Odd you should post this topic, I was thinking last night (sometimes dangerous for me) while reading 'Cycling past 50' by John Friel. I ned to ber more consistent with my exercising.
Cardinal Rules of training.
1. Ride consistently
2. Ride Moderately
3. Rest frequently
He states ' Rule 1 is based on the premise that nothing does more to limit or reduce fitness than missed rides'.
He goes on to explain that rides may be replaced by exercise.
Sooooo this time of year, I miss sure skip alot of exercising and try to catch up on 'good days', usually overdoing it and creating body problems. Thus I'm doing alot of rule 3 at the sacrifice of rule 1 & 2.
