temps, that is. Betcha thought I was going to whine some more, didntcha? Well I'm not.
This morning it dipped below 70F for the first time since April or May. What's more remarkable is that I can't remember the last time this happened in September. Usually we stretch our patience out through the first week in October, then begin intense prayer until the first cold front arrives, usually toward the end of the month. Last year 'round this time, I was primed and ready for a really good marathon, and even went under 19:30 for 5k, and we had a heat wave. This year... oh well. I'm not whining.
The YMCA's been running a membership special this month, so I joined this morning. They have spin bikes there! And recumbents, which I don't like as much, and regular stationary bikes too. All provide a pretty safe way for me to get a good cardio workout without worrying about traffic or putting pressure on my leg. This morning I took a spin on all 3 kinds of bike:
recumbent: 15min wu, 80-90rpm
spin: 30min, 12.5mi, 90-100rpm
stationary: 20min cd, 90rpm, practically no tension
total 19.5mi, 1:05
I'm not 100% sure how the spin bike should be adjusted, so I may go to a spin class tomorrow because someone there is bound to know.
