Virtually dropped??

So back in like April my husband found this super awesome deal on a Tacx trainer. He couldn’t resist it so I gave in and we now own this pseudo virtual reality trainer.

My bike all hooked up!
Understand, we are not hardcore triathletes by any means. Typically, I dislike the trainer but I enjoy catching up on movies and stuff when I’m on it. This trainer however, adjusts based on the route so it makes me also pay attention to what I’m actually doing. Can you believe that?! I have to actually try when I’m training on the trainer, this is crap!

Anywho, the other day Jon shows me how to hook all the electronics up on my own. Then he says the most fateful sentence! “Just remember virtual rides aren’t no drop, they will leave you”

WTF? The virtual riders will peace out on me! That is one of the reasons I hate group riding cause someone is always that person that holds the leader back and it tends to be me! SOOO you are telling me that even the damn virtual rider thinks I’m too slow, this is crap!

DISCLAMIER: He is requiring this so I don’t make him look like an ass. He did correct himself later and told me that the virtual riders left him behind so it wasn’t just me. Still, I think this is crap!
