So 1 or 2 months, perhaps less, till we start looking at racing again! Have you changed anything in your training as we move into what many coaches and athletes call the build or specific preparation periods?
Training wise this can mean a variety of things depending on your goals and your current limiters.
For our Mountain Bike XC Athletes we tend to have success challenging Muscular Endurance with Tempo and Threshold efforts at a slightly lower RPM then comfortable. Combining some work on higher cadence and sprints can make for great workouts and begin to focus on race specific abilities.
Road cyclists may look more at threshold efforts this time of season as volume decreases. Again some sprint and cadence work could be very beneficial (see weekly workouts from 2 weeks ago for a good primer).
Feeling confused on how to increase the specificity of your training as race season approaches ??? Try looking back on past seasons/races (or your year end review ... you did one right!?!?!) consider where you lost time in races, where things got hard and what your event requires for success.
