Training on the Trainer
The original plan yesterday was to do a ride outside with one of my colleagues from work. However, as the morning progressed, I realized I didn't have a bootie for one of my shoes, which I would need in the cold and my colleague felt a little under the weather near the end of the day.
When I got home from work it was quickly getting cold and fatigue was rising. An alternative to riding outside presented itself in the form of the trainer. I set up my bike, hopped on and it was a go.
YouTube 80s / 90s Style
I put some random music on via YouTube on the t.v. and began to ride away. Then Belinda Carlisle came on, then more late 80s stuff, I think Tiffany was in there. I pedaled forth persevering to make it through, not wanting to lose focus by switching songs.
After about an hour or so I knew it was time to hop off, fatigue creeping into my legs and mind along with my tolerance for 80s music waning with every pedal stroke. I dismounted the bike with grace, tranquility, and ease, along with an unfettered enthusiasm for finishing up my workout.
Sometimes You Can't Ride Outside
I think this is a good example of how sometimes you need to mix it up when things don't go your way and you can't ride outside. Persevere through the ups and downs of training to focus on your fitness the best you can!

Note: You may have noticed I switched themes. I am having some issues getting speed up on my website with WordPress, scoring so so on speed tests like Pingdom and GTmetrix. As such I may be switching to an html / css blog either fully designed myself, using a template, or a partial design using bootstrap or something similar. I've noticed my html designs are blazingly fast, scoring faster than nearly 100% of other websites. Google does rank based upon website speed, but I get hardly any visitors either way, so I guess that doesn't matter, I just personally like the speed the html sites load at but perhaps that is another blog for another day (probably better than this one, I rate this one as a 4 out of 10). Anyways, thank you for stopping by and I hope you found what you are looking for.
