Tried both of these for the first time last week.
RPM was great, and I kept up with the rest of the class, which made me feel good. The instructor had told me to go pretty easy my first class, and that helped. Afterwards we talked for about 20 minutes, and I got some great tips from her.
I hadn't been on the bikes for about 2 months, and even then it was just for 15 or 20 minutes, not a full 50. So that night and the next day, even the day after, I had a sore... seat region.
By that, I don't just mean my butt.
I think I bruised my labia.
No, really! It HURT. Boyfriend was all up in my bidness, and I had to back off, because that whole 'bike seat' area hurt like bejesus. And it was like that for two days. The third day, I just dealt with it, though the pain was still there. Fucking bloody fucking. Has that happened to anyone else? And ye gods, what's the boy equivalent?
Was great. I felt like a tool, as is normal for a first-time class, but I was a lot less dicky on some things than a few of the veterans, which was good to see. It was 'harder' than the raja yoga I've tried a few times, so I liked that about it.
So now I have to make time to incorporate both in my regime. Good good.
