In SoulCycle classes, I often struggled when everyone would run out of the saddle. It’s a learned movement, and during these parts of class, I would cautiously pedal, staying seated.
One day, my instructor quietly came down from the podium and began to set up an open bike next me on the front row. Her pedaling alongside me encouraged me, and I experienced the power of the other. I was able to run out of the saddle for the first time, and I have been doing so ever since.
