So instead of staying sat there dreaming of getting back in the saddle follow these tips for getting the most out of your day, so that dreaming can become a reality.

Become a morning person
Getting up to train early can be hard – but people who ‘get it done’ before work are more likely to stick to exercise routines as a lot can get in the way of that after work session.
Find getting up hard? Let me introduce you to the wondrous little invention called the Lumie light. Although sceptical of the claims at first my mornings have now become much easier with the introduction of this alarm clock. It simulates the sunrise so will gradually get lighter and lighter until it reaches your set time. The days of groping for the alarm clock and forcing yourself to reach for the light switch are gone because it’s already light in your room. It leaves you feeling awake and ready for the day, making early mornings less stressful.
