Magnum and the Trainer

No its not me. Only how I appear in my own mind, 6-4 with a great body and a semi-cheesy mustache.

Actually, Thomas is a good friend of mine as I do my riding indoors during the cold weather. Today he and I prevented a heist of Robin Master's art work in Tropical Madness. A typical episode lasts abot 45 minutes and that is great work out at the end of the day. Currently, I am sticking to about 10 miles of spinning and that allows me cool off as I watch the last 10-15 minutes of the show.

On the weekend when I am doing my long rides I can watch 2 episodes and get in about 90 minutes of riding and I am completely entertained. There is no need for me to ride longer than that right now.

So my advice to those of you out there that have been asking for ideas on what to watch during these cold wet winter days is to either buy or join Netflix and get your favorite TV shows. However, if you are riding for 2-3 hours I would recommend Doctor Zhivago. Julie Christie is flatout HOT!!!

This is a really timely post b/c I was just thinking I need WAY better spinning material to watch. My cable SUCKS!! Hmmm...I think we share different tastes in shows :) but I will have to work on making better stuff available to me! Happy training!

I tend to get dizzy watching TV on my trainer ... back when I used my trainer that is :) I used to pass the time watching concert videos, so I could either watch or listen. Either way I was good for an hour and that was about it!
