Things I Wish I Had Known Before Spinning

This week I branched out and joined a spinning class. Usually I hate group exercise - the instructors screech, the music is annoying, people smell... and I'm a cranky old lady SO GET OFF MY LAWN.
It must be said though that I actually had a good time. The class was lead by a non-gym bunny and she turned the lights down low for a sweaty, romantic vibe. It worked.

Two things I wish someone had told me:
1. Run shorts are entirely too short for spinning. Your excess lady parts will rub in a most unpleasant manner.
2. You will lose your own body weight in sweat. Seriously, I have never been this soaked.
Also, I forgot to bring a water bottle, leaving me with the rankest of pasty mouths. Apologies to the guy beside me for my unforgiveable mouth breathing.

    Every now and then when I've been remiss with laundry and I'm left with only running shorts ... regret within 60 seconds.

    So, will you go back?

  2. I've been back twice!! I may be hooked.

  3. That sounds fun! I think...
