Now that riding the bike trainer is becoming a habit I'll start next week with a new twist in the routine - intervals. One of the local bike shops is holding winter classes on a variety of topics like
- introduction to spinning
- cycling and yoga
- bike repair and maintenance 101
At the spinning class they gave out a program for interval training, intervals are brief bursts of intense activity followed by a period of less intense activity. So you use a timer and follow the prescribed timed intervals. The result of training like this is to gain stamina and build endurance.
I'm about ready to switch it up a bit and ready to give this a go round. Might just help with some of the hills around here come spring time. Can't hurt.
Repair and maintenance class is coming up this month and I can't wait. I recieved a handy little all purpose tool kit for Christmas and now I can learn how to use it!
