While I didn't order their green tire or the mat, I did order the Smart Trainer. It rocks and rolls, as they say... literally. The back wheel will literally angle to the left or the right as you pedal simulating actual pedaling on the road. It has Bluetooth sensors built in to measure cadence and speed and energy output: how many watts of energy you're burning as you pedal. This is a lot more than I was thinking about and I thought about for... oh, 5 or 6 seconds before I decided to go big.
Here's a Labor Day update on those Baleaf jogging shorts I bought (2 pair). The reviewer who claimed they revealed a lot was spot on the mark. It doesn't make any difference if your jogging, using an elliptical, or even just walking.. in no time at all your compass is pointing true north. These are not shorts for the shy.
And, of course, being Labor Day, I get to labor. They're bringing food in for us, they always do on a holiday. Some one said Subway, which tends to be high calorie, low nutrition fast food, made with processed faux turkey and ham, which make it not that healthy, in spite of what Jared said... remember Jared? Their pedophile spokesperson?
The new trainer should arrive Wednesday, so pictures on Thursday.
