Yesterday I slept in and it was glorious.
After a busy week of early mornings and a super early morning on tap for Sunday, I really needed the extra sleep. I ended up not running, but I wanted to get some sort of workout done so I decided to make use of my
absolutely necessary desired time in front of the TV and bust out my spin bike.
See, my two favorite college football teams just happened to be playing at the same time (Cal – Bay Area of course and Oregon – in Eugene the running capital!) and I really wanted to watch the games. So I turned my spinning session into a workout based on what was happening in the game.
I set some rules and got going on my bike!
My college football spinning class:
Commercial = standing climb
Kick off/punt/point after touchdown = sprint
Defense = seated climb
Offense = easy spin
This turned into quite a workout especially since the quarter I was watching Cal happened to sadly be on defense way more than offense (which is ok now since they ended up winning).
I only had an hour before I had to get ready for plans that evening, but that hour had my soaked in sweat and definitely feeling the burn!
Time passed by so fast and I definitely will be doing this again… it’s a great way to get multitask my Saturday college football watching with a workout. Plus it will always be different based on the game which is fun too.
Are you a football fan? Do you ever multitask workouts with other things?
