I have always resisted the idea of riding a trainer in the house. It never appeared to be interesting nor effective, until this year.
It started out having a cold winter this January when I have to stop commuting for a few weeks.
In the fall when soccer season starts it is obvious that I will have less time riding in daylight.
Then there was some discount trainer emails flying around.
So being the cheap bastard that I am, instead of buying a new one, I sourced an old noisy trainer for $20 from a friend.
I've started riding on the trainer and it feels different. The 12s or zone 2s seem to be harder on the trainer than on the road. I've tried a small amount of 14s just to see how it feels and it seems harder as well.
On the entertainment front I found some old Japanese animation series that I normally would not watch sitting down. It works and time flys by a bit better than a regular Hollywood movie.
I probably need to set up a fan as I am sweating like a pig.
The lesson learned is that it is not boring when you don't want it to be boring.
