A Little Bit Felt Like Much Less
I am in utter shock at the fact that today has me entering my sixth day off the bike. I can not remember the last time I spent this long off the bike. It REALLY sucks. Not just being off the bike, but NO training what-so -ever! No core, no cross training, not one sweat had! My body was just destroyed by this flu funk I got.
I did actually spin my legs for about 5 minutes on the trainer just to remind them of why they're attached to my torso. I had planned on going for 30 to 45 minutes, but my heart rate monitor refused to work properly and even though I was not really using it to monitor my HR today, but just for time, it was driving me CRAZY!! First I could NOT get a signal *NO SIGNAL* *NO SIGNAL* NO SIGNAL* flashing over and over as I tried to get it going. I swear to God I wanted to smash it with a hammer (and still might!). FINALLY I got a signal, starting spinning and noticed that no matter how fast I went my heart rater would hover at around 113 max.... so I stated pedaling harder and saw it go DOWN to 108!!
Can someone, somebody, something, MAKE A F*CKING HEART RATE MONITOR THAT WORKS!!! I can't even begin to tell you how much hate I have for heart rate monitors right now (Sigma monitors in particular). And while I'm throwing hate around... To person that passed this viral germ to me and brought my training to a dead 1 hour and zero miles on the week stop I salute you with multiple middle fingers, and f-bombs.
OK, glad I got all that out of my system.
