Indoor Trainer & Humidity
I recently read this article from Bicycling Magazine about keeping cool while on the indoor trainer.
It's worth a read, but long story short: keep cool or your workout will suffer (even if it feels like you're kicking ass and taking names).
I have a small gym in my basement, use two fans, and keep the barn-door style door wide open. Should be good, right?
Not so much. Before and after... 20C to 22C... 21% to 44% relative humidity.
In 1 hour the temperature went up 2 degrees and relative humidity more than doubled from 21% to 44%! The smiley face is about comfort sitting around, not hammering it on the bike... so this means it got increasingly harder to shed the heat.
Not sure what I can do to fix?
