The off-season. It’s a sliver of time in most athletes’ calendars that is either dreaded or eagerly looked forward to. Regardless of your relationship to it, this 2-3 time is vital to your training, health, and growth as an athlete.
As many years as I’ve done this, I understand how it can be a daunting time. For 48+ weeks you’ve been on the bike and had a training goal. Now you’re forced to step off of it and recalibrate. Do not view it as a step in the wrong direction, view it as making room for the growth to come.
