MY FRIEND TY IS HAVING A STAND OUT SEASON. So is Matt. They are following a very simple plan during the race season.
Race for the win,
Their training volume is down about 25%. The only intensity is racing 3-4 times a month. Everything else, everthing, is about resting and recovering. Easy rides. Plenty of sleep. Clean food. Massage.
Their blades are very sharp,
ready to cut you down.
What about you?
Too tired to race hard? Rest more.
No race season... but a serious focus on 1-2 events? Your last 3 weeks should look just like their season.
Just wanna keep up with your pals? Pick a day, make it your race.
No heart rate monitors,
No power meters.
