Saturday Trainer Ride With Pharmie

>> Saturday, February 28, 2009

Pharmie and I had no alarm set this morning. Sweet. We laid (or lied, or lain, whatever...) in bed and talked for a bit, and then FINALLY got up to do a workout. Oh the joys of having no children!

We filled the little table between our bikes with our goodies:

About an hour into the ride, I grabbed a camera. Here’s Pharmie at work:

She snapped a photo of me:

(Oh yeah, and I’m rockin’ my new DeSoto tri top from Chris at 10:10 Wellness - I liked it! I think I’ll be wearing it for IM NO 70.3.)

I wrapped up after 2 hours, and promptly stretched, did some leg exercises, and killed half a Papa Murphy’s All Meat DeLITE pizza. Pharmie is still downstairs. Still on her bike. Still spinning away. GO PHARMIE!! She’s a rockstar.

Have a good weekend everyone!! (I really hope to have an IM COZ race course preview posted tomorrow - check back if you’re interested...)

Update: Pharmie just finished. She did over 4.5 hours on her bike. She's a machine.

OMG...4.5 hours on a bike. I would be dead. You guys are rock stars.

SWTrigal 3:18 PM, February 28, 2009  

You guys are nuts! I can barely survive a 2 hour spin class!

Nice ride to you both! ROCK ON!

Alisa 3:45 PM, February 28, 2009  

Great work rock stars!

Wow...Pharmie is a machine...4.5 hours...damn!

Pharmie 3:49 PM, February 28, 2009  

Uh, I think my actual time was just over 4 hours. The other minutes were spent playing with the DVD player and getting more food.

no kids? i forgot what that was like! 4.5 hours on a trainer? 5 hours last week? studs or nuts? hmmm its a fine line!

Lisa Slow-n-Steady 4:51 PM, February 28, 2009  

it's cool that you two can do that together.

Kelly 4:53 PM, February 28, 2009  

Nothing says post-workout like papa johns. Mmmmm...

That is some serious time on the trainer! Yay for both of you - but Pharmie gets and extra YAY and also a WOO HOO for riding that long and smiling that big! (That is not the expression on my face after even only a fraction of that time on the bike trainer!)

Jen 5:36 PM, February 28, 2009  

You two are the cutest! Way to go!!

Adam 5:47 PM, February 28, 2009  

Wow! So, you did 2 hours.... I hope that you had a movie going or something!

And Pharmie did 4+!?

X-Country2 5:56 PM, February 28, 2009  

I've said this before, but I think it's so cool that you two do stuff like this together. You're both lucky to have each other. :o)

I Run for Fun 6:41 PM, February 28, 2009  

I am a little jealous right now... Wish I could share workouts with my hubby the way you do with Pharmie. You guys are too good...there's no way I could survive that long on a bike.

Judi 6:48 PM, February 28, 2009  

her ass is broken, for sure.

Michelle 7:22 PM, February 28, 2009  

My goodness what great couples time for you both!!!

Still your both a bit crazy but in a GOOD WAY!!!!

t-odd 7:51 PM, February 28, 2009  

4.5 hours on the trainer seems mind numbing - maybe I could do it if a) I had 4.5 hours to devote to it, b) I wasn't doing it alone, and c) it wasn't on my trainer in the basement - Spring please come soon.

Beth 8:04 PM, February 28, 2009  

A new ride and new togs! Nice.

Amber 8:04 PM, February 28, 2009  

She must have buns of steel to stay on the bike that long. Holy crap.

Marlene 8:46 PM, February 28, 2009  

I agree re: joy of having no kids. Lazy weekend mornings = bliss!

Good job to both of you!

joyRuN 2:30 AM, March 01, 2009  

You two are cute. Insane. But cute.

Lazing about in bed, eh? Wouldn't know what that's like!

I love the cookie monster photo in the last post

lindsay 10:27 AM, March 01, 2009  

how does she do it?!? i need her secret tips!!

mthead 11:49 PM, March 01, 2009  

Nice job, but consider moving out west where the cycling is good year round and there is always a need for professors and pharmies!

cdnhollywood 7:12 AM, March 02, 2009  

So far, I haven't made a 5hr ride since having kids. Haven't even done 2hrs...well, not without "Daddy? Where's my playdoh?" "Daddy? When will you be done?" "Daddy! GO FASTER! FASTER!"

I don't mind the last one so much. :D

Amy 1:54 PM, March 02, 2009  

What is Pharmie training for? She is a machine. Job well done to both of you.
