I have just done a preliminary test on the Forza spin bike, and it is GOOD. I will not say I am in love with it (no wind whistling through the ears as on a real bike ride in a beautiful setting on a breezy day, no chance to work on bike handling skills), but I am love with what I think it will do for me in terms of basic endurance and fitness...

(Just did the 30-minute Spinervals technique workout - I had a late breakfast, after a decadent long morning lie-in, and needed to get some lunch in me in time for it to be digested for a 4:30pm treadmill run at World Gym!)

Also had a very enjoyable spell of poking around on the rather wonderful Cayman Active site - I think that if I can get on an early-morning schedule, there is an available hour of pool time for triathletes at the delightful-sounding new 25m pool at Camana Bay. I can wake up as I walk over - swimming in the early am is not quite the intense shock to the system that first-thing-in-the-morning warm running is...

More anon!

Glad the spinning is going to work well!

And morning swim options, too!
