I love structured training, but I’ve noticed that after a few months of it I start to get mentally burned out. I currently have about four weeks left of the Build phase and I know I’m going to need to take a “just ride your damn bike” break before jumping into Speciality—be that outdoors, on Zwift, or a mixture of both (with a little TR thrown in for recovery rides).
Anyone else get this way? It could also be because at this point in the year I’m usually mixing in more outdoor group rides, but given the circumstances, I’ve exclusively been on the trainer for months now. A few weeks should do the trick for me—just having fun riding my bike for two or three weeks is usually all I need to refocus.
