Winter Training, Base miles and Preparation for 2011

If you have had a busy summer of racing now should be a time of REST and RECOVERY. I will always recommend athletes having at least TWO WEEKS OFF after their last race of the summer season. Triathletes especially, have a hard time slowing down and having time off, but you benefit hugely from some time off before you begin the long winter BASE MILES that start the PREPARATION for next season.

It’s all happening, and I love it!!!

After your last race at the end of the summer it is always a good idea to have 1-4 weeks off, and this gives your body a chance to recovery after the summer season and the time off always makes getting back into training so much better because you really begin to miss the buzz of the sessions and the racing!
