Trainer Workouts

Last night, I did an awesome trainer workout that my coach provided to me with my new training plan.

Well, I tried to do the workout, anyway.  It was HARD and I sort of failed at the last part.  But I’ll get there.

What did I learn from this?  Riding on the trainer or on a stationary bike can be so much more than just pedaling fast or… less fast for a set period of time.  That was exactly what I had been doing.  Occasionally I would try to pedal faster or slower, but I really didn’t know what I was doing.  I was getting sweaty, so it had to be a good workout, right?

I’m sure it was, but a planned trainer workout is so much better!

Anyone who has been to a spin class has probably figured this out, but I’m slow on the uptake.

A quick search on Google for “bike trainer workouts” comes up with a ton of different workouts, and you don’t just have to do them in the trainer.  You can do them on the stationary bike in the gym.  I definitely felt my muscles working and left a gross puddle on the mat underneath my trainer.  And yes, I did still have the TV on for added distraction, but it was still one of the toughest bike workouts I’ve done in a long time.

Of course, now I fear what else my coach has in store for me!
