Howdy everyone. Glad to be here!
Any tips for TR workouts in an apartment? I’m thinking of how to deal with noise, vibration, and inconveniencing the people around you (neighbors, napping toddlers, partners).
I live on the main floor of a two story made in the 50s so everything’s pretty thin - floors, walls, windows… I’m just starting out with indoor workouts so I didn’t (aka: couldn’t) afford more than a used fluid trainer and the budget is set and tight. But I’m excited about the prospect of some consistent training through the fall/winter without having to get rained on.
With my schedule, commitments, family, and a 2-year old running around the house with no pants on, the times I can train consistently are early morning and later at night. But I don’t want to be that neighbor.
I chose a low volume plan to start hoping I’ll be able to get outside for a little more than just my commutes. Typically, I’ve ridden through the winter but when I got married, I found myself with less to prove and then, having a kiddo, the wet roads and limited daylight loom more ominous.
We don’t know our neighbors too well (they’re new-ish) but I’m realizing a first step is to get to know them! I’m pretty easy going until I feel like i’m making someone else’s life really annoying - then some of the magic of consistent indoor training during the rainy season is lost!
Any pointers would be really helpful!
