When I was attending the CT sessions at Incline training the owner was working with racermate on networked races between "teams". The idea was to have different computrainer host to complete.

We had also looked at the possibility of connecting to sessions that were out of the area from your home unit.

I'm going to do some digging. I like this idea.

I suffered a hell of a lot more than I should of during my 20' intervals today. Somethings not right, it might be the allergies.

Even though I went on the shots program after dying a thousand deaths last spring, I've recently found myself needing to take walzir each morning and a benydril each evening.

I hate oak trees.

There are seasons in texas?
----

Studying for an hour then heading to the gym for an hour. Plan is to be in bed by 11:30. I love toaster ovens. They mean that I can cook dinner while I'm in the shower.

More study intervals tomorrow night after work. This time I'll try not staying here till 11 though. The building security guard was pretty miffed when he saw me leaving as he was walking in. Didn't help that I was wearing a hoody, boots, and a huge ski jacket.

I live in Florida. We have seasons. Four of them to be exact.

Pollen (starts in January, runs to mid-March).
Summer (starts in mid-March, runs to May 1st).
Hell (starts on May 1st and runs to sometime around mid-October).
Hurricane (overlaps Hell by starting in July and running to December).

I forgot to add "Snowbirds who can't drive", which usually starts around Thanksgiving and runs to the first week or two of Summer.

Next time I come home *****ing about not feeling good and having a stomach ache, tell me STFU and HTFU and get on the bike. Came home from work feeling like crap as I often do for some reason, spent an hour on the trainer, I feel great. I'm slow as molasses in January, but that's ok. I've got 15 years to get fast.

I watched Top Gear and did (or tried to do) commercial intervals. BBC America has the longest commercials ever, I'm pretty sure. Bastards.

Couple of phone callls later and no one has anything out currently that will remote link CTs sessions. The local CT guru would love to find a way.

in my mind, the best kind of movies are the ones that make me go read encyclopedias and research for an hour or so.
I just finished "Endgame", on the secret talks which helped end apartheid.

Incredible film, go stream it on netflix.

I watched the first hour on the trainer last night - the end of it while eating dinner... and sitting around since then.
A very strong film.

now, to pack, clean, and put in trainer time.

Aha!!! I recently road the trainer in front of a tv and loved it. But, I'm not going to keep the bike there permanently. And, I'm not going to buy another tv for where I ride the trainer. But, I hadn't thought of streaming onto a laptop where the trainer is located. Brilliant! Thanks.

really crappy pic, but you get the point.
Yep, that's a fuzzy version of what I had in mind.

So you say after 2 1/2 hours it starts to hurt you. Do you have another bike (like a CAAD X?) to compare it to? I could ride my Six13 all day, I'm just curious is this rides similarly. The seat stays are pretty tiny, which would make you think it would ride OK. The top tube and down tube are pretty stout, though, so that might play into things.

How about the stiffness? Just curious in general.

I seem to have missed all the recent drama. I had a nice road trip holiday with the gf and ate lots of good food. I also did absolutely no bike riding. I will be even slower than usual. I'll need to be timed with a calendar.

Not sure how to feel about this one though, it was all pretty silly given that this is an internet forum and he could have just ignored anyone who he didn't want to respond to.
