|Last four 1 Hour Trainer Rides on Garmin Connect|
If nothing else I'm increasing my metabolism and burning calories with no risk of getting killed out on the road. I'm building a base and working toward losing those 20-lbs of extra fat that will keep me from being competitive.
Incidentally, I use a CyclOps JetFluid Pro trainer with the climbing block and training mat. A Cyclops Bike Thong is also a must. I'm not one who sweats a lot but without a fan to cool me off I tend to sweat a bit more than is probably good for my bike. I usually lay a few dry wash clothes over the thong to protect my bike even more and wipe the sweat from my face when needed. That's usually how I knock my glasses off of my head.

I'm still waiting to get into the water for the first time in months. Unlike 2013 I won't be focusing on the swim for Ironman Chattanooga. I swam over 100 miles in the open water that year with little improvement. My mechanics are too far gone to worry about. I'm a confident middle-of-the pack (MOP) swimmer so it's the bike and run where I'll put my attention during the next 12 months.
Thanks for reading.
