Happy Monday, friends.
I learned one important piece of information about both spinning and my pregnancy this last week during Spinzilla. Wheel spinning is a great exercise for your pelvic floor. I like to point out that spinning works muscles we don’t even know exist and this is a prime example. This is one I didn’t notice until now. It also explains why kegels seem ineffective to me; I’ve already been developing those muscles.
I’ve been limiting myself on spinning, because it was making me sore and I was afraid I was overdoing it. However, I think I’m going to try to continue wheel spinning during the third trimester — after talking to my doctor, of course.
Spinzilla went well and I feel very accomplished. I spun 5518 Spinzilla yards and turned 32 oz of stash into yarn. This is more than I thought I’d manage, by a long shot. My initial goal was to spin for 2 hours a day, but with lots of short breaks. Not bad since I’m spinning for two!
I also got the chance to spin with my best friend, who lives in another city. Win-win-win all around.
