Springfield Tri Club

SportsCare - Memorial Medical CenterAn email went out from the Springfield Triathon Club that they were going to start having Sunday training sessions at the new Sports Care Building.   I thought to myself, what a great opportunity to train with someone besides my tv set.  The idea was people could bring their trainers and bikes and we would watch a training video.  Well it turns out I was the only one to show up, besides John Gee of SportsCare.  He was gracious to stick around, and ride. 

We popped in a Chris Carmichael hill training video.  The video targeted power by pushing a low gear up hill with a cadence of 60.  Then spinning to recover with a cadence around 95.  I placed my front wheel on a 6 inch block to help simulate a hill climb.

This was a change up to my normal indoor cycling routine with Coach Troy.  The 45 minute routine was a tough workout.  The sweat poured out of me.  I followed up the cycling with a short mile run on the treadmill at a 8:30 pace.

I really enjoyed the workout.
