WHOOO!! All Aboard!!

ALL ABOOOOAAAAARD! The Pain Train is ready for departure. Please have your water bottles filled, your comfiest bike shorts on, a towel on hand for the profuse sweat, and your heart rate monitor turned on... Chugga-chug-chug-chug-chugga-chugga-chug!! WHOOOOO-WHOOOOOO!!

Today's workout was so very awesome-- thanks Shannon, for the train analogy -- it is so true!! I biked two hours with a main set of: 2 sets of 5 with 3 min. at 170-185 Watts, and then 2 min. at 100-110 Watts. This was a big increase for me -- my first workout at this power output level and I loved it! I felt really strong and enjoyed the challenge. It was hard work, but not so hard that I collapsed afterwards -- it just really pushed me. I prefer this type of strength training!! :) :) :)

Peanut decided to try out her new bike too -- but it is invisible!! She was able to get in a pseudo-aero position for a little while -- it was hard work!!!! Hahahahaha!! It's not "The Nut" but I love this picture anyways!! LOL!
