    Spent an hour spinning with 1 minute on and one minute off sprints for 12 minutes. I actually brought my HR over 120. I think by increasing my cadence I'm able to slowly reach higher zones.

    Yep - higher cadence (less resistance) will tend to get the HR up before the muscles fatigue and build aerobic fitness. Once you get a bit of base, you can then throw some strengthies in - lower cadence with more resistance, you should find that your muscles will fatigue before your HR gets up. Good to play with blocks of each so a few weeks of one, then switch for a few weeks to the other. Don't ever increase the workload by more than about 10% per week though and try and have an easy week every third or fourth week.

    Need to take my own advice though as I think I have overdone the intensity a little and set off a bit of nerve pain down both legs and am having trouble straightening up.
