Spin, take 2

Last night I went to the spin class I bailed on last week and was rewarded by it only being 45 minutes instead of the usual hour. I hate hour spin classes...mental, but I do. Tonight is the core class, but it's going to be easy because Bea (the teacher and my former trainer, who whipped my ass into shape 2 1/2 years ago...I'd like to see a showdown between her and Jillian of the Biggest Loser) just texted me that she hurt her Achilles on a run and someone else was subbing. I asked if the sub was good. Her reply? "You should go...she tries..." I like not only being able to keep up with my usual classes while pregnant (so far), but more importantly with HER classes. People have a love/hate relationship with her style. Fit people love it. People who only think they are hate it, because she makes them realize they're not. And I can only imagine the next day or two after when they try to get out of bed. The first class I took with her, the next day I felt almost as bad as when I ran my first marathon...can't sit down because your quads give out on you bad.

Maybe I should go early and get in a short run first.

Doesn't it feel good to be fit and pregnant? I love it. You are doing great!

Nice job! I hate spin class for some reason. It's kind of like running on the treadmill for me - I look at the clock every 10 seconds. I'd rather be outside, I guess. That's the one thing that stinks about pregnancy to me...having limited exercise choices.

Thanks for the comment. I'm going to go to the medium shirts and all and bella bands soon. Mostly a boob problem! As far as the long runs being faster, I just get the urge to run fast after I've been running for a bit. If I'm running shorter I'll just truck along. It's weird. I don't think I'll be holding a fast pace in the 1/2 on sunday though. Are you ready for your 10k??
