Taking a Mid-Season Break And Regaining Fitness After Time Off The Bike
The cycling season (especially in California) is an exceptionally long one. I have lots of athletes who want to jump straight from the road season into cyclocross, and vice versa. In California, the racing season begins in January and doesn’t end till late September. Add in a solid base season and many racers only have a month long off-season. For those athletes who want to race well early and late in the season, a mid-season break is a must. This break serves as a time for both physical and mental recuperation from the tolls of racing and training.
