The torture device
Me, suffering torture
Last year, I learned to ride the rollers after having had a bad experience trying it out with Teri and Serene (apparently, rollers for idiots aren't for all idiots!). After a few goes at it, I went back to the trusty trainer - it was just easier for me.
This year my new coach (aka, the torturer) declared that I would ride the rollers. He even went so far as to buy me a new set - parabolic rollers that came from Nashbar. So, I tried it again, and have completely given up the trainer. While I can't do any roller tricks, I have managed to be able to ride one handed, grab my water bottle, drink, and replace it, and am working on the no hands riding that Mike makes look so easy. I will admit, it is a better workout than I ever got on the trainer, but after an hour, it really is just torture!
