We were all sitting in the fitness suite this morning, on our Spinning Bikes – which had been put out at the last minute, and only after one of us had gone to tell the front desk, “Hey, our class starts in ten minutes and the bikes still aren’t out!” – when one of the guys from the centre comes in and I know, immediately, that the class isn’t going ahead.
“So Stephanie, your instructor, has had a bit of an accident,” he said.
Everybody else groaned.
“Is she okay?” I asked, and he nodded.
“She went over on her ankle, so she can’t take the class this morning. Normally, we have members of staff who can cover classes, but none of them are working today, and it’s too late for any of them to get in to cover, so the class won’t be going ahead today.”
It says a lot about my class that we didn’t all rush out immediately. We sat for a couple of minutes and bemoaned the fact that we wouldn’t have a class, and that we were glad Stephanie was okay, but damn, no class.
It’s not even like I could go into the gym. I’ve still got this tendinitis in my heel. Even Spinning’s getting damn painful. I want it to go away so I can get back to burning 2,500+ calories a week again.
So, I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get to have my usual awesome Sunday morning class. I’m pretty glad, however, that my mother wasn’t at work, so I didn’t have to waste almost £10 on taxis and NOT having a class, too. That would have been awful.
I really need to buy a bike so that I can cycle to my classes, I really do.
Anybody got a cycle they can send me? Or any idea where I can get £200-ish for a good bike?
