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.
