This is one of the hardest things for me to do. In our mind we thing the harder we train the better we’ll go. When we rest it feels like you should be doing something. I know from experience that rest is key. Without rest you will never benefit from your hard training. It’s hard as an athlete to ever rest to much. This time around it’s really driving me crazy since the weather here in Denver is near 70 today! I’ll get out for a couple easy hours. One on my road bike and another on my TT bike. Sometimes I feel like riding a couple easy hours is worthless. Instead you should just take the day off. Well today the weather is just to good. training-camp-041
