With all the snow/ice we've been getting up here, it's been quite difficult to keep on track with getting in the mileage that we want each week. Luckily, we have our indoor bike trainers right in our apartment that make it SO easy to get in a hard cross-training workout. On nights where I get home late from work/school, and it's snowing and icy out, and running isn't an option and the trek to the gym isn't too enticing, it's so nice to have the opportunity to just hop on the trainer and ride for an hour or so. And we definitely get a solid workout in. 10 minutes in, sweat is pouring off of us. And all the while, we get to watch TV while working out. Some of our guilty pleasure TV shows are Teen Mom, How I Met Your Mother, and Tosh.0. Lately we've been getting in a couple episodes while riding together, and it's nice.
However, the bike trainers and our bikes do take up quite a bit of room in our small Boston apartment. So in the space that should really be our dining room, we have our bikes. :) And that's fine with us. We eat dinner on a tiny table every night. Priorities. :)
Guess which one is Miss Bethany's
Lovie bikes. Side-by-side.
(Ok, so we don't normally eat on this small table, we typically eat at a table twice this size, but we have some roof/ceiling issues in our apartment with some leaking in our bedroom due to the snow/ice up there, so we've had to move everything from our bedroom into our living room, so it's kind of a mess in there now.)
The Boston Marathon countdown has begun! Hope you guys are getting excited!
