Easy spinning & rowing…boring

That’s about it.  I got on the rowing machine for 15 minutes and then got on the bike trainer.  Took it as a recovery spin, with low resistance and high RPMs: 105 – 110 RPMs.

Read through the most recent USAT pub while on the bike.  Not a lot of meat in there.  One item on nutrition caught my eye: specifically the suggestion that one take a gel while running from the water to T1.  That might make sense for IM distance events, but anything shorter and I think it’s not a good idea.  I try to minimize all tasks during transition; keep it simple.  If I felt I needed a gel right out of the water, and I haven’t yet felt this necessary, then I’d have it on my bike and take it as soon I was into a rhythm.
