You Win, Bike Trainer

by Meghann on May 24, 2012

Bike trainer: 1 Meghann: 0


I pulled the bike trainer out of the cobwebs today. I was hoping to get a ride in while catching up on Tuesday’s season finale of Glee (*tear* So I’m confused…. is half the cast leaving the show or what?!)

Anyways, it’s been a long time since I’ve hopped on the bike trainer and I forgot how much of a pain in the booty it can be. The first time I thought I had the bike in the slot, my back tire wouldn’t move. When I lifted the bike out of the trainer the back tire came off with it. It took me 10 minutes alone just to figure out how to get the tire back on (the chain had come off by the pedals, which was throwing me off).

Then once I put the bike back in the trainer, it wouldn’t stay straight up. I would lean to one side and the back tire would push on one side of the stopper. By this time Derek was up and he was getting a kick out of watching me wobbling in and out of the bike with my clip-ins on trying to figure out what was wrong. A couple of times I thought I had it right, only to fall out of it again.

By the time the hour long episode of Glee was over, I had gotten maybe 10 minutes on the actual trainer total and Maddie was refusing to speak to me ever again. (She no likey the bike trainer)


You win, trainer. You win.

I finally gave up and placed my bike and trainer to the side. Instead I did Tone it Up’s recommended workouts for yesterday: Sunkissed Abs and She Sells Sea Shells by the Seashore. At least I got some sweating in. :)

The workout was followed by a bowl of cereal.


  • 1/2 cup Kashi Cinnamon H2H
  • 1/2 cup Wheat Chex
  • walnuts
  • Plain Chobani
  • strawberries


Look who is finally speaking to me again.


It took her a while to forgive me for getting the big scary trainer out, but she’s starting to come back around. :)

A big CONGRATS to Leslie, the winner of the case of Whole Foods Mangos!!!

Is there any pieces of equipment that scares your dog or cat? Maddie is pretty much afraid of everything, but vacuum cleaners and bike trainers seem to put her over the edge.
