This past weekend was hard for me. It was raining cats and coyotes outside, forcing me to do my least favorite athletic activity: ride the wind trainer. The Six Hours of Warrior Creek is coming up in a few weeks and I've paid my cash to ride all six hours solo. Bottom line is I needed the saddle time and had to get it in somehow. I was just recovering from a nasty, horrific upper respiratory infection and plague, so there was no way I was going to ride for hour upon hour in the rain.
So into the basement I went. Pookie joined me. Side-by-side on our bikes, pedaling to nowhere watching Jack Bauer and 007. Both Saturday and Sunday. It was boring, but we got through it.
I wore my Garmin both days with the GPS disabled, allowing it to record time and heart rate data for posterity. Today I attempted to download the two rides to Motion Based so I could feel a swell of self-confidence when I looked at the hours I put in despite the weather. But the Garmin Gods have frowned on me. I tried several times, but I think because there is no GPS data, Motion Based won't recognize the activity as legit.
Deflated. I want to see the hours that I slaved away on that confounded CycleOps torture device! Blasted gadgetry!
