Glad to have an indoor trainer on a cold day like today.

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

There were no excuses today.

It was really cold outside, so I didn't really feel like going outside today - at all.

It would have been soooo easy to curl up with a good book and snuggle under a blanket with a nice cup of hot cocoa (I still might do that - later).

But with my Specialized set up on my indoor trainer, and knowing I have a big weekend of sking coming up (I almost went out skiing tonight - that's another story), I know I need to work to get my cardio endurance back to where it was about a month ago.

So I got on the bike and rode pretty hard for about 30 minutes. Now I'm sooo glad I overcame the temptation not to exercise. It's nice to have several fitness machines in the apartment - it makes it that much harder to come up with excuses.

    Good for you! It is easy to feel lazy when it's cold outdoors.
(It's sure cold here today... -2F already and it's only 3:00 PM. Indoor trainers are life savers!)

    I so get this!
Sometimes indoors is the only way that I will last longer than 10 minutes. And I don't get nearly as grumpy.....

    Me too, I have a treadmill, a bike, a stair-stepper, a Bowflex plus weights, bands, and a Wii. Have to have all that stuff in rural MN. Roads are too bad to go to a gym in the winter.
