One of the reasons many of us don’t achieve our cycling goals, or even get started is due to failing to establish a set routine.
Do you find you are always rushing and never actually get what you want done?
Does something unexpected always pop up, so you don’t get to get out on your bike?
You can find that spending a little time to set your priorities will unlock the freedom to get out more consistently on your bike.
More than ever we are faced with challenges that are out of our control. For some of us we have had to readjust numerous times through our work schedule with many of us working from home, with children and home and now have the challenges of getting to work and combating the school run.
Building a positive routine can build structure, allowing us to have more control over what we do and the time we can commit to it.
The Power is in your hands
You have the power to say what you want to be in your routine. Prioritise what needs to be done and ensure you make time for yourself. Make time for healthy habits that are going to give you benefits in the future. Write a list and set a plan for the week.
Learn to say no!
Once you have your plan it can give you the power to say no! Reflect on your schedule and you have the right to say no if you want to ensure you get your ride in.
Be consistent and track your progress
Try to keep to the same plan each week. Cycling can be difficult, especially as it’s often a solo activity. You can do it whenever you want, but ensure you get out the same times each week to create momentum. Also, people will start to realise that is your time for you on your bike, so they won’t bother you to do anything else.
Track and Reward your Progress
Track how many times you get out each week and set yourself personal goals. Don’t forget to reward yourself along the way. Also, if you do get off track, ensure you get on track as soon as possible, the longer you leave it, the harder it will be to get back.
