I am a road runner and just started to train for my next half marathon in Mach. I started to do 3 spinning classes a week. The classes are great lasting about 45 minutes with a good mixture of interval work which get the heart and lungs pumping and some good hill work which means you have loads of resistance on and you have to work really hard.
My questions is: Does spinning have any benefit to my running or am I waisting my time in the gym where I could have been pounding the road?
Also be very interested in hearing others thoughts on this form of excercise if you do it!
Thanks Timi, good luck with your marathon. I have been training with my water bladder, also have a running belt. So wasn't sure which way to go...I think I might also go for the belt...who needs the extra weight of the bladder hey!
I have just spend a fortune on a pair of Asics Ladies Gel Kayano 17. I do half marathons ect, my normal shoe is a 5 and was advice by the shop assistant at Runners Need to go up to a 6.5. These shoes felt big from word go but he insisted it's the best way to go....same reason's than you gave. I am running a half marathon on Sunday and I am not happy with my trainers. No don't worry not going to go get a new pair but I am considering getting another pair after as I have another half marathon in May. Just anoying finding the right trainers.
