I didn't think I really had much today but I decided I needed 90 minutes on the trainer. With the rain and heavy dampness, it's very humid. This turned into a real sweat-fest from the start! I was tempted to put on dry clothes after 60 minutes, but I figured I only had 30 minutes more to ride. Bad decision. I ended up with some good chafing where my soggy shorts were rubbing with each pedal stroke. No biggie, but the whole thing could have been avoided with some dry clothes.

I started off a bit slow as this just didn't feel like it was time to spin. But the longer I rode, the better I felt. I ended up doing some short, all-out sprints near the end. That really got the HR going!! It turned out to be a fun ride. Even on the trainer! :-)

    I know, right?! The old "gym shorts" just didn't cut it on the bike!

    You always seem to make trainer rides FUN, Scott. What incredible commitment. I often think of you when I ride, and get motivated by the great, consistent riding you do!!

    You rode the demons out of your system. That's why you felt good at the end. Now if you will only remember to use Chamois B'ttr when riding the trainer, you might just survive. .... Nice ride my friend.

    Thanks very much friends!! @Jonathan and Richard - 90 minutes is on the line of needing to wear spandex and use Chamois B'ttr. I can usually get in anything at 90 minutes or less without. But the high humidity (I think) made things a little different today. @26x25 and Dimitris - Ain't that the truth! @Lisa C. - Riding is fun! :-) Granted, I'd rather be outside but still ... I don't know about great riding, but I am consistent. My current streak is at 860 days in a row!
