Good luck, Dr Dan. I think a couple of cycles this to break up more routine mileage, can do you no harm.

Id run, Andrew as a short recovery run. That should help the healing process.

I was quite surprised to weigh in today at 10,13 as I seem to have maintained my carb load.

Ah...ours have digital displays giving you all the vital stats.

Ha, yes that would be a more realistic back story.

Yes, worth taking a hand towel. You didn't do it right then, which I why I suggested that Skinny might want to try it a few times.

I regularly walk out of spin having been pushed to vomit stage.

It depends on quality of bike as well. As I'm in a David Lloyd we have pretty high spec bikes. Other gyms I've been to are far lower quality.

I did consider giving you hr detail, but then realised it was pointless. I am spinning lunchtime. My gym has introduced 'sufferfest' which based on the one class I tried in March, is spin plus. Its virtual instruction in that a screen comes down and you are given this dialogue about for eg you are a former champion, gone to the dogs and are submerged into a leg of the you de France and instructions come up telling you when to attack etc. With spin you get a small break after each track but sufferfest is non stop. I've tried the hill class, today is the speed class.

You can use them on a turbo as well. Worth a google if you like that sort of thing.

Re what happens, if its 45 mins you will have about 8-9 tracks. First two will be warm up and last one cool down so its about 33 mins of work. You'll have a mix of sprint tracks, gradual climbing tracks, lighter climbing but higher paced attack tracks, mixed tracks, steady endurance. You should identify three core gears and work around them-

Base- easy light recovery.
Sprint - a couple of gears higherwhere you can sprint for up to two mins.
Attack/entry climb - a gear out of your seat standing that is an effort but you can attack for a minute or two.

In our gym that would roughly be gears 10, 12 and 18. You should then be able to understand where you should be above or below those gears.

Good going, Bob. Looks like you'll be back up there soon.

Look forward to hearing what Tommy did.

I thought mark would have peaked a couple of years ago. That's a hell of a time to post. You wonder what he could do if he was 10 years younger!

Velloo, my physio thinks every problem stems from the feet so its interesting to hear of a complete opposite view.

Skinny, a good instructor should talk you through the class either with gear and rpm range for each track or rpe scale. You may find that it's your leg strength that dictates what you can do more than your cardio as you wont be used to cycling in that way. When I spin I tend to work on the lower gear range but higher rpm as I want to ease my legs and save them for the running but work my cardio system higher. You might need to do it 5-6 times to work it out and properly hit it.

My conversion is pretty roughly 5k x 2 plus 1 min. You should be able to go sub 40, even if your 5k is a stronger distance. You might get found out a bit more trying to convert up to a half, but 10k you should be fine.

8 easy miles today, albeit legs felt really heavy.

Lit, the internet says this is on 25th May?

Good luck tomorrow, Tommy. Its the local 10k Sunday for me so a few hilly runs this week at easy.
