Riding the Trainer

on March 10, 2015

Because I forgot to post this last week….

Sometimes it is just too: early, late, cold, hot, dark out to ride or run outside. That is when we turn to the dreaded trainers in the basement. I say dreaded because I would MUCH rather ride or run outside, but I know that they serve a purpose. Doesnt mean I have to like them.

This week, Ken and I found ourselves spending some quality time together with the hum of spinning bike wheels. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, Ken was brave enough to wake me up at 5 am to workout. I did it grudgingly :/ I used to wake up at 5 every morning for grad school, to go to the gym and then was up throughout the night with baby Brooke, so I am no longer a morning person. As Ken likes to say, I am a middle of the day person…since I am not really a night owl either. I like to say that I am a “when the sun is up person”. If it is light, I am a-okay with being awake!

The nice thing about riding the trainer (with a buddy) is that we got to watch some random programs that we dont normally get to sit down and watch with Brooke running around. We also got to caffeine-ate together afterwards and were not worried about trying to fit our workouts in later in the day.

About 50 minutes is all I can handle on the trainer before going insane, so I spent about that much time on the bike each morning and then about 10 minutes either lifting or stretching afterwards.

Even if I dont love it, at least it is a means to get a workout in!
