Zwift…..FOMO? Or essential item

Since the lock-down lots of people have had to do more indoor bike training. There are lots of ways to do this but a really popular one at the moment is Zwift. It seems like everyone is on it which leads to the inevitable…FOMO.  Do you really need it? 

Are you a junk mile junky

What are junk miles? Junk yards? Junk training? Are you a junk mile junky? Junk miles or yards is basically training that’s meaningless and has no purpose. And is therefore not an effective use of your training time.

Training on a Time Trial Bike

f you have a Time Trial bike for racing ideally you’d do as much of your training as possible on it in your racing position. In the UK this can be a real challenge with the weather, the traffic along, weather, narrow roads, undulating terrain and bad surfaces.

Lockdown Injury No 1: Saddle Sore

Like a lot of other people I’ve used the extra time I have during the lockdown to do some more training!! And with no pools open and no gyms I’ve ended up doing a bit more cycling on my turbo. And boom….week 1 and I’ve given myself my first lockdown injury.  Saddle sore!

Indoors vs Outdoors

Should I get on my turbo or go outside? Which is better for me? Of course there’s a lot of personal preference and some triathletes hate getting on their turbo and only ever go outside which I totally get.  On the other hand I have athletes that will only ride outside on a blue sky 20 degree kind of day. Which I also get!

How to stay motivated in crappy weather

We’ve had some pretty crappy weather recently what with Storm Ciara and Storm Dennis. All that rain and wind can be a real downer on any training especially if you have a long ride or long run planned and know you’ll be busy on a different week.
