New "Spin" on my Training

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, BJ and I are going to ride in the Scenic Shore 150 in 5 weeks. I need to start training NOW due to the fact I have not been on my bike in about 1 year. I had too many other things to train for such as the RKC. Now that that is over with I need to pick up my cycling a lot more. I know I will be able to finish and I will do fine, it is the sitting on the tiny bike seat 4-6 hours a day for two days. Talk about a sore butt! Here is what I did today. I worked out earlier today because we have to go over to my in-laws for a birthday dinner. I am letting myself give-in a little tonight.

Warm up: 3 sets of 10 KB Snatches with the 12kg
1-handed Swings with the 12kg Kettlebell 60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10
I took a 30-45 sec rest in between each set. This was a nice, but intense set for me today.
Today is a lighter KB day.
On the bike (bike on trainer) for 15 min. I did just a nice spin to get my legs back into it and let my tush get use to the seat.
Last but not least, I did 20 min of intense flexibility and mobility. Another huge goal of mine is to get my hips more flexible.

The whole workout took me 55 min. It felt good to get back on the bike.

Till tomorrow!

Were the one hand swings all on one side or switching every 10??

Tracy, I think she does one hand change per set.

Kori's working a double shift (16 hours) at the hospital today, but I'll have her get back to you.

Tracy, no I didn't switch every 10. I wanted to test my grip and really see how many swings I could do at once. It was fun!
