SLEEP BET­TER

When you’re try­ing to get up for an early ride, good sleep the night be­fore is a non­nego­tiable; all the train­ing in the world won’t help if you’re un­der­recov­ered. Clean up your sleep hy­giene for an eas­ier wake-up: avoid screen time be­fore bed, sleep in a cool, dark room, and cut out that af­ter­noon caf­feine.

MORN­ING MUSIC

Set your alarm to blast a song in­stead of a foghorn for a more pleas­ant wake-up call. Hear­ing the right song in the morn­ing can help boost our en­gines, and mo­ti­vate us to tackle the chal­lenges and make most of the op­por­tu­ni­ties that wait for us in the day ahead.

GET YOUR MIND RIGHT

If you go to bed think­ing “Maybe I’ll ride”, you prob­a­bly won’t. Set your in­ten­tion be­fore you go to sleep, and make your morn­ing what you want it to be. “The alarm is not de­bat­able. Set your min­i­mum ex­pec­ta­tion that you’re go­ing to ride to­day,” says coach Peter Glass­ford. The first kay might be the tough­est, but your body WILL wake up... prom­ise!
