blueberries! $1.99 at Whole Foods yesterday! I got four and froze two. Insert another wrap and a glass of chocolate soymilk to round it out.

I just spent the morning with my mom driving around Fairfield County trying to find a fire pit. After four stores, we found one at Home Depot. She did not buy it. I’m on crutches, hadn’t changed from spin, and it’s a nice humid 80+ degrees out. Yum.

  1. I actually think we are best friends. I have NEVER seen anyone else eating a whole pint of blueberries. Kudos.
