On Monday I did this one....

35 Minute Cycle Training Workout - Hill Training The guy was better than the American It's not as good as the RealTV girl.  I know this because I did another of her videos today: Cycling Workout: Cycling Through The Sandstorm. I also have statistics!  Good for me! Not for you!

AVG7.4 mph176 bpm59.0 rpm
MIN0.7 mph115 bpm15.0 rpm
MAX21.0 mph198 bpm104.0 rpm

I don't have the mile splits so you're a little lucky.

Today I did this one...

Lose Yourself! In This 35-Min Cycling Workout which was a lot better than the previous one, in terms of 'tone.'  Almost like my old spin classes.  Still feeling shakey and sick but not as bad as yesterday.  Garry Garmin's stopped working.  He keeps freezing when I go into histories and comes up with an error about overlapping time.  Don't really have any idea what that's about so again no specs to bore you with.

Was it always this hard?..

I've just, quite literarly done the first turbo session of the year, and I feel sick.  Not the good, exilarated sick you feel, but shakey to scared to cough properly or I'll puke sick.  The why is it all going white and my diaphram objects by tensing up sick.  I used to enjoy this... did I really?

Basically the Gids is putting me to shame - kind of - he was out on his bike two days previous, just going to work and that, but since I'm kind of home bound at the moment and it's misty outside (or was when I started) I thought I best get my arse in gear.

So, the racer has been sitting in the spare room untouched to the point it had cobwebs on it (I know, I know bad Jakky).  I dusted it off and checked the tires, then since I've been 'HerInDoors' I perused YouTube and found this:Burn Fat Fast: 20 Minute Spin Class Workout and decided on it because it's 20 minutes so nice and short.  It's and interval workout.  I had to skip a couple of the intervals - by the end I was doing every second interval and the 'Good Job' Americanisms get you after a while - but I got a sweat on, a stitch and a bit sick so it did make me work harder.

Now I've made an amature error and not set up Garry Garmin properly, so I can't show you the statistics which aren't of interest to anyone but me, but trust me.  It did happen.

Off to vomit and lie down now.
(Did I really enjoy this at one point?)

I've been cycling I have...

... it was hell.  And the Brompton can't do sand.  At all.  Only went seven miles and it was so windy I ended up with the top layer of skin rubbed off my face.  So not only does cycling save you on bus fare but it also saves you on eighty quid beauty treatments.

Will start training soon for the Etape. I promise.
