Spin Cycle

I decided that tonight was definitely a cross-training (read: trainer ride) kind of night since it's pretty cold and crappy outside.  I'm really loving having the bike/trainer combo in the basement for days like these. It allows me to get a workout in without having to leave the house and, as a bonus, I got some laundry done in the process.

I threw in a load of clothes, got my laptop set up so I could watch and episode of Sex and the City while I rode, climbed on the bike, turned on my Garmin, and discovered that the battery was pretty much dead!

I ran upstairs, threw it on the charger and waited 20 minutes, hoping it would charge up enough to get through a short ride. I had really been hoping to ride for about 45 minutes, but decided that in the interest of eating dinner before 8pm that I'd cut it short.

With my semi-juiced Garmin in hand, I returned to the basement, hopped on my bike, and proceeded to pedal for the next 30 minutes.  One episode of SATC later, my laundry and my workout were done!
