LTF Indoor Triathlon part 2: I spun and I milled!
Gatorade and water in hand I ran up the stairs to the cycle studio, and found a bike. Music was blaring and the heat before mine was halfway thru their 30 min cycle. Teresa, a friend from my Beginner's Master's Swim, was on her bike pumping away. I gave her a thumbs up and cheered as I clambered onto my chosen bike (I had to pick the one with the biggest foot straps since I have ginormous duck feet, I didn't want my foot popping free, like it did the first time I tried a spin class). The volunteers were awesome and got my seat adjusted to the right height, and I sett up my water and Gatorade and I was ready to go. I started slowly biking, and we had 30 seconds til it was time. Before I knew it they shouted GO! and I started spinning as fast as I can, which is pretty fast considering that there was no resistance! That felt weird, but the object was to go the farthest as possible so they jack down the resistance to nothing. I cam to regret that, but I will tell you that later.
Here's a pic of me on the bike:
Chafing aside I pushed hard at the bike, averaging about 29-30mph (no way I could do that in real life). I got another pic snapped at me with about 5 minutes left:
|So fast, my legs are a blur...|
|Still smiling....before I realized the chafing LOL!|
