Massive rain storm hitting California is the biggest news story here. It is pretty bad, as the Santa Cruz mountains getting 5-6 inches of rain in a day. I’m on call, so at least the rain didn’t impede on my free time. This just means it’s time to break out the trainer, and do a bit of workout on Zwift.
I didn’t realize that the previous time I used Zwift, it was a trial coordinated by Strava. I also forgot my password, so I tried to get them to reset it, but was waiting and waiting for the reset email, but it never came through. Screw it … get a new one, using an email address I never use.
Now I remember why I didn’t use Zwift for awhile … it’s hard to stay motivated to stay on the trainer that long. First, I have riders passing me all the time. I mean, it’s at a rate 3 times what would normally happen if I’m on the road. Then, after some time, I start sweating so much … sweat gets in my eyes. It got to a point where I couldn’t take it any more … only stayed on the trainer for 20 minutes, and only 5.3 miles. I later saw some others, who was taking the same Zwift course, who lasted an hour. How the heck do they do it? I guess I’m not disciplined enough, eh?
At least I was able to say I did some riding … the Raiders game was a lost hope anyways.
I have been considering taking the Zwift plunge. I pulled 2 hours on the trainer Saturday, but I was lucky that I had TONS of back episodes on my DVR as it was dull. I think I need to set up a fan to simulate a light breeze so the sweat dries, as I was drenched. At least you got some trainer time in, some is better than none
I use movies instead to distract me, but thus far, my longest has only been 50 minutes.
That’s a lot longer than I can last on the trainer.
It takes the right movie. Explosions, super heroes, swords etc…
So in other words, Game of Thrones season finale.
