Need To Get Back On The Trainer

So I haven’t been on the trainer in weeks. I really need to get back on it asap, I’m getting fat. I know I have to eat right as well, but exercise is important. Just have to find the time to get all sweaty. Haha.

Early Morning On The Trainer

I thought I’d give getting up early and jumping on the trainer a try. Ugh, that sucked. It sure is hard getting up at 6:20 am and going down on the trainer to start your day. I could only eek out 2 miles before having enough. I guess that’s better than nothing.

It’s not the same as riding a bike, but it’s not bad though.¬†It still kicks your ass and makes you sweat, probably more than when you’re on a bike (well depending on where you’re riding). The trick to a successful ride on the trainer is to find a good video to watch. I found this one:

Do you use a trainer at all? What tips can you share with me?

Many people call this time the off season for cycling. It’s starting to get cold and cyclists are moving indoors onto their trainers. But in fact, this is the prefect time to be riding outside.

The leaves are changing, the air is brisk, the riding is good when you’re not over heating with the heat of summer. Now, in my opinion is prime time for cycling.

What do you think? What’s your favorite time to cycle? When do you throw in the towel and go indoors on a trainer?
