I’m in training. Pfft! Right.

Merkin is going to AZ for El Tour de Tucson later this month, and BratzBasher and I have opted to do the stay-at-home version.  Merkin will be biking 110 (or is it 111?) miles, while BB and I will be doing 110 minutes on the stationary bikes at the gym.  Merkin has been doing some serious training for this — as much as time allows, at any rate.  BB and I can do an hour — no problem.  We’re working up to the two-hour mark.

I’m actually pretty confident that I can do two hours (a record for me), but I need to find a way to combat the boredom.  The gym has televisions, but there’s never anything good.  I wonder if Merkin can put a movie on my Zune.  So far, I’m just listening to books on audio, but I’m used to doing something while I listen.  Something with my hands, that is.  I’m not nearly coordinated enough to crochet while biking, and reading while biking gives me motion sickness.  Yeah, I know the bike isn’t going anywhere, but I’m still moving.  What would you do in my place?  Anyone got any ideas?  Origami?  How many paper cranes do you think I could make in two hours while riding a stationary bike?

I need a shower.  And sleep.  I’ll blog more later.
