Back to school, back to school to prove to Dad that I am not a fool. My lunch is packed and I am ready to go I hope my grades don't fall low?
Well I tried. First week of classes is almost offically over!! I managed to somewhat stay on task this week with some solid training including some rides in the valley, nice runs, lots of conditioning from soccer, and this morning I returned back to SRWC to instruct my morning spinning class.
This week all group instructor classes were free to all KSU Student to promote the programs/services that can be provided. It was quite the turnout, 16 spinners showed up at8am and demanded a workout and a workout I gave them. There were no new students and all repeat spinners so I didn't hold back as much as I planned orginally.
