I'm spending plenty of time on my bike trainer these days. So I thought I'd show you what that means for anybody who might be curious.
I have my trainer set up in my garage. I tend to do my trainer workouts early in the morning so part of the key to success is in getting everything set up the night before. Today was a quick 30 minute spin so I didn't go overboard but I did set out my clothes and stuff. Another quick note - I use a separate wheel for my trainer sessions. I bought a cheap wheel at the bike shop with an inexpensive cassette and a trainer tire. This way I just change the wheel on the days that I ride the trainer.
|Next to the bike is my table of "stuff" I actually drink my morning coffee on the trainer on recovery days. The other bottle is water :-)|
|Here is my fan. A fan is important on the bike trainer. My garage is not air conditioned so it can get pretty steamy.|
|You can tell this was an easy peasy workout because I'm wearing a shirt.:-) Oh and my hair is relatively dry. Admit it you wish you had a beautiful huge forehead like me.|
|I use a cycleops trainer. I bought it used from a friend.|
|This is my view on the trainer. So exciting, right? Maybe that's why I took pictures today to occupy my time?|
|That's my son sitting on a skateboard watching me on the trainer. He left when I told him I had 15 minutes left. Apparently watching me on the trainer is even less exciting than me riding the trainer. Ha!|
