Spin Instead of Run

Got me this new bike trainer this weekend and decided to finally put it to use. Since I had a hard time getting out to run today, this was the next best thing. I just had to kick up the intensity. Once on there with my iPod, I knew I was going to have a great workout. After 10 minutes of a mildly high-intensity warmup, I did a Tabata set. I must say that riding an actual bike, even on a trainer, is much more different and lots better than a stationary gym bike. Seven more minutes of big-gear high cadence, then another set of intervals. After cooling down for 5 minutes and dismounted, I felt lightheaded. That was excellent :-) I'm looking forward to the Queens Biathlon.
