Oh you know there’s a story behind a headline like that! I’ll get to that in a moment though.
So I made it through the first week of training and surprisingly – I feel great. I’m not really feeling as much of the pain and soreness as I did early in the week (I didn’t say at all… I just said not as much). Today we focused on cardio and the piece of equipment I loathe the most…. spinning.
Now before you go nuts! I didn’t say I hated biking – just spinning. Well more specifically, the evil bike seat that hurts my rear end. Nothing about that seat is comfortable. Did the creator really thinking making such a comfortable seat would give you a great work out? Why aren’t there fat people seats. My ass just eats that teeny-tiny seat alive!
Ok I’m done ranting. But seriously WHY!
The majority of our workout time today was in the spin room. We did sprints, hovers, standing, and all kinds of crazy things. My legs hurt, my foot fell asleep from the pedal and my ass… well I think you know what my ass thinks of the spin bike! For the record, it’s been over 4 hours since I left and my ass STILL hurts from that bike!
After spinning for about 45 minutes and burning a TON of calories, we headed to the gym to do some serious stretching and… well that’s where the story takes place.
So you have to picture my team – there are six of us. Three guys … all (estimating) older than me. Three girls (including myself) … all older than me (estimating). One of the gentleman who I am certain has a good few years of me… has the most epic quote of the day.
As we’re getting ready to lay on the mats for stretches, he demands that Jackson tell us the next time we’re going to spin so he can wear a thong. Apparently, he had the wedgie from hell and his “military undies” weren’t the best choice for the day.
I could not contain my laughter … neither could anyone else. I’m pretty sure I will never forget that moment! It was perfectly timed, brilliantly executed and he probably had no clue it would be so memorable. I’m still laughing about it!
I truly love my group though. We have a great group of people who I’m really enjoying getting to know. We encourage each other, we laugh and it’s really an amazing experience. I couldn’t have asked for a better team.
We’re off for two days now for the weekend and return on Monday. Jackson has instructed us to do “light cardio.” I haven’t figured out what I’ll do just yet, but since it’s going to be beautiful in Southwestern, PA this weekend I think a walk is in order. Maybe the pup and I will head out for some fun. If it dries out nicely, I might also take our daughter to the park – I think she’ll really enjoy that! She’s a kid – of course she’d enjoy it!
