The workout had just started and we were beginning our first set of standing sprints (about 10 minutes into the 90 minute workout) and I hear a big BANG and my peddles stopped moving. #$@&(*$@*(!! I sat down and slowly started spinning again but right away the pedals got stuck and another bang. I check around and everyone agreed the bike was beyond a quick repair. I was sooo mad! I was really looking forward to the workout. Sam offered me his bike because he knew how much I wanted the workout but I declined and walked out of the class. I was so upset at the time that I wanted to scream. I wanted to smash it like the Hulk.
But I couldn't. So what did I do? I cried. Yep. I started crying and just could. Not. Stop. Luckily I managed to get out of the class and away from everyone else before the water works started. It was really ridiculous and embarrassing. I went down to the locker room and had myself a little pity party (similar to my pity party for one back in April, what is it with me and bikes?). I came out to go find a plain old stationary bike and I saw Sam in the lobby. It turned out that his bike broke about 5 minutes later! What are the chances of that?!?! I was too angry to do anything else so we got our stuff and headed home. It took me a good part of the afternoon and a nap to snap out my funk - the skies finally started to clear after a big bag of tortilla chips :)
I emailed the coach to give him a heads up with what happened - I didn't want him to think we walked out on the workout and I also wanted to be sure the bikes were reported so nobody else tried to use them. He wrote me back and it turns out a third bike broke in the same workout! So, 3 of 20 bikes busted in one class. They are all new bikes so I can't imagine how this happened!
Twenty-four hours later and I have no idea why I got so worked up about it. Shit happens right? I'm just looking forward to going back on Wednesday and getting that last attempt off my radar!
I hope you all have an amazing week!
