Riding as exercise

I rode Riley on Sunday, in 91 (99 "realfeel") temps. Had a good ride but I really have to bring it to get good work, and we DID work. My Fitbit tends to underestimate my heart rate. I ran a 5k the day before, and pretty much went at the top of my ability (struggling mightily at the end) -- my peak heart rate was 181 bpm.

  1. Earlier this year, I was running nightly and bought a heart rate monitor to track my progress. I started wearing it to ride and found that I would burn about 480 calories in an hour of schooling fourth level work. My heart rate would get the highest (high 160s I think) in my sitting trot work where I was really trying to keep the correct, quiet position. My husband was shocked that I could get such a work out while riding. To stay fit, I still need running or some other fitness activity in my life unfortunately.
