  • - How I figured out how to make these miles not slog by.

  • Just going on for an hour.

  • And it's a game changer.

  • Mornin' Trainiacs.

  • So obviously with it being indoor trainer season right now,

  • a lot of people are clawing their eyes out

  • tryin' to figure out how to make the trainer miles

  • go by quicker.

  • Well today, I'm gonna give you,

  • I have no idea how many tips,

  • on how I figured out how to make these miles not slog by.

  • Now for starters, don't go onto the trainer

  • just thinking you're just gonna go for a ride.

  • Going on there with no purpose or plan

  • is a sure fire way to go through a really boring

  • hour or two.

  • I normally wouldn't wear a tri-suit on the bike.

  • FE2-26, wanted to send this out.

  • And because everyone looks so good in a one piece,

  • I said yes.

  • Hell yes.

  • See what I mean?

  • Apparently it took them two and a half years

  • to design this so,

  • I'm getting some testing going.

  • Make sure that you're always going

  • into a ride with a purpose.

  • Don't just go in aimlessly.

  • Break it up into chunks so that you're not doing an hour.

  • All you have to think of is, maybe I need to get

  • through the next 15 seconds, or the next two or three

  • or five or 10 minutes.

  • Chunk it up, create a plan.

  • So that it's mentally engaging.

  • Just going on for an hour,

  • you're gonna be brain dead by the end of that thing.

  • Next, make sure that you get some air movement,

  • in wherever you're training.

  • I like to open a couple of doors,

  • even though it's minus 15 outside.

  • Get a fan on going over top,

  • because you don't want your body giving out on you

  • because it's overheating.

  • And when you're in an area, typically indoors,

  • low ceilings, not a lot of air movement,

  • you're gonna overheat, you're gonna sweat a lot,

  • and you're not gonna wanna be on that trainer.

  • A lot of people use a fan, try that.

  • Just get some movement going.

  • The next thing that you can and should be doing,

  • is creating games with yourself throughout a workout

  • that you've created.

  • So let's say you're doing a,

  • power based workout, or strength based workout,

  • figure out what you're high water mark is for power

  • or how long you can hold a certain perceived exertion,

  • like, see how long you can hold perceived exertion

  • of nine outta 10.

  • Or if you've got a power meter, see if you can crack

  • the 700 watts that you put out last time.

  • Or if all you've got is a heart rate monitor,

  • do low heart rating in between, in my case 125 and 130.

  • And work to keep it in there.

  • So at least you're mentally engaging and not just like,

  • all right, well I've gotta go for another five minutes.

  • You've got something like when you're out on the road,

  • and you've constantly gotta be adjusting

  • and that'll make it go by a lot quicker.

  • Next thing you can do,

  • pump up the jam, get it going.

  • A lot of people ask me if these get damaged

  • from sweating all over them,

  • being just absolutely disgusting.

  • No damage yet.

  • But because I've got the fan overtop of me

  • and all that air movement and it's cool in here,

  • I do sweat.

  • But it just gets these little pads wet,

  • instead of the whole thing and the electronics

  • and everything so.

  • Air movement allows you to have better tunes,

  • and then you can like, put on these noise canceling

  • headphones and just (mumbles).

  • By the way if you search Triathlon Taren Playlist,

  • I think there might be something on Spotify for ya',

  • just sayin'.

  • The next thing is try to watch

  • or listen to something and see how that works for ya'.

  • I personally find watching movies just mind numbing.

  • But, I find listening to podcasts, pretty engaging.

  • Ooh, so far I like how this feels in the core, stiff.

  • (tranquil music)

  • Open door.

  • I am lookin' like such a triathlete in my one piece

  • and short socks.

  • I look good out there.

  • Now if you really wanna take things seriously.

  • Because I've been riding trainers,

  • and using the music and movies,

  • and whatever for years.

  • But it wasn't until this year,

  • this is not sponsored in anyway shape or form,

  • besides the fact that Wahoo sent this to me,

  • but when I got the Wahoo Kickr Smart Trainer,

  • started up Zwift, that was the absolute biggest change

  • that I've ever experienced enjoying an indoor ride.

  • So, if you got the coin, to get a Smart Trainer

  • like the Wahoo Kickr, pair it with Zwift,

  • find me on Zwift.

  • First name is T, last name is, Riathlon Taren.

  • Come ride with me.

  • And it's a game changer.

  • Most enjoyable indoor training I've ever done.

  • Lucy Charles, second place in Kona,

  • she just passed me like I was standing still,

  • and then gave me a right on.

  • Oh stop Lucy, stop.

  • Now everyone is probably wondering what my exact

  • setup is on the trainer.

  • Well, I got Zwift on a big screen TV,

  • I got the Wahoo Kickr, I use the road bike right now,

  • while we're a long way away from race season.

  • I use Bose QC35 headphones.

  • I listen to podcasts while things are fairly mellow.

  • And I've got a Triathlon Taren pump up Spotify

  • playlist when things get serious.

  • On the side, I have all kinds of camera gear

  • and lighting equipment, so you all can see me,

  • while we talk triathlon things.

  • All right, later Trainiacs.
