Yesterday I posted an interval training workout on the AirDyne. A reader asked what a normal week looked like so I thought I’d describe it here.
I ride the bike because I have had two knees surgeries and my knee joints no longer tolerate running. It is a choice made out of necessity.
In a typical week I will ride 4 times. In previous years I would do
5 mi timed
6-8 x.5 mi
3 mi timed.
I generally don’t ride on Sunday so I would ride 4 out of 6 days. After beginning my BioForce Heart Rate Variability program I realized that four hard rides a week was too much. I now do:
6-8 x .5
a 3 or 5 mi timed ride
Two 7 mi rides trying to keep my heart rate under 150 BPM. I hate these easy, recovery days but have added them to see if I feel better and, I must admit, I do.
Hope this helps.
