Hi! So Christmas came early for me - my fisherman gave me a bike trainer! He is the sweetest fisherman out there. It's a CycleOps Mag trainer and it's sa-weet. I rode it for 30 minutes on Sunday and quickly realized that I am out of bike shape. The trainer is going to get a lot of use this winter to get me back into some kind of bike shape...as much as a trainer can get you in shape, riding to no where... with no wind...
I am house sitting in Seattle until January 12th, so I brought the trainer down here with me to ride in nice open living room. Well, that didn't work too well. I am also dog sitting and the dog is a scardy-cat and sunk his head, threw his tail between his legs and ran off whimpering when I got on the trainer this morning. Guess I won't be riding it until after the 12th... I've never seen a dog so scared before. I know it came from a rough background, but wow. I took it for a walk and we happened to walk by one of those blow up Santas and the dog had the same reaction to the Santa as it did the trainer. Weird.
Anyway, keeping my running up for the most part. Trying to get more than 20 miles per week. Really just trying to run enough to burn off the cookie/sweet calories I'm consuming. I'm trying to not feel guilty about the sweets anymore cause then I just feel, well, guilty. So I just eat, then I run.
How are your Holiday workouts going??
