A week of rest

A week of rest really makes a different.  I’m faster, stronger and able to sustain a higher HR for a longer time.  During the week, I did get 5 hrs of riding and a 3hr hike in.  I was also getting 10hrs of sleep a night, which for me is 2 or 3 more hrs per night.

It’s hard to remember to take a break and just chill off the bike for a week, but rest weeks are really important.  You’ll build strength while resting, and regain a mental edge ready for competition.
