Four reasons why you should take an offseason break

Avoid burnout, focus on other projects, reset mentally and physically, and be rest assured your fitness will come back.

— by Daniel Clarke

I’m a big supporter of taking an offseason break. I’ve talked about this in the past, but I think it’s important to repeat.

In the past, I have taken breaks as long as 12 weeks, and I believe its help me become a better athlete. This doesn’t mean any exercise, but it does mean not checking Training Peaks. If I want to do a bakery ride I’ll do it, but I won’t be concerned about the distance I’m getting in or the power I’m hitting.

Above I have put together four reasons why I think you should consider a nice long offseason this year.
