Thursday: Bike 36 miles
I don't have anything on my bike to tell me the actual mileage it's doing on the trainer, so I've just been assuming an average of 16 mph. That's about what I was doing on the road before the weather turned unbikeable. But I really feel like I'm going faster than that now. Maybe today's two hour and 15 minute ride was really 40 miles. Maybe 45. Maybe 50! (Probably not 50.)
Whatever the distance, I can definitely feel myself getting better. I'm working out my saddle problems, too. Between the magic shorts and the Chamois Butt'r I got for Christmas and losing a few pounds and the used Adamo saddle I bought on eBay a while ago and getting my husband to tweak the position this way and that…well, 112 miles might actually be possible, from a sitting-that-long perspective.
Makes the aero position more
comfortable than sitting up. Weird.
I think the next thing I'm going to do is get my kids to film me on the trainer and then compare that to a video of someone demonstrating a correct bike fit. That should be interesting.
