A New Endorphin Rush

I am a runner. I don't tend to stray from  running because in my small mind i think it's the best way to work out. I use to think there was no better endorphin rush then that. Then i had a baby without drugs,  now thats the BEST endorphin rush ever.

I am training for a 10 mile and a half marathon, so i have been running so much, i'm getting VERY board. So two nights ago i decided i would give spinning a go. It was unbelievable, probably the best work out i have ever had. Not only are your legs burning, but its FUN. I was sweating more then i ever have running and the intervals were killer. Don't get me wrong, i love running, but if you ever want to switch it up and burn more calories then anything else, try a spinning class.

I know this sounds gross, but literally i dripping sweat. My tank was wet. I was shocked. Since i liked how i felt two nights ago, i gave it a go again this morning. Different instructor and different workout, but the burn was awesome! We went up hill, down hill, fast with a lot tension and then slow with a LOT of tension. IT WAS AWESOME! Best part is i am gaining even more endurance for my runs. Maybe i'll try a triathlon next:)

I'm not going to get ahead of myself:)


  1. I'm glad you've found another fun workout for you! For me...not so much. I LOATHE spin class. I've tried at least 4 times and I think that's a fair shake. Not ever, ever going back!

  2. That is awesome for x-training!!! I bet you see your time shaved down on your runs!! I want to try it too!!!

  3. Yeah i hear it's a hate/love kind of workout:)

  4. I tried spin once and my butt was sore for days....other than that I thought it was great! :) Apparently not great enough to give it another try though!

  5. Seriously! I LOVE spinning! I'm working on getting certified to teach RIGHT NOW! I can't wait :)

  6. I might have to give spinning a try. It sounds great!
