I forgot to share the best part about today.

While working out, I went to my first spinning class. As I spun, I noticed that my left pedal was getting a little jerky but figured I was doing something wrong, no big deal. As it got progressively jerkier I realized the bike pedal seemed to literally be spinning off, slowly, as if unbolting itself. Normally you would have been doing sit-stand combinations on the bike at that time in the class but I stopped standing once I realized that if the bike pedal fell off, I’d be landing on some very private areas. I just kept sitting and spinning. Good thing I did, because a minute later the left bike pedal fell COMPLETELY OFF. The instructor barely blinked, as if that was a common occurrence. Had I been standing on the bike when that happened, I’d be in a lot of pain right now. In fact I’d probably need some OT! (::warbles:: Sounds like…you need some O.T…)

Luckily the class was like 3 minutes from being over so I just stood there and waited for my friend to finish. I’m going to bring in a certified bike mechanic from now on to test my bike before I take a spinning class so I don’t ruin my OT career before I ever start it….just kidding.

The End.
