It had to happen sometime

Well with the cold and ice we now have I have to admit it is impossible to get a good cardo workout.  I will finally break down and be going to spin class tonight :(  I am looking forward to next wednesday working out with the team at the shop.  I'm glad to hear a training "ride" at 6pm so I actually can make it on time.  Being on a bike trainer sucks but it is better with good company.  It's also okay if you play Wii (the only way to actually get a workout on the wii)  So back to the all time 'do indoor miles count as miles?'  I'm going with the final answer yes,  I didn't count them last year but why not?  So how many miles is and hour on a trainer/spin bike count as?  My current opinion is 16 but open for debate since I'm only entering these miles into my personal goal of hitting a 10k year (failed 2 years running) I dont feel that this is cheating, but only time will tell.

I know you'll laugh- but I actually LOVE the spin bike at my gym. LOVE it. Addicted.
Last night, Tara and I were side by side- doing the same hill program and it was pretty fun with her company. Both of us climbing the same "hills" at the same time, was pretty fun. I need a spin class.

Miles are easy to count. Didn't you just get a garmin? Did you get the cadence/speed sensor with it? Just set it up on the back wheel and you're good to go. Or, if you're using one bike for indoors only during the winter, throw a cheapy computer on thats set up to trigger off the rear wheel. That's why I always go with "miles" versus hours as I can actually track mine. Oh, and I don't count anything on a spin bike, only my own bike on the trainer that I've actually got proof of.

I have a cheap computer with cadence speed so I might try that.
