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!
