Not alot to report today, jumped on the trainer and watched my climbing DVD. Showed some slight improvement in average speed, average heart rate, distance, etc. Just happy to be able to say I made progress. I'll really know how much progress in two-and-a-half weeks when we go to Marion to ride up to Mt. Mitchell. The trainer is a great tool, but it is not the road. The truth is told out on the asphalt and the hills. But I know I am better prepared than I would be otherwise. Be blessed, be safe.
