The temperature has been dipping these past few days in Massachusetts. By no means is it cold yet. I am still wearing shorts when I am running. I will wear shorts the whole winter if I can help it.
Training for Boston last year, running during a storm.
But biking....that is a whole different story. I have tried riding in under 40 degree weather and it is not fun for me. My raynaud's syndrome goes into overdrive and my fingers and toes go numb pretty fast because of the wind. Riding with numb toes is not fun. Enter my new bike trainer...
I somehow got lucky and a doctor my sister works with offered her his barely used bike trainer. My sister knew I had a winter of biking ahead of me and not a lot of money to buy a nice trainer so she jumped on it. I was SO happy and SO thankful!
My trainer is a Kinetic by Kurt Road Machine. I plan on having a review of the Kinetic by Kurt in a few months after I get some miles on it. I did use it today for an hour. It was a great workout. It seems quieter than what I have heard most trainers seem to be and was pretty easy to set up.
I would say, bring on the winter, but I would love for some warm days to keep happening. I am not ready to head to my garage for hours on end of treadmilling and biking. But, at least I am ready.
