Spin Class Victory!


When it comes to the kitchen, laundry, grocery shopping, or any other domestic talent... It's safe to say that I know more than Chad, but when it comes to the Gym or exercising- it is his domain and he is the expert. I admitted it... Chad knows WAY more than I do on the entire subject, always has and I suspect always will (or at least he always should because he is getting his PHD in it at the moment)
Well today I convinced Chad to attend his very first spin class after a few years of nagging. He's always rolling his eyes at my "classes", but after hearing me say what a butt kicker spin is, and after I told him that other guys go to it, he caved in a gave it a whirl. On our way there early this morning I mentioned to him that I'd help him get his bike set up correctly before we started class so he'd have a more comfortable ride. He looked at me with an annoyed expression and said..."I know how to fit myself to a bike"...har har har...
So we got to the class and we set up our bikes, I watched Chad fidget with his bike (knowing that it wasn't set up right) and then get on. Our instructor, Mike, asked if anyone was new to spin, Chad reluctantly raised his hand and I could tell he was just cringing as he came and had him dis-mount his bike so he could fit it properly. It was such a great "I Told You So" moment for me and the only "trust me...I know what I'm doing" moment that I've ever had at the Gym and probably ever will have!
Sweet victory!

Love it!! We miss you guys- the girls were mad at me when they found out you had already moved and we never got down to say good-bye. Sorry about that- they will miss Britcher :) and "their" Rachel and Chad because my kids own everyone they know.

Excellent! I always feel like such a dork trying to fit my bike to myself in those classes. Now I feel like less of a dork. Thanks, Chad!

Chad, just going to the class was your first mistake. I ride to work every day but spin kills me. I have only done it once and that was enough. The woman instructor kicked my trash. Hey I need to talk to both of you two. I'll call you in the next day or so.
