20 spin sessions?!
Time does, indeed, fly ...
I just wrote up the program for our 20th spin session for this winter. It's hard to believe, it seems to have gone so very quickly. We've been averaging around 22 people per night at these sessions and apart from one night where Dino did the dinner, Lucie and I have cooked 19 monster spag bolls since the end of daylight savings. Some stats :
We've used some 81 kilograms of mince beef so far. My local butcher loves me.
All the enduros have done 1,900 seconds of HCLR and on the bike strength work just in the warmups.
My fluid trainers have been brilliant. The sprinters know they're in for a hard night if they get the uber-flywheel KKRM, it's a very big ask indeed to get it up and going from a standing start.
I'm not going to do any more sums, but it's been a long and successful winter so far. We haven't had a huge night like we did last winter, where we had one night some 34 riders show up, but we've had a solid block of regulars who keep coming back and my sprint group has grown too, which I'm very pleased about.
I've also been working for Hilton at the NTID sprint squad for about 4 or 5 months or so I think, that's been a fantastic learning and development opportunity and I expect will lead to bigger things in the future. I'm responsible now for 11 Powertap track hubs which is a significant percentage of Wheelbuilder's production. Two of them are mine, 3 NTID, 2 VIS, 3 are Hilton's and 1 is one of the riders.
And last night I did another 125km on the motorbike at DISC motorpacing the sprinters.
It sure adds up fast ...
