What a great day to be off of work and have an indoor trainer ride scheduled! It was 32 degrees when we woke up and just cold.
After Annie and I made a nice breakfast I jumped on the fluid trainer for 45 minutes and watched, "A Christmas Story" and then "Steven Segal: Lawman".
Mindless shows like this are great for the trainer. I'd have to say the trainer is actually more boring then the treadmill. I have been mixing it up as I ride to get the most out of my time. Today was a 10 minute warm up in the small ring and then I did 4x 5mins of RPE 3-4. I'd take a 1 minute in between intervals to get the HR back down to RPE 2 and then repeat. I cooled down in RPE 2 and have spent the rest of the day on the couch! We are off to our friends house for Christmas dinner and I am expecting my nutritional intake to take quite the hit tonight!
