23 degrees and a bike

Winter on the trainer23, that’s it.

It wasn’t going to get any warmer today. The coach declared today a bike day and the trainer was waiting. It takes me several private pep talks to overcome my frozen inertia.

Workout #1: Bike
Planned Duration: 1:05
15 min gradual warm-up
 this was funny… there was no chance of a “rapid warm-up”.

On a whim I grabbed a DVD that turned out to be perfect for today’s ride.  Wayne’s World, an 80’s cinematic classic.  The Bohemian Rhapsody scene came on just in time finish off the warm up.  Mike Meyers & Dana Carvey car jammin’ out to Queen could not have been timed better. After some head-bopping, trainer jammin’, I felt ready for the rest of the workout.

I do like that my trainer is in the fresh air, once I get warm.  I like to be outside in the winter. This is a good thing since there’s no room in the house to keep the bike set up and if the bike wasn’t ready to go, it would be way to easy for my skip it.  So, it is what it is. And a workout done is better than none.

    Amen!
    You’re fortunate y’know, to have it at 23. It was 17 when I took my first step out the door this morning. Though all I had to do was walk briskly to my warm car. lol
    Excellent choice of movie! “We’re not worthy! We’re not worthy!”
    Oh yes we are.
    :o)

    So, this is what you do after you leave the pool, eh? Perhaps the trolls who live beneath the pool and control its temperature were just trying to get you ready for a chilly bike ride…
