Back to spinning

I think more spinning in the near future… Just a quick one today. We had a stand-in spinning instructor today, so the class was a little different. There was a very good music selection: it really got the class going. The class was mainly climbs with a few sprints thrown in. This instructor particularly likes […]

The treadmill and my shoes

Back to my ailments next… Two posts in one day- aren’t you guys lucky. Just a quick one about my actual treadmill exercise. This was just over an hour of work with a few rests: I varied the incline and the speed in order to shake up my usual routine. For example, I’d start at […]

Supersonic spinning?

Hopefully my leg improves… The leg seems to be fine, but then again I haven’t actually run on it. Loads of people at work seem to have contracted a cold, me included unfortunately so I decided to take Tuesday off, forgoing RPM (the instructor noted my absence today). I was planning on having another rest […]
