    Mine delivered today. Was supposed to be a surprise for my wife but they came 30 minutes early before she left for work. Obviously still surprised. Sent out a note yesterday that they can’t come in the house for COVID reasons. I find that responsible but also sucks. I’m going to have get this downstairs.

    Just had ride #50 a couple days ago. Did a quick spreadsheet with some of the stats from each ride to find out what instructors/music motivate me the most. Got the bike MLK day and I think I’ve rode 5x each week. Definitely worth the money - the convenience factor is worth it alone. I probably hadn’t worked out more than 1x per week since 2013, so that’s a drastic change in habits. Plus it guilt trips me every time I see it and I haven’t rode yet that day, “you can’t find 30 minutes to ride this thing you’re a POS”, then I ride and then I feel good.

    that was me the first 6 to 7 months I had the bike. I would look at the bike and tell myself how can I spend that much and not ride. I still ride a lot but the guilt has gone away.

    i'm talking about something like this for a laptop:

    my friend has one and she says it's good. but she's also pretty tired so i wonder what it'd be like for someone with larger legs, etc. she says the laptop doesn't slide or fall but i'd love to hear from someone itt.

    I feel like I’d want a recumbent for that type of setup.

    The first ride at the new studio with Robin was great. Music was awesome.

    Wondering how many instructors won't be there for a while. Doesn't Dennis live in Florida? Or some others who commute in for periods at a time?

    I only ride with three instructors: Alex, Denis and Ben.

    It all depends on my mood and energy level. Ben if I want a chill ride, Denis if I need a kick I’m the ass and Alex when I’m completely motivated and want to break a PR.

    They all live in New York unless they are overseas.

    Not sure how they will break up the classes with them scaling back on the live rides if not completely wiping them out with the problems New York is having.

    I realize this is not the time to complain, but they need more outdoor running classes - especially in light of what is going on in the world. Two 30 minute hip-hop classes is unacceptable.

    Trying to cast to TV using Roku. I haven’t had any luck with Roku Express. Thinking about buying the stick. Anyone have an experience with anything that works well? One of the reasons I bought was to cast “other” classes.

    PR'd on Ally Love's 30 minute HITT and Hills ride yesterday. Was brutal but she organizes her rides so well. They are tough but very manageable.

    Ran 2.5 miles in 19:36 today. Ran out of gas at the end and decided to puss out instead of going for the full three. Getting too damn hot out here already.
