Ranting Post

Yikes. Anyone else get a calendar in the mail from Runner's World? No thanks! They sent me a calendar in the mail and then billed me 21.95 for it and I never asked for one! Then they want me to send this calendar back on my dime! They sent it to me without me requesting it! Grr.

Anyways, I don't have much positive to report about my workout yesterday. I ran 3 miles and it wasn't the best run I've ever had. My legs were really tight and I never really got into the right rhythm. I biked for 20 minutes afterwords and have decided that biking on a stationary bike deems little rewards. According to the machine, I only burned 90 calories in 20 minutes. This just seems crazy. I was going at about 85 rpm, perhaps that is slow? I don't even know as I'm not really much of a cyclist. Anyways, I'm probably going to have to work on that more before the triathlon.

I plan to get a better run in tonight. We'll see how it goes.

Get your rpm up to 90-105 and keep in mind you'll beed to go 2x as long on a bike than you do in running (approx) to burn the same amount. Good Luck!

Are you talking about a calendar from Runner's World? I didn't get one, but for some reason they sometimes have these things where they'll send people their publications for a "free trial" but you either have to pay a ridiculous price for that product if you want to keep it (when the same product retails on Amazon for about half the price) or you have to pay to ship it back. I didn't get a calendar, but I've had that snafu with a book. It sucks!
