I want to buy my first indoor trainer.... reasonably affordable, I don't want to waste money on junk but I definitely would like to spend under $200 max (is that even possible??)
Looking for some suggestions, pros/cons, etc.
Please help a girl out :)
Just a quick note to all to use common sense and be ready for the heat. Here are a few reminders that will help allow you to train through the hot hot hot summer.
By all means, DO continue to train. Remember that training in adverse conditions for sure makes us better rounded and prepared for the great unknown of what mother nature will dole out on any given race day. But use common sense: it's free and almost always right.

I have seen many articles and blog posts in my day about what makes a good coach. What he, she should be doing, not doing, etc. And, for the most part, they are all pretty valid. The topic is also one sure to attract lots of attention. Picking a coach is tough. I know, I have done it myself!…Continue
the good news is I woke up 3 days in a row and fought the urge to go back to bed and did a workout. The bad news is i did them all inside. It is just too dark and cold at 6:30 to go and run much less ride. I will get there but right now it's just too much of a hassle to get my gloves/hat/jacket/long sleeve shirt/sweatpants all together and on my tired body to go outside and enjoy the frost. so for now it's just me staring at wall dreaming of the summer sun.

While you read these entries you may find yourself saying "hey that sounds familiar..." and even if the exact scenario or method isn't similar to yours the concepts may be. Please feel free to read between the lines and leave some good constructive comments;…Continue
