I took up spinning about 2 months ago. Dr suggested it after my annual checkup as a way to get fitter and shed the spare tyre. It's a lot harder than it looked! 45 minutes with an instructor who's more like a drill sergeant. First session I did I thought I was going to cough up a lung at the end (yes, I really was that unfit). Two months later, I've lost most of the tyre, half a stone and don't feel too bad at end.

Up until my latest bout of pancreatitis caused by a blocked bile duct I had been drinking quite a lot of orange juice in a week - I knew all that sugar wasn't good for me - Yesterday I found an Apple Squash type drink in Aldi [ well , Jennie did ] and if you add diet lemonade it makes for a very refreshing drink similar to Appletise for a 50th of the price [ or whatever fraction it is ] , cheaper anyway .

:D best spinning instructors are drill sergeants for sure, combined with a great playlist! Good for you, keep it up, a good 45min spin session is great for body & mind.

I always have to mop the floor with my towel after, wring my socks & T shirt out, find a lung and take two minutes resting up on my bike to stop the blurred vision. Whole body is alive & cleansed after :thup:
