Bored With Running? Try a Spin Class

Fitness Switchup: Indoor Cycling Instead of Running

If you used to love running and now the sight of your sneakers makes you want to hide, it is time to switch up your fitness routine. Cross training is a great way to beat boredom and overuse injuries.

If you're sick of pounding the pavement and running solo, try a group indoor cycling class for three reasons. One, biking balances out the legs, since it targets the quads, and running tends to work the hamstrings more. Strong quads will help prevent overuse injuries like runner's knee. Secondly, a group class situation is so different from solitary running. You don't have to motivate yourself and set paces; the instructor does that all for you. Lastly, biking is a joint-friendly form of cardio that will still get your heart pumping without banging your joints around.
