  • 30 walking lunges (15 each leg)
  • It would be lovely if a 2+ mile walk or jog accompanied this.


Let’s talk about the virtues of a spinning class.

You will need 4 days of cardiovascular training for the rest of your days. See soon to be posted Components of Health entry or you are already privvy to this information from your Younger Next Year book.

Take the hassle out of even having to think about your cardiovascular days and hit a spin class. If you have joint problems cycling is probably going to work for you. I can attest that the 5:45 am spin at LA Fitness in St Petersburg is a phenomenonal class. That gym is brand spanking new and also has a pool, which is nice.

Spin will have you sweating, but you can go at your own pace. Dip a toe in so to speak.

So get ready to take a spin class next week. There are also places that just do spin without the whole gym deal. If that flips your trigger. We will be doing some weight training twice a week so you may want a gym membership if you don’t have one currently. Also, when there are rainy days like yesterday you always have a plan B.

Wear comfortable gym clothing. Make sure the girls are harnessed in well; gym shoes are fine for now. Bring a towel (really you will need it) and two water bottles or one really big one.

The instructor will take care of the rest. Be ready to spin twice next week!  Here’s a little something for the girls.  It will inspire you to spin….

Go Lancette!
