Good morning! It’s going to be an absolutely GORGEOUS week! Which, makes it all the more difficult to force myself to “rest” :(. While I can report that I am making progress toward recovery since I strained my calf muscle, my lower leg and ankle are pretty swollen this morning, sore, and I am still not fully walking.
This morning, I perched myself up on the spin bike and barked out the drills, instead of actually participating and going through the workout with the class. I used the music to set the pace and keep class going. Thankfully, I had the timing down and people were still breaking a sweat.
Today’s workout was inspired by The Dancing Runner:
Slowly increase resistance for 2 minutes, then 2 minutes out of the saddle double time
Jumps- out of the saddle & back over the seat
BIG climb! Near max in the saddle, then bring it up to finish out, continuing to climb
30 second sprints in the saddle
Easy spin for 1 1/2 minutes, add in jumps in and out of the saddle
Flat road/easy spin for 1 minute, slow and steady climb, don’t slow down!
Sprints in and out of the saddle
