So Lady-Friend has off and created her own blog. She continues to post on it, despite my futile protests. So, out of spite and because I enjoy reading them, I’m reposting her rants, raves and admissions here at Vintonville.com– duplicate content be damned!
I am a runner through and through. I love to run. I love the runners high. I love hitting the streets/mountain trails– just me and the pavement/dirt. I hope I never have to give it up and I don’t think any other activity could replace just how awesome I feel after a good long run.
That said, I’ve been Spinning a lot lately. I take this spin class in the most ghetto gym in Cache valley (hey- it’s cheap and I don’t go to check out the quality of the place, People). I needed something besides just running because a switch-up is healthy and much easier on my body. When I first started going, the class was quiet and everyone talked about when they would be hitting the streets together (who knew there is a whole network of bikers here in Logan). I wanted and needed some umph!! I started hootin’ and screamin’ and telling the ladies to pick it up and that we could do it– mostly to keep me going but the ladies started to enjoy it.Now I’m the designated cheerleader.
Back to the point…I really enjoy spinning and it kicks my booty but I have a very valid and real fear:
I’m so afraid that if I keep spinning as much as I am my legs are going to look like this chicks [Ed: Chun Li from the Street Fighter video game series... yes, I knew that. No, I'm not embarrassed] Geewww! Can anyone offer any comfort? Do I need to find a new alternative? Nobody likes the thunder thighs! If I become a spinner am I destined to have thunder thighs?
P.S. The instructor seriously said the “P” word today…the whole thing…shouldn’t that word be off limits? I can’t stand that word! Anyone feel the same or am I over reacting?
