A friend was coming to pick up a piece of small furniture, and there wasn't time to go for a ride before her arrival. After that, there was less than an hour remaining before I was due to meet some other friends for lunch.
Lunch over, it was early afternoon, and the heat index was 100+. It's one thing to start a ride early and have it get that hot before I'm finished; but to start out in such heat might not be wise. I've landed in the ER for fluids before, and am not eager for a repeat performance. For one thing, it's a major pain in the pocketbook!
By about 3 pm, the sky was looking stormy again. I hooked the road bike into the CycleOps and "rode" for 15 minutes just to get my legs moving. I had to leave my cyclocomputer on "train" because the "indoor" setting apparently needs trainers that have the compatible software, or something like that. All this computerization stuff drives me crazy.
I wanted to go the the bike store where I bought my saddle, and get a new one. Luckily I thought to call them. They currently don't have the model I use in stock. They said to call back on Monday, and they'll order one for me.
Well, I sure hope I can get in a good ride tomorrow!! If the weather is too bad, fortunately I have access to a WattBike. I can go "ride", have a large fan aimed at me, and not have to worry that I'm disturbing the neighbors. Working out in the CycleOps can actually get pretty noisy, especially when I ratchet up my efforts.
