How do athletes train in winter?

It's a long, cold winter and if you struggle to get out of bed when it is frosty outside, imagine waking up to do a 90-minute run, followed by an hour swimming, another hour in the gym and then two hours on the bike.

For many athletics this is a typical Monday. The rest of the week sees a similarly gruelling schedule, with an average of over 30 hours across the seven days.

It is a physically demanding schedule but the mental cost of facing freezing conditions for repetitious training sessions, day in day out, can be just as exhausting.
