I figured some of you guys might be in the same boat, so I decided to pass along to you guys what the instructor told me. I hope you find it helpful!
Place one foot on top of the overturned pedal (so that the foot cage is on the bottom of the pedal) and rotate the pedal until it is at the bottom. Your leg should be almost straight with just the slightest bend.
Flip over the pedals and put your feet into the foot cages. Then rotate the pedals so that your feet are at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock (both feet are at the same height off of the floor). The front of your knee should be directly above the middle of the pedal. If you are unsure, have a friend check if they line up.
The handlebars should be at just about the same height as your seat or a little higher if that is more comfortable.
If you are still not sure if your position is correct, ask your spin instructor to give you a hand. They are always more than happy to help!
Later on that day I went out to run some errands. I ended up scoring some great deals at Old Navy and later at the thrift store! I found an old Moosewood cookbook from the 80's and another one written by Mollie Katzen, who founded the Moosewood Restaurant and wrote their original cookbook. Moosewood always has the most amazing vegetarian recipes, so I can't wait to browse through these!
I also found books on triathalons and running (to help me come up with some training plans for racing this year) and Jillian Michael's Making the Cut. They were only $4 each, so I figured why not?
I'm excited to start signing up for some races for this spring/summer! I definitely want to do a 5K and 10K, and hopefully a triathalon too.
Do you like spin class? Did someone teach you how to set up your bike?
Do you ever go thrifting? Have you ever had a lucky find at a thrift store?
Do you have any upcoming races? Any that you're planning on signing up for?
