Sunday I spent an hour on the trainer doing the Spinervals Recharge workout. It’s designed to get the legs spinning after a tough day on the bike. Saturday more than qualified as TOUGH! This particular workout felt good, even if it did have me sweating bullets! Oh wait.. I must have been glowing, of course!
Monday, I planned to take a spin / trainer class at Acme Bicycle Co. Unfortunately, due to their rough training in LaGrange this weekend and an unexpected personal obligation for the trainer, the class was canceled. No worries; my legs were thanking them for the rest. Moving right along and tonight I was able to attend the class. WOW! Carl is the Wednesday night instructor, and he was great. The class is relatively small. Most of us bring our bikes, with a few also lugging their trainers along. The convenient thing about Acme is that they have quite a few trainers available (for only $5 per session) for use, if needed. Today’s workout was focused on pushing the lactate threshold. I think the Spinerval workouts have benefitted me because I did much better than I expected. It’s about time, right?
So, I first heard of these classes from a co-worker who’s a member of Team Acme. I joined the team, and once the ConocoPhillips training rides have ended, I’ll now have a team to ride with. Yay! I met some really nice people and can’t wait until Monday night when we train again.
Hope everyone out there is doing well!
One thought on “Cool Stuff!”
Judi, great job on the cycling and spinning. I am in the middle of recovering from a nasty left shin splint that has put my running on the back burner until April and have been doing some cycling and elliptical stuff. By the way, I’m down in the Clear Lake area, and this weather right now is fantastic for getting out on the road.If you get a chance, please visit my running web site, Faithful Soles.

Thanks and continued good luck in your cycling, running and training.
