Back on turbo yesterday - metronome app on phone to keep 100 RPM pace, then one page of Holg's book, then count 25 (1 min) before I turn to next page. 45 min spin session done! Back in pool today and brick sesh later - all is well. I'll be glad when the Christmas food has gone, though
A metronome app!! Eureka!
Man, I love this site. Yes, you guessed it. I've been manually counting my RPMs but swiftly losing count after about 25 when the chorus of Def Leppard's 'Pour some sugar on me' kicks in.
A metronome App may help but you dont need to count for a whole minute, I used to count 15 seconds worth then multiply by four before I got a bike computer that displays the RPM.
right been waiting all morning for eldest to go out so i can go swimming.now he's gone I'm finding it hard to shove myself out the door..................
I hate pool swimming
and its free swimming for kids so i wonder how many will be there on a wet friday betwen christmas and new year
Well been in France for the pass week, took our bikes and then we're both ill, so trainings been a bit buggered.
Will get on the turbo tonight and go for a swim tomorrow and try and get back on plan next week.
Hope all is well with everyone else, diito about the booze, think I've drunk enough to sink a battle ship (husbands theory anyway).
Red dog.our pool never puts lanes in so its a free for all..............a lot of kids in the pool but to be fair they were much better behaved than the pensioners who normally are in the pool in the day......
funny how training works..had to drag myself to the pool.......promised myself that i could come out after 30 mins.then told myself to do another 10 and ended up swimming for the full hour...........
managed to do the 100 lengths for the first time ever in the hour...2500k...........maybe because i hadn't done any other training earlier today or maybe just because you get faster by swimming more
anyway so chuffed to be able to tick the sessions off
glad to see you are back in action EP....
After a promising start this week (4) has been blown apart by "yuletide felicitations". Managed both swim sessions on the wrong days and a boxing day ride and a run today before work. Even had to reverse the weekend as riding doesnt look fun tomorrow so will try and run in the wind and rain and ride on sunday.
Most people sound like they have adjusted accordingly. Back to nearly normal next week.
Seren... pool swimming with no lanes? I couldn't cope with that. Almost open water like. Well done on doing a full hour though.
New Garmin 800 for my birthday though. That'll help the bike miles tick over. Just trying to get to grips with Strava. Anyone else use that?
gits tried breaking into my shed for the bikes......luckily alarm sent them packing......all the bikes are now in my living room until tomorrow when we can get new bolts and padlocks etc for the shed............
Red Dog.I'm impressed..........I'm checking the forecast for tomorrow.............if it looks dry early then I'm going to get out on the bike.............
just did an hour run .. very wet........bathed and dry now so feeling better ... only got my long bike to do.......don't think I'm going to find a dry window to cycle in
quite warm here, just been for 2 hr run and was down to vest after 10 minutes. going for walk / run with my wife in a few minutes then a spin session later.
