Good morning Ladies and Gents! What a lovely morning. Well it almost didn’t start that way. With the clock being skipped ahead and the long night on Saturday it was a close one this morning when the alarm went off at 6:30am (well the radio started @ 6:20am, but I managed to sleep through it). I didn’t want to let any of my readers or workout buddies down by being a lazy sod.
So let’s get back to Sunday morning while I was working off the hangover and before I did my long awaited P90X Day 5 workout. I decided to make some changes to the setup of my cycling computer. When I originally set it up I just connected the cadence portion of it. I didn’t think I would be able to find a place to attach the magnet for the ‘spokes’ of the spin bike. While I was laying on the coach I realized that it’s a magnet and the flywheel of Spritz is steel. Hmmmmm. Well the magnet needed a little bit of help because the wheel spin and the centripetal force. Solution? Double sided carpet tape.
So I hopped on Spritz version 3 and it was awesome. With the computer fully connected I no longer have to reset the computer because of the timeout. Now as soon as I start spinning, the computer comes on and stays on and I can now track Average Cadence. I flipped on my backlog of Bluebloods (which is Amazing! It turns out Tom Selleck’s moustache can stops bullets, but his shoulder can’t), and started hammering away at the pedals. It was really good once I got about 3 minutes in.
So when it was all said and done, my average cadence was 89 and my average BPM was 157. When the 40 minutes (and like 30 seconds, but I rounded it down) and a distance of 21.48KM. It also gives you your max speed and average speed and a whole bunch of cool stats that I won’t bore you with. I can now use Daily Mile to its full potential.
