I belong to the Junior League and tonight was our final meeting for the league year. Unfortunately this meant that I couldn't go to the Tuesday night group bike ride. Booo! It was a lot of fun to see all my league friends but it meant that I had to make up my bike ride with a trainer workout.
I got on the trainer without a plan. I had the TV turned on and was watching Chopped on the Food Network. I started with an easy warmup and figured things out as I went along. The first commercial break came up and so I decided to take things up a notch and do intervals. I got into a harder gear and originally started out with doing several commercials at the top and then coming down a bit for the next 2-3 commercials. When the show started back up, I returned to my easy gear and just had an easy spin with a good cadence. The next round of commercials I just stayed in the hard gear for as long as I could.
It was a good set with most of the commercial breaks lasting about 3-4 minutes and then 6 minutes of the show. I got a total workout of one hour and felt like I could have kept going. I only wish I could have started earlier so that I could have done a short run after to get a brick workout in but The Voice was on by the time I finished. If you are watching The Voice, whose team are you rooting for? They are all so different and so far I'm really liking the show!
