I got a ride.....of sorts!
Well, I did my first time in a saddle today. 1 hr on the Spin Bike at the Gym. I forgot how much I hate those things.....not enough resistance and a big WIDE saddle! The Q on the crank is way too wide too. That said, I was still able to get a marginal workout. I never could hit my target HR range though. 120 cadence and the best I could run my HR to twas 124.
I was able to get down on the aerobars on the spin bike without my shoulder screaming too badly though, so I am making progress.
Flip side, on the leg press, I got in 100 reps in 3 sets of 30 and a set of 10 at 520-700 pounds variable weight (Cam action on the pulleys), with the resistance maxed out as well. That DID get the HR up, fortunately. The rest of my workout today was 0 weight mobility exercises and gentle passive stretching as therapy for my right shoulder, and I go to resistance bands next week if the pain is down a bit more.
PAIN is for wussy.
