One Week Until "The Big One"
So it's one week (minus a day) till the race I've been working towards all year, the provincial mountain bike championships. I've trained and raced hard all year and am feeling strong at this point. I'm wonder what you guys do the week before a big race? Should I rest, easy spins, some hard efforts during the week? I was planning on just resting, perhaps with some easy easy miles, and with one hard effort mid week to "blow out the pipes". Does this sound OK?
