This morning I did a half-hour spin on the trainer while watching Heroes on Netflix. I mixed it up a little with a couple of fast sprints, but nothing too crazy. It’s only the second time I’ve used a trainer, and it’s kind of odd having to pedal for 30 minutes straight. It’s a pretty decent workout. Seeing how it’s tough to get as many miles on the bike as I want to, the trainer may be the best approach for getting my legs in shape for the longer rides.
I also spent 30 minutes this afternoon on the eliptical trainer at the gym. I tend to enjoy doing the interval mode, as it simulates hills to a certain degree. The work and recovery helps to really get my heart rate going.
