When the going gets tough…
It’s cheesy, but when the going gets tough, the tough do get going. Turbo training can be hard but Hannah explains:
When I find it hard to keep going and complete a session I just have to remember that the people I’ll be racing soon won’t be stopping in the middle of an interval, so I can’t either.
To prevent boredom, Hannah trains with music, sometimes watching the TV and added:
“Thankfully I don’t have to do long rides on the turbo very often, but I have team mates all over the world and some of them have been unable to ride outside for weeks because of snow. If they’re doing long rides on the turbo, a lot of them do read.”
Maryka said her favourite distraction was music and shared: “My iPod nano is also a must have, with a specific playlist, which I sometimes create to work exactly with the intervals I’m planning.”
