Off Season

Off season
All the road racing has finished up for the year, now it's time for the off season. That is exactly with the month of October should be...off your road bike. Let your body and mind relax, try new things, get out and smell the flowers, spend more time with your family, do some mountain biking, hiking, trail running, fishing, laundry, kayaking, paddle boarding, cooking, or even ballroom dancing (ha ha). Just hang your road bike up and take a break from it for a couple weeks.
After a 2-3 week break it is time to get back on the road bike for some endurance training. This means no hammering. Ride at a nice casual pace where you can actually have a conversation and enjoy the beauty. You'll want to do longer rides around 3-4 hours. It will be easier to do this either by yourself or with a few other people who have similar fitness to you. Group rides usually end up with too many people trying to show how strong they are and you end up losing site of a fun, social, relaxing ride. You will also want to start a gym program of core stability to address muscle imbalances.
More to come on this next step later. Enjoy your October.
