Is Yoga training? I believe it is since it keeps me flexible and prevents injury. So add 1.25 hours of Yoga to the workout list 🙂 . Full class of about 30 people with all levels of ability – no beginners. Was really stiff since I haven’t done Yoga for about 1 week and been sitting on my duff too much.
Allright. Back in action. Spinning for 60 minutes today broken up into 30 minutes of 90 rpm setting 14, and 30 minutes at setting 15 broken up twice with 2 minutes of standing climb at setting 19 with 65 rpm. I hate standing climbs so I am proud of myself today that I did 4 minutes in total. Plus I suck at them which is another disadvantage.
Not feeling well today, my first chance to spin or yoga since Wednesday. Most disappointing.
So I’m going to write about what goals are since I’ve started down this cycling/spinning route. My initial plan is/was to do RAW in 2016 and RAAM in 2017. Since I have no experience, as in zero, none, with bike racing or endurance cycling I have no idea if that’s a realistic plan or not. I’m in good shape overall so I expect it to be doable. If not, I will try some other qualifier for RAAM in 2016. If all else fails, “There’s always next year.”
First RAW training post!
Rode spinning bike for one hour. The first 45 minutes were tough after yesterday’s 80 minute spin that included a one hour class. This first week of extended spins that are one+ hours per day is tough but getting better.
