On The Trainer
It's called the "pain cave." I'm not sure if the majority of the pain comes from the effort of the training or the mind numbing pain of the boredom I suffer through when pedaling indoors. I don't get very far. In fact my bike doesn't move at all. Hopefully I can find some good low-key hillclimb videos on YouTube to watch because I really like those. It's almost fun to mimic the effort that whoever recorded those went through but frankly it's not nearly the same.
If I had had some time today between work and the circus waffle brunch my wife prepared I might have just taken out the new(er) bike today to ride in the snowfall just for a show of defiance. If only. If I had a cyclocross bike I would get it out there right now instead of sitting here typing this. If only. If I had spiked tires I would get out and ride in the ice and snow that I'm sure will hang around the roads a lot of the remaining winter here. If only.
