Post-Season Break and Figuring Out Goals for Next Season
It's that time of year when the racing starts winding down and all of our excitement and energy for the season begins to dwindle.
Fall is nearing and we start thinking about other things than training and racing our bikes. Do you smell that? That's the smell of offseason. Ahhhh.
However, there's a right way and a wrong way to take a post-season break and shift into the offseason. By strategically planning out this period and getting a head start on planning for next year, we can hit the ground running and make big improvements when it's time to start training again. Instead of just cutting things off without structure, what if we took this break a little more seriously and used it to our advantage?
In this podcast, Frank and Jackson discuss the importance of the post-season break and how to effectively use this time to go faster next year. We break down everything you need to know about this critical time of year for the cyclist.
