I got myself an indoor trainer from a guy on the TriWa forum, for $70. It's not branded, Cyclops (an imitation of Cycle-ops?) and it's pretty basic but it serves it's function.
Although winter has just ended, the stubborn, stormy weather conditions seems to refuse to go away. I might find this gadget pretty useful after all. Also, if I'm hardworking enough, I might include regular, quick spinning sessions in my training regime, in front of the TV hehheh.
Having said that, today the skies cleared up a bit and I was able to ride outdoors. Was tracking pretty well until the last 10km, when I had a sudden bout of fatigue. There were some headwind on the journey out and I was hoping for some tailwind on the way back. But unfortunately, the wind changed directions and in my tired state, I was in no mood to fight the wind.
Completed a total of 80.62km in 2:51:22 (average 28.2kph). I even called off doing a 6km brick run after. Maybe I was feeling the after effects of the 10km run late yesterday evening (which I was pretty happy with - 42:39 in windy conditions with gusts up to 40kph!)
Hope I feel stronger next week. By the way, Sofian, this aero position picture is for you.
