Didn't feel like reading tonight, so watched the Appendices of the Two Towers on portable DVD player - at least until the battery died... then a few more minutes to make it an even 50 minutes.

Trainer 1:00:00 [2] 24.0 km (2:30 / km)
shoes: Slipstream

Another hour in the basement, pretty comfy.. Front edge of seat strap digging into thigh a little bit, have to try some adjustments to get it to go away. Tried it looser, but wound up rubbing on lower strap.

Even though I'm not going anywhere, I decided that I'd like to track rough mileage while riding the trainer. So I worked out the gear inches at roughly 80 cadence I'm doing right now and it works out to about 24kph - interestingly enough about the pace I was commuting on last fall on the DF. Of course I've got no hills in my basement. But its a good number for now... Some folks say you need to get 1000 miles or so in before you really begin to develop your 'bent' muscles.

more of the same....

lower back sore, perhaps from chiselling ice this AM - had to do a lot of bending to pry up blocks of ice.

Trainer 40:00 [2] 16.0 km (2:30 / km)
shoes: Slipstream

Broke down and bought a magnetic trainer for the bike so that I could at least get some exercise in later in the evening after the kids are in bed. Otherwise I'm just not getting anything in. Everyone says that riding the trainer is too boring for words, but I didn't find it too bad. Just kicked back and read The Adventures of the Barefoot Sisters - a book about a couple of sisters who hiked the AT from Maine to Georgia, then back again - barefoot. Still in Maine on the sobo side of the trip, but enjoyable reading so far. Probably helps that one of the authors works for me as a tour guide....

Could have easily kept reading (and riding) but cut it short at 40 minutes. Haven't done squat for 2 months (more actually) and don't want to overdo things too quickly. But I think this will allow me to at least get some physical exercise most days.
