RE: Atheists who work out
I did spin class again yesterday with proper bicycle shorts, and it makes a WORLD of difference. For one thing, I butt doesn't hurt every time I sit down today even though the AM class was an hour instead of 45 minutes the first time. Thumbsup

My feet still hurt even though I switched to cross trainers, but it took a lot longer for the pain to kick in. Looks like I'll have to upgrade to cycle shoes with cleats that lock into the pedals next. That'll also help engage more muscles because even with toe clips on the pedals, it's still mostly pushing down - you can't pull much without your foot coming free, and I had to hold back on some of the sprints for the same reason.

Overall though, I think I like it. It's certainly more fun than an hour on the treadmill staring at me staring back at myself in the the gym mirror. Hobo

Sounds fun! I haven't tried spinning yet, but several of my friends swear by it.

I tried it. It's OK I guess. Not something I'd do by choice.

Seems like it would be a great cardio workout. I prefer to do my cardio outdoors running or hiking, but I live in CA and can do that year round. Once I move I'm going to have to figure out some other ways to get some cardio in the winter since Maine gets hit pretty hard with snow.

It is fun! I used to do a lot of cycling when I was in high school, so it kind of takes me back. When summer gets here I might need to get a real bike and get out on the road again. Yes

I guess that's why they say "to each their own." I haven't tried a marathon but after two 5Ks, I'm pretty sure I never will. Like Gimli, I'm a natural sprinter, very dangerous over short distances. Tongue
