Today at lunch I’m having my initial baseline testing done on the Computrainer. I’m a little nervous as it presents “test anxiety” and, therefore, “performance anxiety.” I want to ride strong, but not blow it all out too quickly. (Now I know how guys feel) Apparently, it will show me everything I need to know about kicking butt on the Ironman Coeur D’Alene course. Well…maybe not kicking butt…but finishing with enough dignity to put together a decent marathon after 112 hilly miles on the bike. I’m anxious for the information and hope I don’t fail the test. The information will be used in subsequent rides as I plan on riding the CDA course on the computrainer at least once a month until the big day.
One thing I want to know is: Does it tell you how to make your butt stop hurting from being in the saddle that long?
