When The Wind Blows . . .
. . . cycle in the gym instead of on the road.
When I checked the weather forecast for the week on Saturday evening, I realised that I was going to struggle this week - I had to get at least 80 miles on the bike, but the forecast was for gales and rain, starting on Sunday evening. This was why I headed out on Sunday morning to get in 30-odd miles, even though I wasn’t really in the mood.
With feeling ill last night (& still feeling a little unusual right now), and a meeting planned for Teesside this afternoon, I couldn’t cycle to work today either. So I headed off for the Tuesday morning spin class instead - it’s 45 minutes, and only counts as 15 miles . . . but I need the mileage.
They’ve re-arranged the bikes in the spin studio into a circle, rather than ‘theatre style’. I’m not sure if I like that - it’s bad enough looking at my reflection in the mirror, but watching someone else suffer . . . though fortunately there were only 8 in the class, so things weren’t at all crowded. I’d forgotten how much fun spin can be - not to mention how much hard work. By the end of it I was feeling pretty burned, so maybe I am actually ill, and it’s not just man-flu!
