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!
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!
