Take Some Time

As most of us have completed our "A" races for the year we naturally begin to immediately start thinking about next year and want to start building on the fitness we have gained through out the last 9 - 10 months. We can't say this enough but exhale, relax and take some time to allow your body and maybe most importantly your mind to rebound from what you have just put them through. Trust us on this, most people need the break from structure to renergize in order to come back with the same enthusiasm and drive that you had for the previous season. You also need to let your body have a break, yes you will most likely lose a little fitness from your peak but that is alright trust us it will come back and much sooner than last year.

When we say take some time off this does not mean sit on the couch for a month or so as this will just lead to frustration once the structure resumes. We recommend that you still swim, bike, run but just do it on a more relaxed schedule. Use this time to run with those who you may not normally run with while training, if you raced primarily long course stuff this season maybe sign up for some 5K's or trail runs that you wouldn't normally do. If you always passed on running with the local running club as you wanted to stay to your training plan, jump in for a few runs but just run relaxed.

Take some time in the pool to not worry about speed or distance and just really try and work on your stroke. Maybe swim in a lane slower than you normally would at Masters so that you can concentrate on that form or perfect that Fly you have always wanted to master.

Take some time to ride that dusty mountain bike in the corner of the garage, go visit some trails you haven't been to in awhile. Go for a group ride where the pace is casual and you can enjoy just the company of riding.

The bottom line is take some time away from structure but make sure to stay active. The structure will be back soon enough. Enjoy the offseason and use it as a time to reflect on last season on what went well and what didn't as well as refresh and renergize for 2015.

Remember #workworks!
