After my first day of spinning and then my first TaeKwonDo Black belt class I was exhausted. The next morning I woke and could not move, I almost called for help for somebody to sling my legs over the side of the bed so that I could stand to go pee. Moving slowly and painfully I managed my way to the bathroom. I went to work and that seemed to get most of the stiffness out, but I was still sore.

This morning I decided that I would go spin again, I went and picked up Shelah to go with me. We arrived early to get that good seat, my instructor was eager to meet a potential new customer and he is always concerned about any health problems that we might have. A few more people arrived and the session began, the lights went low and the music went load. Great music with a beat and the spinning began, today even though I was sore I gave it my best. I would love to have a speedometer on that thing to see how fast and far we actually went. Shelah had a smile on her face most of the time, after 45 minutes and a gallon of sweat it was time for the cool down part of the session. The pace slowed and now it was time to descend to the floor, I was paralysed, I could hardly move my legs to get off the bike. I was really going to be in pain, Shelah and I got in the truck to go home, we only live 5 minutes away but that was enough time to freeze in place. Neither of us could get out of the truck, each step we took was sheer agony, no pain no gain, holy sh.....t does it have to be that way? It was so much fun, I am looking for ways to put more hours in my day to fit in more spinning, its just the thing to get me back to being the happy, crazy person that I want to be.
