So, today I was up early to take my little guy to hockey practice. I was away last weekend when there was 7am hockey both days, so it was my turn to get up and take the little guy to his 8:15 am practice today. I was okay with this, since I don’t seem to be able to sleep in anyways.
After practice, I was meeting my sister at her gym (GoodLife) to go to an RPM class with her. She is a certified Body Attack instructor and a couple of weeks ago, took an RPM spin class to just change it up a bit. Well…she loved it. She wants to get certified in RPM next, so she is going to a few classes, and today she convinced me to try it with her.
Well, holy cow! RPM was OMG! This was a killer workout. My legs were burning, my heart rate was through the roof, and I left a puddle of sweat under my bike. There were a couple of times when I thought I might lose my cookies. I was so thirsty, but had to wait to take a drink of my water to be sure It wouldn’t come right back up!
I survived the class, but was so tired after it. I came home and hopped into bed for a little lie down, sweaty clothes and all.
About an hour later, I woke up with the biggest headache and felt nauseous. Unfortunately that feeling has lasted all day. I was hoping it would go away, but even after another nap when we got home from my other son’s hockey game, I am still feeling less than 100%. I doubt that it was the RPM class that made me feel so crappy, but I didn’t feel like this before the class.
I think tomorrow I might be feeling the RPM aftereffects in a different way….my butt is starting to hurt from the bike seat and I’m pretty sure my legs will be a bit achy…at least I sure hope they are!
Since I spent most of the day either watching hockey, or lying in bed trying not to throw up, I didn’t get any menu planning done or groceries bought. This should make for an interesting food week. Hopefully tomorrow during my lunch hour I can plan out our menu and make a grocery list. I’ve got a massage tomorrow night at 7pm…hopefully I can hit the grocery store after that and get things organized for the upcoming week.
Have you tried RPM? Did your first class leave you feeling like a bag of ass?
Got any good, clean recipes I can add to my menu for the week?
