Well folks its getting hot out there and ill be honest the pool looks a bit more inviting than the trail or road at times.

I have a in ground pool and so my question is "do any of you incorporate pool workouts into your training?" and if you do what types of things do you do. I swim laps and find laps swam without any arms just using my legs burn well but any other tips.

I know you cant replace actual on bike work but just curious if its an option to incorporate into the schedule.

I just did. I rode 7 miles of hills and when I got home swam for about 15 minutes. Powered down a recovery drink and am feeling good. I ride from my house though.

Began my ride and it was 87. Got home and it was 91. Garmin said I burned 400 calories. Feels like a lot more though.
