Let’s do another fun post! What do you say we talk a little about the madness that is caused by training indoors.
Living in Wisconsin and training for triathlon has presented some really interesting challenges. For one, training outdoors is near impossible from late October until, well, about now. I just started running outside again. I’m still a little afraid to ride outside because I feel like the windchill will likely kill me.
Anyway, this winter while training inside, I found lots of new fun things to do while I was on the bike. First, it started as dancing on the treadmill while I ran. I would get to a song that really made me happy and I would start bopping my head, followed by running side to side with the music and ending up dancing on the treadmill. Odd strike patterns, running on my toes, running sideways . . . It was all fun and all caused by the madness of training inside so much.
Then, as you can see in the video above, I started getting bored on the bike. During our training sessions, we would be on the bike for hours listening to music. I started singing along or lip syncing the songs, then it turned into a really fun ideas to start recording myself doing so.
Seriously, how do people deal with this and not go totally insane?
Hope you enjoy my ridiculousness!
