Tonights spin session focussed on heart rate. Building our heart rate and keeping it high for an extended period of time, and then dropping it to a level that still results in a good workout. Up, down, up, down. This is the way we burn more calories and more fat.
All was great until she pulled out the dang gym towel. Those of us who knew what this meant sighed, and we were the first to get punished. The newbies were in for a real treat and had looks of confusion across their faces. Ha! Little did they know. What-do-ya-know... Stacy get's the towel. Why me? What does she do? She had us sprinting and then bam, she rubs the towel against our wheel to increase resistance.... and it seems as if she was never going to let it go! This would have been different if it weren't the end of our class. But she had to do it when we were close to exhaustion. But I must admit, it can be very motivating at times!
Tomorrow, if all goes as plans, I hope to get to the gym in the AM, that way I can work until late. Thursday I have a stupid training to go to in the morning which requires more work for me to prepare for a sub. I hate being gone.
