How to plan the perfect turbo training session with tips from professional female cyclists

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.”

There are a vast array of training DVDs to be snapped up, here’s one from 3LC
