Today I went to the gym and got on a spinning bike for an hour. Excruciating. Two reasons--
1. I loosely followed a workout from my ironman training book. It had me doing repeats where I was just using one leg and letting the other just kind of spin along. How is riding a bike so hard for my right leg?! Then I did some "resistance" work--Apparently, I'm not as strong as the last time I spun bc the resistance was pretty lame!
2. One spot, no music, no incline or decline. Need I say more?
I will find other solutions and opportunities for good biking training, and I actually think today's workout was worthwhile, but if every weekday bike ride is spinning, I might go crazy!
