Sun a lady at the tri I did mentioned that she bought a DVD of (I think ) the Lake Placid IM that was basically made into a spinerval workout. ANyone know anything about this?! She said she was bsaically riding along with the IM competitors. Sounded like a good way to pass cold weather months on the trainer. Just wondering if anyone had any info on something like that

We have the new Lake Placid Spinervals DVD (I think there are two). Hubby got it free after participating in a Spinervals video shoot last month. He said it was a good workout. You can bring your trainer over and ride w/ him this winter! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

I was just going to email you!!!! You beat me to it! So I guess I can just google Spinervals and find it there. And no, I will not be riding with your hubby, he seriously would kick my butt something awful!!!!! Though if you ever need a good laugh, I will be right over!!!

There is no butt kicking on a trainer (unless it's your own)! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> Plus I'll referee to make sure he behaves.

Wow, those sound great. I'm planning to get a trainer by winter so will have to check them out. Thanks for the tip!

<b>Sister</b>, the Spinervals videos are really great. My husband swears by them! I'm too chicken to try them. <img alt="cool.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif"> 'Course, I'm too chicken to do group rides too... So maybe I'm not the best person to ask, hahaha.

I've always liked the Spinerval workouts. The music lacks a little something... but the workouts are usually really good (well as good as good can be while indoors) <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Actually I think you were the one who first brought these to my attention!!! I did find the Lake Placid one on their website, I will have to buy it!!<br><br>
And <b>Theia</b> I think your hubby could find a way to kick my butt even on a trainer. If nothing else, he would just push me over!!!!<img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

You and I need to ride together. I am the biggest chicken ever. I'll do small group rides but still stay with people who ride at speeds below my fitness level because I can get so skittish out there.<br><br>
Spinervals, there's no traffic or surprises -- that's do-able!

THAT's what I'm talkin about! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> The only surprises I worry about on my trainer are kitties running around and getting too close to the back wheel. So far they are smart enough to know to stay away from Mommy and Daddy while we're riding in the middle of the living room.

I'll have to get that one. I'm heading out to Lake Placid on Tuesday, so hopefully the DVD will bring back good memories for me this winter. I think this is the one for mr. fox. Weather should only get to 70F. He's done 2 IM in 80-90F and last years' in 30-40 rain. 60-70f will be a treat.<img alt="hello2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/hello2.gif">

Fox, we're heading to Lake Placid on Monday. Hubby is doing the race for the second time (plus Florida in 2004). Good luck!

It is the only IM one I could find. BUt there are lots of the DVDs out there. Theia's hubby might have some good suggestions, maybe next week when she gets back he can help us out!!
