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)!

Step and Spin

Taught early morning (too early) 7:30AM step today at Stonestown YMCA. I tried a new combo, one that I've been formulating in my head for the past six weeks. I modified it at the last minute because there were some newbies in class and I didn't want to freak them out.

Things went fine except for the high humidity/heat situation because the air conditioning didn't seem to be working. I felt a tad sluggish and wasn't as peppy as usual. Surprisingly, several participants came up to me afterwards saying that they really enjoyed my class. That's always nice to hear.

Afterwards, I took the 8:30AM cycling class but felt completely drained and lacked energy. At the end of class, I had trouble unclipping my left foot (as usual) so I removed my foot from the shoe (it was still attached to the bike) and got off the bike. As I continued wrestling with my shoe, the guy behind me offered to help, and as he twisted my shoe it flew out of his hands and hit the lady next to me. In the face. The instructor ran to get some ice, and I went outside with this poor lady to make sure she was okay.

I apologized for the accident even thought it was the dude who was responsible for the flying shoe (I wasn't touching it when it happened). I'm disappointed that he didn't fess up and admit that it was his fault. Grr.
