Hey, I thought I had that plan copyrighted!
Actually, that's sort of what I'm doing at our club, tho not every
I still run outside, but my every other day club workout involves a
hard workout on the life cycle - in hill climbing mode, then 1/2 mile
or a mile of easy/hard intervals on the indoor track, followed by the
I'll probably reverse that on occasion and do the swim first, but I
found that if I delay, all the machines are full.
Any suggestions about the value of that sort of workout would be
welcomed here, too.
When it warms up, I'll shift to outside biking and (I guess) just swim
inside. Haven't got that far yet.
