While working on how I am going to train for this triathlon deal I have found many resources online for training....as I mentioned before in Information Overload.
So, in order to get in some riding I am planing on taking a day off weight training every week and take a spin class before work. Now here is the question.....
Does a spin class count as a ride?
I have read from some triathletes that if you start and stop a "ride" in the same place without changing your view along the way, then it is not a ride. I get it. Riding a bike either on road or a mountain bike is much different than on a stationary bike. There are other factors than just spinning a wheel that come into play, like traffic, stop lights, rocks, hills, weather, etc.
But at the end of the day....Did my legs spin something? Did my heart rate increase? Did I sit on a saddle? Did I sweat? Did I compete with the guy next to me to go faster?
YES....so isn't that a ride?
