The weather was bad on Friday, no doubt about that. We had planned on riding the Tripower ride on Saturday morning, but wet roads on a cold morning with a group that seems to crash every week, not so appealing. So we had a plan B. Indoor workout. Say what you want about indoor training. I hear it all the time, "I would rather shoot myself than ride for 2 hours indoors" or how about "Riding in the cold, wet weather builds character." That it may. But why risk the stupid injuries, illness and overall discomfort and eventual discouragement.
So four of us met at Performance Point on Saturday morning with our trainers, bikes and alternate workout shoes. The workout was 1-1/2 hours long. The workout consisted of steady efforts of around 85%, or aerobic effort on the bike, Jacobs Ladder and Versa Climber. It also consisted of technique and spinning drills. We essentially got a great workout, appropriate for the time of year, had a great time while training with friends and stayed safe and motivated.
Want to join us next time? If you become a member of Performance Point you can join us anytime you want. We are going to make this a standard on bad weather weekends. If you don't want to become a member I'm sure we can arrange a drop in rate.
If we get enough people on their bikes there, soon we will end up with Computrainers.
Enjoy the weather.
