Boredom while indoor training
« on: November 26, 2019, 08:45 »
Hi all

This is my first post here. One question I wanted to put out there regarding indoor training.

Does anyone get bored? And, if so, how do you deal with it?

And I include Zwift in this, because that can get a bit dull too.

Cheers

    I don't ride indoors. :D[1]

    A couple of years ago, I bought a cheap indoor trainer, nothing fancy, just a contraption to fit the rearwheel into with a magnetic (?) roll that provided resistance. Used it a few times, found it was boring as a very boring thing, and that you sweat like a pig because there's no airflow.
    So I rather wrapped up warm and headed outside, even in winter, and gave the indoor trainer away to a kid who'd use it. ;)

    Mind you, I'm not specifically training, just riding my bike.

    Any indoor training I've ever done I've just set up the indoor trainer with a tv in front of it so I can watch a film or tv show while training.

    Pretty much the same. I'm riding 30 minutes a day on my indoor trainer, everyday but the days I'm riding outside but most of the time I'm riding indoors. Usually I put my laptop in front, watching a show or listening to music. However when I'm riding early in the morning and am hardly awake, I don't feel like bringing the laptop in front and that's when it gets boring. I'm just telling myself that half an hour quickly passes ...
