Here he shares his top tips on fitting enough training into your schedule and staying in the best frame of mind when you’re always on the move…
If you’re obsessive about hitting miles and doing all your sessions, travel is going to kill you. Let your training targets go.
Running is the best bang-for-your-buck exercise. When I arrive at a hotel I’ll always go for a 30-40min jog.
Know where you’re going. Travel becomes more of a burden if you don’t plan accordingly. As professionals, we have to know our whereabouts because of drug testing.
Be realistic. You won’t embark on a three-hour ride straight after a 10-hour flight. By the time you’ve unpacked and built your bike, fatigue has set in. You don’t really know the roads and it’s just creating more stress.
Don’t use a heavy travel schedule as a crutch to blame a poor race on. Embrace it and look at the positives. It’s a chance for extra running or swimming, and get back into your routine when you’re back home.
