May Challenge

So I've given it some thought and decided that we should dig deeper this month.

Since it is time to switch to longer rides in preparation for your longer events and races. Lets spend the month of May going longer. Each week I want you to extend your longest ride by 20% but I want you to drop your other rides for the first week by 5%. This will allow your body to compensate. On week 2 up the other rides back to their original length 1 per week to avoid over training. Let's let those miles on your weekend, whatever day of the week that may be, teach your body to go longer.

When this becomes easy, kick the intensity of your shorter rides up as much as you feel comfortable, on the days were you have plenty of energy to throw into your workout.

Remember, listen to your body and take rest days when you need them. Every stressor in your life, even the ones off the bike take a toll on your energy level. Let the extra work you put into your training be a fitness multiplier not a fitness divisor.

Good luck and Ride On!

As you have featured in the article that without instruction no one can land an agreeable position. Training can make our life lavish and cheerful in light of the fact that it gives numerous odds to carry out any occupation. It is an imperative article for us in which you have elucidated some fundamental things.
