Keys to Improvement

Have you decided you want to become a faster rider? You are tired of finishing at the back of the pack on your weekend rides? Or perhaps you feel you have reached a performance plateau?

Just increasing your weekly mileage will not get you the results you are looking for.  The key to improvement in your performance will be in changing the intensity, not volume, of your training miles. What is your next step?

First, you need to have put in your 400 or 500 early season base training miles. You need these miles to help strengthen the ligaments and tendons around your joints or in the muscles to lessen the odds of an injury by stressing them.

Then you need to review your weekly riding schedule and add both

intervals and
resistance work 

to your training program.
