While in the class to day i was woundering what distances you cover while spinning, and what would it relate to out on the road

you do 45/60 min constant leg action were on the road for the same ammount of time you would have free wheeled a bit.

so a wounder what the totals would be Question

Isn't it strange what you think of as your lungs drop out of your Ar*% Laughing Laughing

I have to be all complicated and link distance to calories used. I've looked up calories used for a one hour cycle on the net:

http://www.krstarica.com/eng/weight/index.php?tip=2&akcija=1&tezina=82&aktivnost=22&sati=1&minuta=0

That gives a figure of 830. So, I divide the calories my HRM says I've used by 830 then times it by 36, which is my faster time trial speed/hour (in km).

So, last nights fairly gentle ride used 646 calores and returned a distance of 28km. A 1:30 aerobic turbo ride uses 1064 calories and is 46km. These speeds are compairable to real life rides but, just like real life, the harder you work the further you go. The one and only speed turbo session I've done said 795 calories used and 34km travelled.

Unnecesssarily complex? Very Happy

But where's the fun in entering zero in the log?

I use a points system to keep track on the amount of training I'm doing for each event, so I don't go too heavy on one at the expense of another. Entering zero messes all that up so I put in a formula that's a best guess distance.

Am I excused a visit to the loony bin?

In case you didn't know, in my day the way to get your RHR was to press a finger on your carotid and count 10secs on your watch. Multiply by 6.

I know you young (ha!) whippersnapper has 101 gizmos to tell you when you're next due to fart but the old ways are still the best and most reliable! Wink

Confused you told me your heart rate monitor told you what your resting HR was, hence the many times ive told you to get it changed.

I never said that - you just presumed it! My Polar's been out of action for almost a year.

BTW, Klingon minutes (according to Bill Bailey) are longer than puny Earth minutes, therefore it would lower my RHR

lol, you're such a lying git! Wink

well if you take your pulse by pressing your carotoid artery then make sure you do it for 30-60secs. 10secs and there is a big margin of error....you have to be 0.166 a sec accurate! Very Happy
