Good morning trainer, nice to see you again. 🙂
My bike trainer has been in hibernation all summer. Probably from a mix of my paranoia to get as many miles on the road as possible for HIM training and my lack of fondness of riding a bike that goes nowhere for any length of time. Think treadmill, only noisier.
However, I pulled the trainer out over the weekend and brought it on the porch to enjoy the nice fall weather. I only had enough time for a quick 30 minute session of anything and hopping on the bike reminded me why I have the trainer in the first place:
- No need to drive the bike to the other side of town to get a ride in (the neighborhood around my house isn’t exactly cyclist friendly and I’m a big wimp around cars)
- So. Easy. Just hop on, ride, and done.
- I can easily adjust the stopper to make it harder or easier or add books to the front wheel for hills.
- TV. Enough said.
TV junkie. Right here. 😉
I hopped back on this morning with a little ‘Felicity’ to keep me entertained (I’m addicted). I rode for a 45 minute episode and let Maddie toggle between the backyard and porch for her own playtime of day. The quick ride still didn’t compare to a nice long one outside, but any exercise that allows me to feed my ‘Felicity’ addiction is always fine by me.
Side note: My gym has free wifi, so yesterday I brought my ipad to the gym hoping I could stream Felicity while I did my morning walk. It didn’t work. 🙁
My last piece of left over french toast from Saturday’s breakfast party was the star of this morning’s breakfast.
I reheated the french toast via the broiler and topped it with vanilla yogurt, a pear, good run granola, and extra cinnamon.
I love how the broiler gives the french toast a nice crisp crust. Just as good as the day I made it. 🙂
What’s your latest addiction? A new drink? snack? TV show? Share!
