I biked the IM Canada bike course on the Computrainer at The Multisport Advantage today. Well, most of it. I couldn't do the last 9 miles because they had to close the training center early, and they didn't tell me that until literally 5 minutes before they closed. But they assured me that the last part was all downhill. It certainly looked that way on the course, and I had already started the descent, so I'm not too worried about it. I know I got all the climbing in. All in all, this was some serious mental agony, especially since I did this primarily alone, although two people came in at different times, plugged into the Computrainer and biked for awhile, and then left. But they both hooked in behind me, so I couldn't talk to them. I had virtually no music, either; just what was playing on a low level in the training center, which I could barely hear. Welcome to enduring boredom, baby.
They assured me that everything is worse on the Computrainer, and if you can ride the course on it, then the race will feel easier. I sure hope that's true. I also didn't bring enough calories with me; so I will need to look at that and figure out a way to bring more energy with me on the bike. I was getting lightheaded at the end. 3 Luna Bars, 3 Gu, 1 Powerbar, 1 bottle of HEED, 3 bottles of H2O.
