Fed up of getting home late from work and having to pick between Netflix and training? Ultra-endurance cyclist, Laura Scott, explains why indoor training is the best way to get fit, especially when you are stretched for time.
I have personally always struggled with balancing work and training, add family, friends and other commitments into the equation, and some days it can feel impossible to get out and ride.
On weekdays I would often get up at 4:45am to try and do a few laps of a local park before work, but to be honest I never felt like I was getting quality training in, and by the time 7pm rolled around I was usually ready for bed.
There are lots of different schools of thought on training; my approach as an endurance cyclist was always to ride as much as possible. This was obviously not sustainable, especially as I travel a lot for work and 14+ hour days are the norm. It was frustrating that even with the best intentions, I was finding it hard to stick to any kind of training plan.
Eventually, I admitted defeat and turned to indoor training. I had resisted for ages because I believed it would be boring and didn’t see how it would benefit endurance, but the first time I tried the Wattbike Atom, I realised my preconceptions had been wrong.
So here are the 4 reasons why you should use a Wattbike to train if you have a busy schedule.
