As they say in a HBO TV show that I’m not going to name for copyright reasons, winter is coming and in some parts of the world, winter may already be here.
If you’re in the Northern hemisphere like we are, that means dark nights and it wanging it down with rain most of the time, or being bitterly cold with the wind.
How does that affect your training if you’re wanting to continue?
It makes the prospect of going outside, running or riding your bike outside a lot less appealing than it has been for the past few months?
We’re a big advocate of indoor training, so putting your bike on the turbo, using a treadmill, and that enables you to keep your sessions going while you’re staying dry and relatively warm depending on which room in the house that you are doing those sessions in.
More importantly, you’re getting more bang for your buck because you’re not having to stop for cars.
You’re not having to stop for red lights and you’re not having to stop for other pedestrians or other road users that you’re having to get around.
You’ll get a better session in training indoors, but also this time of year you’ll be far safer and far warmer and less likely to get ill.
