Not a ton of posting lately. A mix of ‘I’m too busy’ and ‘I have nothing going on’. The 2008-9 Holiday Cocktail Season is over. I’d like to say that with the snow days, it went exceptionally well. Moving on though…
I’m hearing and reading of others who are hitting the trainers right around now. For me at least, I’m in the pre-base or early base or whatever you want to call it where you just ride for a while with a couple intervals of moderate effort. Nothing big. Enough to break a sweat but not enough to feel it hours or days later.
Most of the shorter efforts I’ll just pop in a spinervals and go with it. For the longer ones, I need something different. Don’t get me wrong, I like Coach Troy, but a hour’s my limit. Anything over an hour needs a movie or something like that.
So what makes a good movie to ride to? An action flick is good, sci-fi would be a close second. With noisy trainers, something with limited amounts of down-time or soft dialog. A relatively obvious plot would help. Basically, I’d like to not think about the fact that I’m on a trainer but I don’t want to get too lost or else I’ll end up soft-pedaling.
So here is the inaugural trainer movie review….
