I had a bit of an interesting experience on the trainer today. I had to remount my bike in the trainer after my ride outside last Thursday. I tightened the resistance screw on the trainer and hopped on. As soon as I started pedaling, I knew that I tightened the screw more than usual. I figured that this would do me some good because I was going to have to push harder than normal.
After a couple minutes though, I noticed a funky smell. And no, it wasn’t me. I stopped and found that my rear tire was really hot. I realized that I was literally burning rubber. Whoops!
I loosened up the resistance a bit to where it normally is and finished up my ride.
I did 70 minutes with 9x1min at Z5 with 2 min active recovery between intervals. It was a great workout and I really felt like I was pushing it hard on my intervals.
Now, it is time to continue watching The Office and hopefully doing a bit of stretching and core workout.
