Why is it that I find it harder to spin on my home bike trainer than at spin class at Lifetime Fitness (which in turn is harder than actually riding a bike outside)? Maybe my home spin trainer needs to be calibrated or something. I have the simplest of trainers; there is nothing to calibrate!! Anyway, I spun on the trainer for a little more than an hour today. I made the mistake of positioning my trainer so I can look out the window from one of our bedrooms not realizing that it will take the brunt of the HOT evening sun in Arizona. Sweat was pouring off my body like water off Niagara Falls!
As my Ironman Arizona nears, my training continues to get more and more intense. Finishing an Ironman is as much a mental exercise as it is a physical one. See the image below; I need to heed the advice.
