I have a secret...I'm not a huge fan of NFL football. While the majority of the country was watching the Super Bowl I watched some HGTV until I talked myself into a little workout. I had a movie from Netflix so I decided I would watch part of the movie while doing some bike trainer intervals.
I got on the bike at 8:02 and decided a 58 minute workout would be optimal (I'm a little behind on my time goal for the month so thought I could pick up some extra minutes!) While spinning in an easy gear I came up with my workout. Lesson learned...never trust your math while working out! I decided on a ladder that I thought would get me to 40 minutes of intervals and then my warm up and cool down time. It wasn't until after my second ladder that I realized my intervals were going to be short. My interval set was a decreasing time ladder with increasing resistance. Between each rung of the ladder I did a 1 minute standing run in my big chain ring. I started at 10 minutes and worked my way down by 2 minutes each ladder rung with a bonus extra 2 minutes at the end too.
You are probably wondering where my title post comes in? Well, the movie of choice for my ride tonight was Ironman 2. I know the movie came out a while ago but I'm a little slow sometimes. It was a good distraction for while I was on the bike. It didn't require any thought to follow the plot and I was able to stay interested and get the full workout in.
