How you mentally tackle these stumbling blocks is more important than anything in your lead up to a great spring and summer. Take the opportunity to back off training, let your body and your brain recover. Training hard takes both to be working properly and both need rest. 3 weeks of low hours and easy riding isn’t a bad thing at all. Will you possibly be a weak late on form, sure, maybe, or you might come out of it stronger as you’re itching to race and train hard when it’s over. Nothing makes a 60 degree day warmer than weeks of 20 degrees.
So are you confident enough to take time off? Are you confident enough that your legs will come around? Are you confident enough to relax and let your mind and body relax? If you’re confident enough to do that I am convinced you will be confident enough to win in the spring and summer.
And lucky for us, warmer weather seems like it is on its way.
