Yet another reason I luv/hate my Garmin

Given the 2 ft. of snow and more ice on the way I've rediscovered my old (read 1980's) wind trainer. I had been using my Garmin to record time and HR data, but had not messed with the built in "Workouts" feature.

Did that this afternoon,.... holy cow! The "Speedplay" work out is quite wicked... helps to visualize Jillian Michaels when the darn thing is saying speed up too!!!

Is she kinda like a carrot on a stick? That could motivate me.

Sorry guys but if she was in front of my trainer I'd be getting sweaty another way.

I don't know what you guys are talking about (he says as his wife looks on). I simply find her style of coaching to be quite motivational.
