Spin instead of long run

1 week of snow and ice and I haven’t done any running for myself. (I took Audrey out coaching on Thursday night and found a clear bit of ground to do 1 min reps on)…

I was going to wait and see what the weather and ice was doing this weekend and I might have ventured out for my 17 mile run if the ice was cleared… but it isn’t, so I’m not risking it. I’ve seen runners out and I don’t fancy it.

I decided I’d do a 46 minute spin session instead. Not exactly 17 miles running, by a good cardio workout. I’ve done three Strength sessions this week, and the caching on Thursday, so I’m sure I’ll be able to pick up my running just fine next week once the snow is gone.

Here’s the spin session I created (in my Seconds app):

3 rounds of the above, with a 5 minute warm up and a 5 minute cool down, make 46 minutes and a rather sweaty Lorn. 😜

I have to say I nearly jacked it in about half an hour in, but I managed to hang on in there to do it.

My avg HR was 142, max 165 and a garmin Training Effect of 3.3, so a good wee session for a Sunday morning.

I aim to either do a long run early in the week and another at the weekend, or just start up my running again on Tuesday – 3 runs a week, 2 Strength, 2 Rest days.

The garagym was pretty chilly at about 3’C but I soon warmed up into a sweat. Nice view (but not quite outside 😜).
