I usually sleep like a log, but after a swim session always find it a bit more unsettled.  Is it just me?

Will how do you get on not having your bike with you all week, is the spin bike a good replacement? what about gym bikes, are they worth using or is it better to just replace with extra run sessions?I only ask as i have a few weeks away with work in the next month

I used to use a hotel gym bike with one of Chrissie W's AudioFuel sessions. Got me through endless hotel stays.

3:31 am: can't sleep... Going to be short of a swim session this weekas going away with work and the swimming pool in the hotel is only 14 meters. Ironcat 5 Should I spin on a gym bike instead? If so for how long? Or should I get in a cheeky QC?

Tired Badger: I never have a y problems sleeping after a swim session (says being awake in the middle of the night!) - although last night it was a 75 min cycle home session.

Gym bikes are the low of the low - so only i use if i have now other option (it is better than nothing ... just)

I normally use a spin bike. they are much more adjustable, so i can get it set up so it feels like at least one of my road bikes. and if it has a good weight on the fly wheel, the feel can also be ok.

They key is to make sure you work (speed speed & Tension) . I use a range of training videos (Les Mills RPM, Sufferfest, Spinnervals) ... Iv'e been known to do up to 5 hrs on a spin bike (Needs Must)

I was often moving sessions to fit in with travel, though if my plan said bike, I biked. Sometimes I the QC and 15min Z2 run off the hour bike and did the 45 inute bike another day.

Use the pool - do some kick work without pushing off, diagonally?

* whispers *  think the virus is finally buggering off chest feeling lighter, and breathing easier.  at long bleedin' last.

spa evening for me so will try some swimming (even if it is slow 'old lady head out of the water breaststroke')  and see how it goes  - am feeling much much better mentally today, as I can see light at the end of the training tunnel

Well, yes, it's buggered off all the way up to Scotland .  Headache, sore throat, runny nose, and feel knackered.  Am resting today.

Good news Fraggle

Bad new Nurse R

And it appears to be in the USA as well! Sore throat, runny nose, feeling achy, and the best part is an oozing right eye.  Suffered through my group swim this morning but paid no attention to time and didn't even turn on my Garmin.  Just focused on technique.
