The Importance of Staying Relaxed

Yes, it's important to train and get some distance in before you embark on a 6 day cycling holiday, especially on a mountainous island, but if you pull your calf for example and can't get off the couch, you lost more then just the money? Yes, it's winter most likely where you are, so getting going in the cold is hard, especially in a climate when you eat more and drink less, the risk of muscle damage is much higher, so take it easy, ride long and easy and if you want to work on your cardio, do it on Zwift or on the trainer, at least if your program is correct you will have warm up and warm down sections, so less likely to end up on the sofa with a pulled calf. There rant over!
