Should I take a couple of weeks off?
This is my first full year of cycling, and I had a goal of 5,000 (outside) miles. I reached the 5,000 mark on Friday by doing 63 chilly miles.
Once the clocks changed, and going outside during the week stopped, I jumped on my trainer. My "no daylight" schedule usually consists of outside riding on the weekend, and SPINeRVALS traing tapes 2-3 times during the week.
My question is:
Should I take 2 full weeks off? I've ridden 4-6 times a week all year long, except for 9 weeks off last Spring due to injury.
So do I take a break "between seasons" or does going down to 4 days a week in the off season provide enough rest?
