Next week is a rest week.
I’m not good at this. I know why I need them, but it’s hard to hold back, particularly on the bike, particularly in these parts. There are too many hills to relax.
So, this is the plan. Instead of getting on the bike, I plan to get on the spinning bike at the gym for 30 minutes Monday through Wednesday, and do recovery rides. And, I’ll also do a 30 minute weight workout afterward – 1 set of all exercises I usually do but just 1 set instead of 3-5 sets. Thursday I’ll take off completely except, for a walk or hike. And then on Friday complete the 5 minute aerobic capacity and 20 minute lactate threshold test on the spinning bike when I hope to be fully recovered from the last 3 weeks of training.
This is different than I have done in the past.
