Every Once in a While, a Trainer Ride isn’t so Bad…

My legs were absolutely smoked yesterday. That 23-mph average from Tuesday night took a toll. All day long I was hurting walking around my jobsite. Climbing stairs, and there are a bunch, was brutal.

It was raining when I got home, but it stopped shortly thereafter. It wasn’t going to dry out before we were supposed to roll at just before 5. It was going to be close but I had a few things to consider. First, I had no desire to clean my bike. I’ve cleaned enough bikes the last couple of weeks. Second, I had to take into consideration my smoked legs. I really needed an easy day to bring my legs back.

It’s that time of year, my friends. May as well embrace the horror.

Forty-five minutes spinning my legs out, watching Star Wars The Force Awakens – fantastic. I didn’t have to clean my bike and my legs are feeling much better.

One surprising aspect of my first evening on the trainer since March, the time actually went by pretty quick once I got into a rhythm. After the first five minutes I looked at the clock and all I could think was, “holy crap, this is going to take forever”. I didn’t look at the clock again for another 30 minutes and I only had ten minutes to go. I know that won’t last but it wasn’t so bad last night.
