3 questions that go through my mind for a while now and I am curious about the input from people on this forum.
- Whenever I start riding indoors (with plan or without) I feel mentally drained and lost all motivation after 2 weeks. I always had this since starting cycling. Does some of you experience this also and what is your remedies to ensure you are not coming out of the winter like a complete useless competitor?
- Based on my, now 4 years, of racing experience and training I have noticed that I am far better in 2 weeks on and 1 week off training schedule. Which is odd as I am not even 35 but still require the rest as a 50+ . Anyone else experiencing this to confirm I am not the only one?
- My first child was born 3 months ago and all is going very well. As always the little guy is not the problem but mommy is . Did you stopped racing / training for a year or did you decide to go and took the potentially bad results for granted?
When writing this I was thinking to split it out in 3 sections but I don’t want to overload the forums with my BS.
