I was asked recently what the best way to train for an event in 4 months time would be . After explaining the benefits of tapering and working back from the date of the event and training in 4 week blocks ,I began to wonder just how much the person would actually enjoy riding their bike during that time and what would happen even if they won the event .
The simple pleasure of heading out for a spin on the bike without any pressure might not be experienced this summer . Every spin will have to have a purpose and any deviation from the plan may lead to frustration and resentment .
Life is all about balance , just like riding the bike . We all need to have a purpose but somedays we need to enjoy that day or that spin just for what it is .
Today , have a good one !
