I use the sufferfest video's which work brilliantly to alleviate the boredom for an hour. Any more than that though and I lose the will to live

I'll be honest it does me to, but if I don't then I will lose a week maybe two's worth of training and I can't afford that

Another 20 miler on the turbo yesterday morning.
Having the cadence sensor set up on my Garmin makes a hell of a difference, allows you to target the ride a lot more.
Wanted to get out on the roads, but there was still some surface ice/slush yesterday morning, so decided that the turbo was the sensible choice.

I can manage up to 1hr 30mins on the turbo trainer, with resistance set approximately to flat road riding, covering just over 25 miles, but usually do 45 min stints on it.

I have an old TV and DVD player in the man cave, and watch old Tour de France footage, otherwise I wouldn't last 20mins. I suppose rollers are better than the turbo for longer indoor rides, better movement I think - not as static.

Coming back from a bout of flu at the moment and did 45 mins yesterday, quite slow though

Cheers
Mike
