Gossip Girl Workout

Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.  After a day of sitting through a basketball tournament my daughter was playing in, it was time to eat some dinner (with veggies even!) and let the family take off to meet some friends while I got in a workout on the trainer.  I drug a TV tray in, fiddled with the laptop until it finally connected to the wifi through the concrete ceiling of the garage and jumped on the trainer to settle in for a couple of episodes of my current Netflix addiction "Gossip Girl" (I'm on season 3). 

Time still drug on a little, but not nearly as bad overall.  Plus, when there was still part of an episode left after the hour was up, I continued on for another 20 minutes with a slightly easier spin.  I picked up the pace a bit during a Lady Gaga song that was in the show.  I also varied the cadence and tension some - by scene (or three or four) just to mix it up.  I was feeling it a little just above my knees after a while.  Will probably need to get a fitting done if I am going to ride larger volumes, but I need to have some other work done on the bike this winter so I'll probably combine those errands.

I took my shower and rubbed some Biofreeze on my legs and settled back in my fuzzy robe with another episode (ok, or three).  Time to get to bed now so I can get up for mass in the morning.  I'm expecting more of these workouts to come.

  1. See, it's getting a little more'll adapt just fine!

  2. Do you have to turn it up super loud or do you use a headset? I am so impressed by your perseverance! 1 hour 20 minutes on the trainer...sweet!
