...while you are on the trainer? Watch a movie? Music? TV?

Since I don't have cable, but have a dvd player and a television, I think I am going to load up on some Warren Miller, TGR and MSP films! I know this is a triathlon forum, but I am stoked for my trainer to come and to get ready for the ski season!

WWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Movies... and i keep buying more and more DVDs under the guide of 'training aides'... Im not so popular when they are scattered all over the lounge room though...

I tried music but it just didnt distract me enough from the burning legs!

One word:

NETFLIX!

It will save you. All the movies you want, its so easy and fast. I don't have cable either (haven't for several years) but love Netflix. Makes the trainer time fly by; especially when you order the tv shows.

I used to need distraction to ride the trainer, but with a power meter and specific goals for workout it is fun just by itself and I'm 100% focused on what I'm doing. I work harder and actual improve on the bike in the off season. I realized last year training on the trainer how pathetic my time training had been previous years.

I like listening to the Endurance Planet and other sports related podcasts while on the trainer. Makes the time pass by, and gives me some great motivation. One movie suggestion that you may like as a trainer dvd is Running on the Sun. Very motivating!
