I saw an osteopath at the gym this week for free ( offering 10 minute sessions). He was quite an eccentric bloke but that aside his advice was useful. I told him that I am prone to achilles troubles and he suggested swopping one of my 4 runs a week for a spinning class!!
So I went this morning... my very first proper gym bunny assignment.
Here is a list of my findings:
Women were v v unfriendly and wore MAKE UP and their hair was COIFFURED?!!! I Dont get that, its only going to get really messed up.
Man called Paul was SOOO lovely. He adjusted all my parts so I was properly fitted and he smiled. He is officially my first gym 'friend'
The teacher was lush, she was really nice to me and checked me over ( all via her loudspeaker which was unnerving)
It was really good fun... lots of pushing, rising up from the saddle and twisting the knob to make it harder with v loud music ( not all to my taste but I loved the Frankie Goes to Hollywood track)
It was not hard at all and next time I will twist my knob alot harder to make it tough
I will most definately be back next week and I will try and find my new friend- and also know its helping my marathon training too
Happy spinning and panthering
