The longest route I do on the kickbike is just over 14 km. I call it Swan Lake because it traverses the edge of a lake that often has black swans on it.
I'm thinking that if I try to do this route twice per week -- I have other routes I take on my morning kick -- maybe I can up my exercise-ing of Long Slow Distance to partner my HIIT/Tabata experiments.
I don't usually demand anything much from my kickbiking except that I get out there early -- often at dawn -- and kick as far as I feel like going.
Fortunately -- or unfortunately -- but very pleasantly, at the far end of my Swan Lake kick, I usually walk the tidal flats and indulge in some communing with Nature. So I break my journey.
It's so beautiful I can't help myself.
You can also do interval training on a kickbike...but I suspect you need to be an athlete to do it. I'm not.
So maybe, methinks, I can bargain with my options and :
- push hard out for the 7 km
- do my commune and wade about in the shallows
- hop back on the scooter and push hard back home for the last leg of 7 km.
and see what I may benefit.
