Spinning My Wheels, but not for much Longer…


It almost seems a waste, spinning on my trainer in front of the TV. On the good side, Inception is one of the best movies ever made. On the bad, dude it’s time to get outside already!

Last night was one of those odd nights. It was supposed to be the first club ride of the season but it was just below freezing with a 15mph wind. Oh, and it was alternating between sun and snow.  Still, 5pm rolled around and here comes the sun…

I dressed and threw a leg over the bike, on the trainer.

So there I am, cranking out 32 mph intervals and I’m splitting my time watching the movie and looking outside and the sunshine…  I know it’s cold, but it’s still one of those, “dammit, I should be out there!” days.

Twenty minutes later and the clouds let loose and the snow fell.  Finally, I can breathe a little easier…  The ride on the trainer was justified, no matter how much I’d have rather been outdoors.

    The sun’s been back the last three days and it has been such a relief to get out and ride.

    I used to have compu-trainer years, loved it. (I don’t even know if they make those anymore) I could travel wherever I wanted with a video on the tele. It is so funny, but those have come a long way since.
