Adrenaline Junkie

I didn't feel like driving back to the city so I stayed out in Greenwich. That meant 60 minutes on a stationary bike rather than the spin bike (or my own bike - what I really should be training on but more on that later). The bike is boring. But fortunately there was an interesting show on the Travel Channel to keep me company - "Jack Osbourne Adrenaline Junkie." Basically the show is two trainers beating the daylights out of Jack to get him ready to climb El Capitan. I have to say I did sympathize with him as he climbed a snowy mountain in the Alps. it reminded me of that dreadful kayak trip in Brazil when I basically gave up. But after four hours I eventually made it to land. If Jack Osbourne can climb a mountain I can do a triathlon.
