Set up the bike trainer, that is.
The bike trainer was upstairs in the unheated part of the house... buried under years of treasures that have been stuffed into one tiny room because of the floor restoration folks being here.
My bike was out in the garage. Again, unheated and a fair amount of snow to plod through to go get it.
Now, my bike sits proudly on my husband's trainer. I gave it a nice, easy whirl last night for about a half hour. My left knee protested a little, but got over it.
So now, like I my house, the bike trainer sits in the living room. No matter what, I have to look at it. I already hung my coat on it today. I chuckled to myself when I did that thinking about all the stories I've heard of fitness equipment becoming clothing racks.
I really want to get to the base again today and run because I'm guessing the temperature will not go above my threshold 20 degrees for outdoor running. I am supposed to meet my new swim partner this evening as well, so 2 trips to the base today potentially.
Husby just texted and said he doesn't have a crew today and will be home in a bit. He hinted to me the other day that he wanted to get in better shape. I will encourage him to come with me to the base at lunch and walk on the treadmill while I run. I told him once the weather gets better I'll come down to town in the evenings and walk or bike with him. I think he wants to do it, but doesn't know how.
We tried the sparkpeople "alfredo" last night. My husband, who is very much italian, LOVED it! He said definitely make again! :) He is such a picky eater that it thrills me when I find something he likes.
Ok friends, I need to get working.
Stay warm today!
