Note to self. If you are plan to ride a bike on a trainer, make sure you have a bike built up.
Since Shelley and I are going to move in three months we have already started putting stuff in
storage my father's basement. For me that would include several bicycles. Of note, it included all my geared bikes. What to do? I took my single speed bike and put it on the CompuTrainer.
You know what? it worked out pretty well. Nice.
The next thing to work on after I build my winter/fender bike is the engine. Yikes! All this running has done nothing for my cycling muscles and it showed today. I optimistically set my threshold power at 310 watts while Greg K and Ryan D looked pretty comfy at 330.
I had to stop pedaling briefly twice during the second interval (we did a modified 2 x 20 workout) so perhaps 310 was a bit high…
At lunch I managed to get in my core work. Whew. I feel like I'm trying to do too much. I want to ramp up the cycling, continue the core, do stairs, not let the running die and lift some weights. I just want to hit the couch.
