I think I've found my new calling. Online poker while on a fluid trainer. Couldn't imagine doing this on rollers. Got the laptop setup on a high counter where I can just reach out and hit the function keys and make the bets.

Much better than playing madden as I don't end up with the crick in the neck from having to watch the screen 100% of the time.

Anyone else?

I'm not a poker player, but I do play a lot of Xbox when I have to do a long, slow, easy day on the trainer. Usually it's a racing game or Halo 2 though. Nothing like trying explain to people on Xbox Live that you are not breathing like a pervert on the telephone, you're just a little winded from riding your bike while playing video games... "heh... heh... heh... heh... heh... heh..."

If you are able to do anything like that on a trainer, you're going way too slow.

Well, it depends on what your supposed to do that day. Training schedules etc. anything in zone 2 is really easy. This time of year really you should still be slogging on the base miles. Atleast I should. So I'm told. That's what I hear. YMMV. Etc, etc.

A trainer workout should mimic the time your supposed to be doing on the road. Atleast I should. So I'm told. That's what I hear. YMMV. Etc, etc.
