Might have killed my arms...

This morning I decided to go to the first spinning class in awhile. It was a different class than I've ever been to before, but I decided to go because it was only 30 minutes (yup, I admit I'm a gym class slacker). I got to the gym a bit early so I started to do some of the great arm exercises you guys have been recommending. I did probably 15 minutes of all arm weights which is a huge amount of me since I rarely work my arms. Then I get to spinning and the instructor hands me a resistance band. Immediately I think uh oh. Uh oh was right...we did arm work almost the entire time (with spinning). It was great, except for I think it might have been a bit much for my arms. Tomorrow is parent conferences at my summer job so I am really looking forward to feeling extreme soreness while I am trying to explain the progress of my kids this summer, haha- oh well it will distract me at least. After tomorrow I am technically done with summer work, wooo! I still have a lot of private tutoring to do, but I will be taking a full week off in two weeks to spend some time at the Cape and go to 2 weddings :) Anyway, I will be without the internet this weekend in NH, so I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend and I'll catch up with you on Monday!


  1. Spinning and arm workout? Very interesting. Wish my gym would do something like that. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. OH wow, sounds like an intense class!! I'd be too much of a wimp to do it I bet, so good for you. I hope they aren't too too sore, but on a positive note sore arms mean muscle building!

    Have a good week :)

  3. Did you get 'dinosaur' arms? I learned about that term when I first started working my arms. You basically can't raise your arms above your head - hence the term, dinosaur arms!

  4. oh man i would love to know how those arms are feeling tonight/tomorrow! :) it's a good soreness though, in my weird crazy ways.

    have a good weekend!

  5. I've done spinning classes with resistance bands before - tough stuff! Hope your not TOO sore tomorrow!!!

  6. Oooh...spinning and arms. That is torture. But I bet you feel great (despite the pain)afterward.

  7. Hope you had a great weekend and that your arms are well rested now. :D
