Zwift is good for the social aspect, but thereís a lot to be said for structure. My biggest issue following the training plans is I want to go outside.This winter I plan to stick to the trainer unless I can do at least 40 outside.

Agree. But since most of my rides are group rides, the social aspect (or maybe just "accountability") seems to be a strong motivator to keep me on the trainer.

I actually prefer to ride outside and will do so even on our coldest days (low teens F) but if the roads are icy I won't risk it.

It was pretty awful. Iíve had bouts of minor dizziness in the past, but never been physically Iíll. I have pretty significant hearing loss in my right ear with no known cause, my pcp believes thatís what causes it, especially when itís allergy season and I get congested

Last winter Iíd go if it was over 10.

Yeah, I missed a LOT of rides the past two winters but really because of road conditions.

We seemed to be having a lot of nuisance snowstorms followed by daytime highs just barely above freezing and lows below freezing, which results in frozen runoff on the back-roads and the risk of ice scares the crap out of me.

Latest thinking about most common cause of vertigo is cellular debris in semicircular canals. When I was in medical school they told it usually was a viral cause, but the debris theory is probably closer to the mark.

Does the debris ever go away?

It either gets resorbed or you acclimate to it. That's why usually vertigo gets better with time and/or Epley maneuvers. But like most things in life, it's complicated and the debris/crystals theory is probably only part of the story.

And now, after a good night's sleep, I can still barely move. :50:

Helios Spherical is replacing a tired old non MIPS Giro Savant. Itís much more silvery in person than I expected but still a nice looking lid.

Thereís definitely a relationship between having full sinuses and my bouts of vertigo- assume Iím getting fluid build up which exacerbates the material issue.

Mrs. rjones28 moved the last of her frost-sensitive plants inside yesterday.

I checked the map. It's about normal for you to have first frost about now. For my area it's 10/16-10/31.

Normal timing? I ask because we are running almost two months early this year.

See above. Yes normal.

datlas 09-30-22 08:36 AM

My preference is for group road rides, but I will often prefer Zwift over riding solo on the road. The interaction with other riders in real time - even in a virtual world - is more motivational for me.
