Back to spinnin

A one man workout. Trying to get on the trainer at least 3-4 times a week for 1 hour a a time. I've been using the Time-Trial, Criterium and Mt. Bike Carmichael videos. Anyone have the others? Climbing and Road Race? Will use the Tour De France 12 hour DVD set to do some of the sessions with. Will keep you posted on how that works out.

Do you prefer the trainer as opposed to classes at the gym? I have been contemplating buying a trainer for awhile...just curious.

I like having the trainer because i can hop on it anytime I want. Classes are fun but they are scheduled.

I have only done a few trainer rides, preferring the Y, even if it's just out in the general area instead of the spin room, than the confined space of my apt. But, more than either, I prefer going outside if at all possible.

You're tough Adrian. How the raquet ball going these days?

I have a winter goal of no trainer rides-I've been successful so far. Those days I can't get out on the bike, I run on the treadmill (not too fun). 3-4x/week on the trainer will have you ready for Spring Adrian!

I've been doing the trainer pretty regularly (well, since the new year). I can see why people hate the monotony of them. But I've come to like the freedom from the cold and slush of outside. Also you get a "better" workout in 1hr than outdoors because you're always pedaling (people usually say time on the trainer is about 1.5x the time outside).

I also have some Spinervals DVDs if anyone would like to borrow them. I will say they are pretty intense, which is a good thing if you want a good workout, but a bad thing if you're rebuilding your fitness.

And it gives me an excuse to wear spandex more often around my apt, and that's always a good thing.

Whats wrong with spandex Nicol? I wear spandex every night - to watch tv, go get the mail...etc.

nicol said...

Your neighbors must think you're some kind of superhero when you go get the mail! Do you wear the wig, nose and bowtie too...I mean, like, outside, with the spandex?
