What do you need to get through three hours on the trainer? (For the record, the longest trainer session I've ever done was 5.5 hours... but that was training for Ironman and the weather was horrid. I certainly don't have the mental fortitude to do that right now). You need lots of fluids, snacks, a towel, a fan - especially on a hot day like today. This time I wasn't doing this workout to avoid riding outside in bad weather, I was doing it because I needed to. I have one more event this year, a century at the end of the month in Nevada. I needed a workout to kick my ass, and this one does just that.
So here is what three hours on the trainer look like:
|Hour Zero. Smiling. Not sure why,|
I know what's coming!
|Hour One. Still smiling. Must be delirious.|
|Hour Three. Done.|
