Winter Training Location for Tillie Ride Riders!

With a forecast of snow, the Tillie Ride team moves conditioning indoors…

Where else to do our training but the good ole YMCA?

I have taken four spinning classes so far. It’s a wild workout where you can simulate hills and build endurance by increasing resistance on a stationary bicycle. One of my favorite high-energy teachers is Laura Karston. In addition to being very encouraging, she entertains us with stories about her new Exercise Barbie.

After class--note the redness of my face compared to Laura's

If anyone has any recommendations about how to distract yourself from the pain of climbing a hill that lasts for the entire Journey song, “Don’t Stop Believing,” I’d like to hear them.
