Murat crashes off the bike, riding in the house
I certainly realize that these charts induce drowsiness, but that's okay. I am awake enough for the two of us after this one hour death march on the rollers. What distinguishes tonight's balancing act is that I fell off! during the 36th minute. (see the sudden dip in the blue speed graph? oh and check the sudden spike in heart rate too in that instant) I put a bottle of water on the window sill to my left, instead of in the bike's bottle cage... Being conditioned to ride on the rollers [one handed] only with my left hand, when I tried to ride using only my right, the wheels went off the drums and landed on the hardwood floor. I braced myself on the window, spilling water everywhere in the process. No injuries, thank goodness. I managed to stay almost vertical, and got right back into it after taking a drink. That's the first time I've ever fallen off the rollers in the 17 years that I've owned them. I know of someone who died falling off of rollers.. Last night I dreamt that a giant airliner crashed into the neighborhood where I grew up, destroying all of the waterfront homes across the street from ours.. WTF?
