Nice ride tonight. I had originally planned to come home, change quickly, then head out for an hour on the road. When I arrived home there were some complications, and I had forgotten to pick up a couple of the ingredients for dinner.
Instead I opted for a trainer ride after a light dinner. Another good workout. I did a 4 minute warm up, 1 hour ride, then a few minutes of cool down.
While spinning I can zone out pretty nicely and just think about stuff. The downside is that when I am not paying attention, my effort wanes as well, and I find myself not working as hard as I should be. Tonight was no different, but I was trying to be more cognizant of what my body was actually doing.
One of the thoughts I had was that the prep I am doing for the Tour de Victoria ride is having an awesome side-effect. My drive to ride has certainly increased. I find myself thinking about riding more often. I just want to ride again. The last few years have seen my riding diminish a little, but now I want to start riding regularly again. It's good for me, and when I hit the trails, I can take Heart too.
