Webb: Such an awesomely painful turbo session. I posted not long ago about doing this workout and my experience didn't vary much. It was nice to have my suffer-partner alongside me this time. I love it when TheSufferfest commands you onscreen to go HARDER and I can hear Elle's windtrainer kick up. I'm on a fluid trainer so I get to fake it with well-timed grunting and cursing.
Elle: It's always great to be back in Sufferlandria. And equally great to leave...
Webb: Ha ha! Elle Schlecked on a trainer!
Elle: It's true, mid-way through the workout I pulled a Schleck, and dropped my chain. I guess I was pretty excited to be shifting from my big chain ring to the small one. And I would have thought that Contad... I mean, Webb would have showed some freaking sportsmanship and waited for me, but no, he took the opportunity to surge ahead. I guess the yellow jersey was calling his name...
Webb: I've mentioned before how good the music is, but I sometimes wonder if it isn't just about the tempo or energy. On interval 2/8 of the second set, there is a song called "You Don't Know Me," by Art of Dying. I actually thought to myself,
This type of workout can teach you something about yourself - as you are dying.
And then I nearly forgot myself all over the floor during interval 3/8.
Elle: So, as you can see from the photo, without a lot of room for Sufferlandria, I sit pretty close to the TV. Webb is to my left. That's how we roll.
Webb: This is going to be the best Chanukah evah!
