Buttercup Hit a PR on the Trainer
4:00 hours, 50.53 miles, 135 average HR, 2574 calories burned. Me, myself, and I headed to the cave at 5:30 am and emerged at 9:30. That left plenty of day for the cooking frenzy I'm about to begin for Christmas Day. I have to admit, I never imagined I could sit indoors on a trainer and ride bike for 4 hours. I shocked myself. All it took was Spinervals Hardcore 100, paying attention to Coach Troy's cues, and EATING. I had a bagel with fruit spread before I started, a Clif bar and Hammer bar during, and a Boathouse Farms Thai Chi Tea. Now I know I can do the entire 3-DVD set which is about 5 1/2 hours (maybe for the 5-hour January endurance session). Bring it! Tomorrow will be a mere 3 hours with a rest day on Christmas. Sunday I'll be back at it for 3.75 hrs and I'd love if Mom nature would cooperate and I could go outside, but she's stubborn sometimes.
