My most recent attempt at alleviating trainer boredom has been to try rollers for the first time (borrowed from a fellow BF denizen whose handle I can never recall for the mention). For the time being at least, it's anything but boring. I can finally stay up for a few minutes at a time, but my shoulders are still tense and my eyes are glued to the front wheel. Not sure I'll ever cook while riding rollers.
