This section of my website used to be dedicated to triathlon training, personal race results and certification reviews, like Turbo Kick. I am expanding it to include more generic health & fitness topics. Also, I talk a lot about "D" -- he's my husband (Dave Liu)!

Spinning with Dino

At Laura's suggestion, I went to the El Camino YMCA (Mountain View, CA) to try out Dino's Wednesday 7:15PM spinning class. They have Star Trac bikes which are great for short people like me. Laura mentioned something about the class being 1.5 hours long, but I thought that she was joking. She wasn't.

I was drenched with sweat after 60 minutes, but Dino showed absolutely no signs of stopping. That's when I realized that I had another 30 minutes of cruel and unusual punishment headed my way! Joking aside, it was a superb workout. Dino's a great instructor and provided fantastic safety cues and motivation throughout. I'm glad to see that he occasionally got off his bike to check on everybody which I thought was responsible. Unfortunately, the class conflicts with Wed PM track training at Kezar so I'll have to figure something out.
