So you want to know what it is and why it helped me right? OK. I bought me a pair of Auvio Wireless headphones.
The way they help me is that I have attached them to my TV and now I can watch all my recorded shows and I do not have to have the volume up so loud that it keeps the house awake. My boys used to wake up and asked me if I could turn the TV down while I was riding on my trainer at night. You see, it was just easier on me and the family if I do trainer rides at night after everyone goes to bed. here are what hey look like.
Now, I may look goofy sitting on my bike in my living room wearing a bigger headset like this on my bike, but it sure makes it easier to talk myself into riding. It has been a few months, so the old butt needs the saddle time. I once read that Andy Potts does 80% of his training on a trainer, so there is no reason I shouldn't be able to supplement my training here when I can't get out.
In other news, I am officially signing up for the Memphis in May Olympic Triathlon tomorrow! The price goes up $30 is I wait past the 15th and I always kick myself for not registering for these races as early as I can to save some cash!
Thanks for reading and happy training!
