Youtube Triathlon guru lesson

So im sitting at lexus getting a new battery for our car and thought i would use the time to add 1 piece of advice i am going to follow for my 70.3 training.

Basically youtube guru said, do not use spin classes as a form of training and fitness building.The reason for this was that your average heart rate is too high and whilst you will get fit quick, it does not carry though and last as long as if you gain your fitness slowly over time.

Rather youtube guru said we should train at a lower heart rate unless of course you are doing intervals etc.

So basically on your long rides and sessions on the trainer keep your heart rate at about 130bpm.

keep checking in as we learn from the all knowing youtube.
