Since it's RUNtober and everyone we know seems to be training for some sort of race, we asked our friends at FX Physical Therapy what they thought of spinning in relation to running and training plans. Spoiler alert - they are big fans! Read on to learn how spinning at REV can make you a stronger runner!
We have good news for you avid spinners - spinning regularly, mixed in with a well-balanced run training program, can make you a better runner. The best training programs, no matter what your target race distance, incorporate cross training days to prevent injury and burnout.
Here are the top 5 reasons why you should get on the next bike at REV!<
Below, we have provided what a balanced Run/Cycle week at REV might look like:
Monday: Speed or tempo run (Intervals, Track, etc) - Moderate/Strenuous
Tuesday: Recovery ride, 30 to 60 minutes - Easy (Nick's 6 am REV45 would be a great option!)
