Rocking the Trainer

Finally getting healed up and was ready to give the trainer a try again.  I wanted to get a longer workout so I waited until I was mostly done with the laundry (last load in the dryer) and headed down to the basement garage.  Then I popped in my Netflix DVD that came the other day and watched "Rock of Ages" while I cranked away for 1 hr 45 min (probably about 23 miles equivalent).  The movie was kind of campy and it is weird to see some of these stars singing, but the fun 80's music was a decent soundtrack to my workout.  Lots of fun memories from jr high and high school with the "hair bands".

Oddly, my arms were hurting almost from the beginning.  I really need to spend some time on upper body and core strengthening.  My hips and knees were starting to hurt a little also so I decided not to watch the last part of the movie on the bike, but drank some water and sat at the kitchen table.

I've been really enjoying the Facebook updates from Team Virtus as they have a great road trip/bachelor party for Bob.  Kate even drew blood at an indoor mountain bike park.  How cool is that!  Best bachelor party ever!

Swimming = 0 yds
Biking = 48.0 miles
Running = 34.0 miles


  1. Nice. 1:45 on the trainer is no joke.

  2. Nice long ride! Do you have aero bars. I added clamp on aero bars so my upper body doesn't have to do any work. It just kind of rests there.
