5k (3.1 miles) - 30:16 - 9:45 min./mile pace
Spinning, 1 hour (ave. heart rate during that hour = 170)
800m (1/2 mile) swim - 18 minutes
I'm really happy with how things went for me today. Granted, I had a break between the running and the spinning, but still, I was glad that I felt strong doing my swim. I don't know how many miles would be the equivalent of an hour of spinning, but I'm guessing it would be more than 20. That guess is based on the fact that when I ride a regular upright bike at the gym for an hour, the distance readout is usually at least 20 miles, and I know I am working much harder and going faster when I'm in a spinning class. Has anyone ever figured out how to gauge that? I would be very interested to know.
