First class

On Friday morning I taught my first Spin class! I was asked to sub the 10:00-10:45am class and it went well! I was so nervous, but I don’t think any of the people attending the class knew it was my first time.

I went hard with organizing the workout and music…

I kept my little workout guide on top of my handlebars for the whole ride. Fun stuff.

Also, I found out when I will be teaching:

Other things I did on Friday…

  • Dressed like a normal person to meet up with my friend to get coffee.
  • Cooked a special dinner of fish + baked potatoes + asparagus for Jimmy and I to feast upon.

Saturday consisted of..

  • Baking a raspberry trifle for a church lunch
  • Attending a church lunch
  • Taking Lola for a walk
  • Going out to dinner with Jimmy 
  • Going to the Pittsburgh Home & Garden Show
