- your opinions on resting between races.
I had my poorest result in cross this saturday, my head seemed to fall off. On the Sunday I went out on the fast 100km club run. Whilst I could press along I couldn’t put in any sustained efforts. My thighs felt as if some one had punched them. I wasn’t hungry or bonking.Posted 4 years ago
I quick glance at the scales last night showed a temporary weight loss of 9lb that’s after eating drinking.
Do you think a complete rest is in order, next CX is this Saturday.crosshairMember
How did the week before compare to the previous lead-up weeks? I suppose it depends if the Saturday CX is your preferred goal? If so then structure your week to ‘peak’ on the Saturday.

i always run saturday and cx race sunday which isnt so bad with monday off or recover spin on turbo. (doing this in a minute to see how the legs feel)
a cx race on sat then a run i did a few weeks back and wasnt so bad either but i know from my experience that long fast rides really wipe me out whereas short ones like cx dont.
anyway dont forget to factor in an easy week every month or so or a complete recover week if you like, youll come back faster..
cross training also helps prevent burnout.
9lbs weight loss isnt right though, you need to sort that outPosted 4 years agojonbaMember
Listen to your body. Back off if you don’t feel 100% rather than trying to train through the weakness. Especially at this time of year when you could have an underlying cold.
I do back to back racing at the weekend occasionally. After CX on Saturday I can feel it on the Sunday when I’ve been doing hill climbs. The races themselves are ok but it has been taking me an age to warm up on Sundays. 1h+ rather than 30 minutes. By Monday I’m knackered so end up taking it easy through the week, especially if I’m doing another race the next weekend.Posted 4 years ago
