Triathalon training: 1 solid hour on the bike

Being the fair weather rider that I am, I opted to ride inside today, 1 solid hour, on the LeMond bike.

Let me start by saying… BORING.
Let me end by saying… BORING.

However, I did get a good workout in.  I did little mini-sets of pushing the heart rate anaerobically for about 1 minute, then recovering for about 30 secs.  And I watched a lady attempt to workout on the stairmaster.  Hey lady, if you support your whole body weight by locking out your arms, you’re not doing much – hint… you’re not even winded.  Then again, I sweat (and smell) like a man.

C’mon SPRING.  Not sure how much more of the East Boulder Rec Center I can handle.  Having the 1 hour to examine the bike beneath me, I’m pretty sure they clean that thing, oh, about 1ce every other week.  And the 6 year old boy running around the women’s locker room was a little much too – sure wish mom would use the FAMILY locker room.  It’s not just to protect your kid from adult-only atmospheres.  It’s to protect the ADULT from your kid’s inquisitive 6-year-old eyes.  You can be naked all you want in front of your kid, but don’t make me get naked in front of your kid.   (when you’ve got an hour on an indoor spinner bike, you’ve got time to think about all the complaints in the world…)
