This has probably been commented on before, but can’t find it at moment.

Do people count their cycle commute as part of training? Also on side note how short a session would people count as a session?

Currently doing 11.5miles each way (average 50mins) for commute, between which on feet the whole time.

I certainly did when I did it. Even paltry 2 milers but I did start with 7 milers each way

But you are your own judge you could always tag on some extra miles which I did sometimes

For my personal training diary I have a threshold of 10km continuous cycling before I log it (I wouldn't include 5km into town, and then 5km home later, for instance).

However, because of Conquercise and Fetchpoint I log pretty much everything here, including trips to the supermarket, pub, cinema, etc. Most of my cycling is still "training" though, I logged 7370km, but including all those little trips on Fetch, 8465km.

my cycle commute is a 25 mile round trip most days so hell yeah i'm gonna log it! Personally, i'll log anything over a mile - why not?

i have a mate who, when he was in the fire service, had a rule with the others that bike commuting wasn't 'proper' training. but i commuted over 6000 miles in the last 2 years and there's no way that it didn't benefit me, so i'm counting it!

Got something to say?
