Crotch Bruising, Not Cool.

It's not really how it sounds, well it is, but it isn't.....

I have been a huge fan of spin classes since before the Munchkin was born. I did spin until I was more than 8 months pregnant with her, and finally had to stop because my belly was hitting the handle bars. I decided today to jump back in and check out this class at the gym. It kicked my ass (and crotch) and I loved it. The music was loud and I could feel the calories melting away. The only problem? I'm a wuss and used to always carry my padded seat with me to class. I'm too vain to wear the dumb little padded pants, and really? I'm taking this class to make my ass smaller, why would I want to wear something that makes it look big and cushy? Today, my trusty little padded seat wasn't even on my radar as I was loading the offspring into the car. All I could think about was being early so I could get a bike in the back.

So, as the evening has worn on, I've realized that I'm feeling the pain. It's not just in my ass, where you would think it would be, it's a full on crotch bruise. It hurts to sit, it hurts to cross my legs. All of this discomfort and I can't say it was the result of something more pleasurable. I know that's what you were thinking.... Dirty, dirty minds.

This is why I've always hated spinning. Even with a padded seat, I still felt like I'd been ridden hard and hung to dry.

And you spun (spinned?) until you were 8 months pregnant with your first? Holy crap woman! I barely walked to my mailbox at that time!

I'm so scared to try spinning...I'm afraid I won't make it through the class, I'm weak. Plus that whole crotch bruising doesn't sound much fun!

You are cracking me up! I used to do spin classes years ago when Mimi was young, and I went so far as to buy the ridiculous padded seat/biker shorts & they were hidious looking and for me, they didn't even do the trick. The crotch bruise is like no other. Eeeww, I just had a flash-back and now I'm frozen and afraid to move. I can't even comprehend spinning while prego! I'm totally impressed with your craziness.

Is it weird to say that I enjoyed the crotch bruise from spinning? Probably so.
