I hear you there. I need some serious bike time, and now that it's cold, it will mean hours on the trainer.

So -- what does everyone do to pass time on the trainer?




Movies Movies Movies..... Got a long headphone cable and plug it right into the TV. Then I have a stand and use TrainerRoad.com on a laptop and just pick a workout that has about the same time as the the BT plan with about the same "effort" .. Trying to keep that line in the green on the PC helps motivate.

Excellent! It looks like it was a beautiful day for a run!

Last week folks. How is everyone doing?

I am going to get my strength in since I have to do PT sessions. I am only counting the actual "work" part of PT. I bombed out on the running, I just didn't get it in before the surgery, and I COULD have if I had put my nose to the grindstone (that sounds like it would HURT). I may get the bike in, but I really overestimated how much this dam surgery would hurt. I have 4 hours left to do and in theory, only should do about 20 minutes a day. Though they did say I could do it as long as there was no major pain. We shall see. Going to give it a try here in a few minutes.

Go get those goals everyone!

I usually watch something on TV. Either shows I have DVR'ed or football - tonight, I will be knocking out 2 hours on the trainer watching Sunday night football

I have no access to any video where the trainer is, so I use music or books on tape for long sets.

Well, it looks like I bit off a little more than my schedule would allow me to chew

With my pool closed the last 10 days, and leaving for vacation tomorrow morning, my swim/bike are about as complete as they are going to get. I plan on bringing my running gear to do laps around my wife's small home town for the remainder of the week, but I doubt I will be able to put in a 35+ mile week....but who knows

Good luck to all of the rest of you in hitting your goals, and happy early thanksgiving!

Me too.  Putting something that you are interested in on the TV keeps me going.  If I didn't have that, then I would need a good window to look out of while listening to music or an audio book.

Well I totally skipped my Monday long run for no good reason except I didn't want to do it.  Now I'm working nights and it will be tough to reach my challenge goal.  On this last week I need some encouragement from all of you to run... tell me what you have planned for the week so I can feel guilty if I skip my runs!!!

For the trainer, I discovered a great '80s station on Pandora. Spent an hour listening to music I danced to at my HS prom. Definitely made me smile.

Here is a kick in the tush for motivation! I can't guilt you into anything with what I have planned, but I don't need to. You will feel tons of guilt all by yourself when others reach their goal and you don't. Go and run!

 

did that work?

Thanks but no, it didn't work... lol.  I'm on my last of three 12 hour night shifts tonight (Wed) so I WILL run Thurs, Fri and Sat BUT I need 16.25 miles to reach my goal and I'm not sure that is going to happen.  I'll need an 8 mile and two 4 mile runs... doable, just need to do it !!  Maybe I will make my goal !!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Just trying to decide if I should swim today as the YMCA will be open from 7 am to 11 am or if I should just stay home and enjoy the day.
Have met my swim goal but need a mile more for the run and 14 more for the bike.

We have three more days to meet our goals. Looks like most people will be able to reach at least one or two of there goals.
I hate when work interferes with my fun time. But without working I guess I would not have the money to do the fun thing.

feeling very depressed hoping if I go for a run it will help. Feels cold outside but I know once I start running it will be fine. Guess I have to push myself to get dress and run outside. I only have a mile to run to meet by running goal.

Ran 8 miles today, need 2.25 miles tomorrow to make my 70 mile challenge goal.  How is everyone else doing?  Are you going to meet your goal this month?

Came in at 81% and I'm done for the month. Thanks to all of you for taking part, and for whoever made the spreadsheet. It was fun!

I didn't meet my run, and missed my bike by 1/2 an hour.

Way to go everyone!

Most of those thinking about tackling a long swim instinctively feel it’s necessary to Do much to build endurance - more yards, harder laps. But a focus on Receiving is ideal for long distances.
