Stationary Cycling Mar 2012-Jan 2013

DW's recumbent stationary bicycle in the basement serves to get the heart rate up, slightly, and the sweat rate up, significantly, when injury preempts the running option. Typically I set it to the half-hour "Program #5" (the hardest) which seems to be the equivalent of doing ~15 min/mi jogging pace, i.e., ~400 kcal/hour. According to my notes I pedaled madly on it a few times in 2011 and more intensively in January 2013 while recovering from foot and hip/ITB injury. Data, including what I watched or read during the spin:
