309.jpgOoooh-eee. Look at the new little addition to the house! We made an impulse buy last night! It’s a Cycle Ops Fluid 2 Trainer.

Usually when I have a bike ride on my schedule during the middle of the week I have to take Annabelle. There isn’t enough sunlight to ride in the morning before Troy heads to work, and there isn’t enough in the evening either. So I have to ride during the day with Annabelle. Sometimes this happens, sometimes not...yesterday...not-so-much. Annie has her own agenda nowadays so there are days that we don’t make it out of the house.

So yesterday...it got dark and I still hadn’t completed my scheduled ride. What to do...what to do...time to impulse buy a trainer.

After consulting Steve I decided this is the trainer I wanted. It wasn’t on sale at performance, but it was at REI. I also had a 15% coupon that I had been waiting to use, so we were able to get a good deal on it.

We came home and Troy set it up. I rode for an hour and then Troy had to ride for an hour. I have a feeling that the neighbors in the apartment below might start to hate us! Actually it’s really quiet and I’m not sure if they can hear anything.

So yeah, we are all giddy and excited about being able to ride indoors now. And we must be total triathlon geeks because we stayed up way too late riding our bikes!

Woot Woot!
