Tag Along with Tina – Back home again in cycling
We all have our favorite classes, the ones where we know exactly what to do and what to expect and we seem to gravitate towards these classes. The classes that we are most comfortable with. For me, this is Monday night cycling with Amy. It may have something to do with the fact that she and I actually socialize a bit outside of class or that she has impeccable taste in music. Whatever it is I have taken cycling for the past two years. Now that includes a recent six month break so I knew going back wouldn’t be easy. The beauty of cycling for me is that my feet are strapped in to the pedals. I don’t have to worry about going left or right and I don’t have to keep my arms in rhythm with my legs. Now, don’t get me wrong, cycling isn’t easy and your behind hurts for a few weeks, but it is as challenging as you want it to be. Amy, like all of our instructors, helps you modify up or down depending upon your fitness level. I have noticed a very common thread amongst the classes that I have tried….just keep moving. If you can’t keep up just keep moving. There were times during the jumps that I skipped a few and didn’t increase my tension as much as some of the others were. This class teases with each other and gives Amy a hard time. They teased her about her taste in music and even went as far as calling her a music snob. I’m not sure what I like more about the class, the challenge it presents or the fact that the class has such a great rapport with each other. The biggest deal about taking this class is that I actually showed up. I had made plans to cycle with someone that wasn’t able to come. I made a few phone calls to other people and because it was so last minute it just didn’t happen. I tossed around the idea of just trying again next week when I could get someone to come with me but instead I put my big girl pants on and I went. I was actually more proud of showing up then the work that I did during the class. It was nice to be back “home” in cycling. Maybe all of these baby steps are starting to add up!
