The session I was leading was an indoor bike spin session, but with an educational theme. This was new for me as I was trying to do a presentation while working out! As public speaking isn’t hard enough already, this time I was on my bike, I had athletes riding along and walk by Vancouver Bike Show patrons listening in.
On the positive side, it was expected that I would be short of breath and sweating profusely while doing the presentation. Pre-presentation checklist was more complicated than usual with microphone, remote control, bike, indoor trainer, towels, gels, energy drinks,…
I lead the group through “planning a fitness workout from an energy system perspective”. In a nutshell, after an easy aerobic threshold warm up, we moved from supra-maximal efforts to anaerobic power to aerobic power and aerobic capacity and economy of motion before closing with anaerobic capacity.
I’ll get the slide show posted shortly.
The fundraiser was a great success and Amy will soon be heading of to her initial 70.3 events in the US and Europe.
