This was supposed to be yesterdays workout, but alas, mi vida loca popped up again and I worked from sunup to sundown (literally, uphills both ways as well) and didn’t get it in. The conditioning workout was supposed to be 15 40-meter sprints, but my knees are flaring up so I decided to go with the bike instead.
After a recent post by OPT on his site about the Schwinn Airdyne being one of the most badass piece of equipment ever (and not-so-affectionately dubbed “The Devil’s Tricycle” in his gym) I thought maybe it would be a fitting substitution.
Now that it’s over, let’s just say that I totally agree with the associations with the lord of the underworld. Ouch. I’d hate to do that for all of eternity.
