A Torpedo Gunboat On Manouvers With A Flottilla of TBDs

No new models, that's my metaphor to describe my first spin cycle class of the semester.  The class is filled with mostly fit 20-somethings plus yours truly and another one or two in the same decade of life.  I'm decidedly older, heavier, slower, crankier and more apt to run out of steam.  Really feeling the extra klics on the Oldometer!

However, it keeps the cholesterol down, the spare tire under control, boosts the immune system and strengthens the wonky knees - all good stuff.


  1. Good title, Peter. ;-)

    My wife and I joined a gym late last year, I did the spin classes faithfully for a few months but gradually slacked off to nothing. I ride outdoors 4-5 days a week though, so not much guilt.

    Spinning is great. Everyone tends to work to their own level anyway, so don't worry what the kids are doing.

    Good luck,

  2. I need to get my bike back out. Lots of nice hills to ride up and down.

    Haven't been on it since, well, the day I had my heart attack last year or more accurately, about 3 minutes before I had my heart attack last year.....
