Feeling Better!

I was feeling a little under the weather the past few days and ended up taking 3 days off the bike, despite being very anxious to try the new computrainer. So last week's stats were 4 days of riding and 121.16 miles.

Today was a gorgeous, warm day and I was torn between riding outside and getting on the new computrainer. Well, I decided that despite being warm, it would be a dirty ride outside and there could still be some ice. In fact, I later felt like I made the right decision when I saw on the Narragansett Bay Wheelmen message board that someone crashed on ice on today's ride and is having surgery. I don't know her, but feel so sorry it happened to her and hope she heals quickly!

I decided to do the same course on our computrainer that I did the first day on the shop computrainer, back on January 16th, so I could compare. Having felt off the past few days I didn't try to 'race', I just 'went for a ride' to see what would happen (which is how I did that shop ride too). Last time I did the 20.36 miles at 16.5 mph average and 144 average watts. This time I did 17.8 mph average and 159 average watts. Could it be improvement already?!

It sounds like the computrainer wasn't too difficult to install. I look forward to hearing more about your experiences with it!

Want to hear about the computrainer, so get well soon......but font overdo it. I was supposed to do a HR session today and my legs just went nah!...my HR was low and just wouldnt go up no matter how much I tried as I had no drive in my legs...solution - rest a bit and recover....interesting theory but I am prepared to try it.

sensible decision. hope you're fully recovered soon-or is this just an elaborate rouse to play with your new toy ;)
