The weekend was a double bike weekend. I'm actually really happy Steph has me biking as much as she does because lord knows I need it! Saturday I ended up going to the gym but I told myself I would set up my trainer by the end of the day. For goodness sakes I'd had it for over a week and still hadn't moved it. Plus I have a membership to two different gyms but there are times when I just don't want to be around people, or share equipment, I know, I'm such a brat! But really. So Sunday morning I did my first ride on the trainer. It went really well, plugged in my pandora and just let it go for 2 hours, feeling out the switching of gears and being on my bike for 120 minutes. I'm not gonna lie, I had every intention of going to the gym after that ride but, much like Steph told me, I was tired, my legs were tired and I didn't feel like doing anything extra. So I called it a day. But made sure to have a recovery drink :)

Now, in closing, I would like to acknowledge that I respected my rest day on Monday, mostly because by the time I got off work I ended up passing out for a nap BUT! It was so hard to not feel like I was losing a day of fitness, or that I was getting "weak". Which is why I guess with training, the physical activity is only half the battle.
