The thing I hate about the trainer is no matter how interesting the Spinnerval disc is or how good of a movie I watch, I still feel like a gerbil on an exercise wheel! If the weather would turn to snow even, I could get the old Royce Union out and ride the snow even. I actually like riding in snow.....it's fun!
Well, it appears I have a new reader, and welcome, Historian. If you look down in my sidebar, you'll find a link to Historian on Two Wheels. He's a fellow cyclist trying to lose weight and improve his health. This is a goal I heartily endorse.
Well, to the main point of this post. What I want to know is how do you make your indoor training time interesting? I don't care if you are riding a trainer, using an elliptical, Nordic Track, treadmill or what! How do you motivate yourself?
Also, on my Sidebar is a link to my Tour de Cure Page. As I mention frequently, I am seeking sponsorship in the Tour. It's easy to do, believe me. Go to my page and see just how easy it is. If you are a little hesitant to use the credit card, don't worry, it is a verisign secure setup. I NEVER see your card information. That is all handled by the American Diabetes Association. I am captain of Team Stormcrowe and another option you have is to join the team for the ride!
There are a couple of ride options.
- Ride laps at the track
- Ride one of the Road rides starting and ending at the Speedway (I'm doing the 75K ride and completing another 25 K riding around the track to get a metric century in).
