Spinning 'round and 'round

It's time to get down to business.

We now have a date for our next surgeon's appointment. November 10th is the official deadline for getting back in top shape. At that time, we'll either get the green or red light for a full return to sports.

Mireille took me to Spinning class tonight for the first time post-injury. She was really nervous about it for some reason and almost changed her mind at the very last minute. Funny.

"Where have you been?!", said the instructor.

Yikes. We haven't been slacking, I swear...

It turned out great, actually. New bikes, small group of unintimidating people. Couldn't ask for a better first class back. However, it took a while for Mireille to get up in 2nd and 3rd position. A mental block because I'm definitely strong enough for it.

It's all about confidence.


  1. Spinning is great for the knees (or so I'm told). I'm pretty sure you can go as hard as you want and nothing bad will happen (don't quote me on this though =))

    Good luck on your goal of Nov 10!!

  2. Yeah, it was surgeon recommended.

    Was worried I wouldn't be able to walk after class but it felt great!


  3. Glad you enjoyed it. Is spinning easy on the ankles? I have ankle problems, so that's why I ask.

  4. Hmmm, I would think it't ok. If outdoor biking doesn't aggravate your ankle, spinning shouldn't.
