Base Phase for the Busy Working Person

I discussed the concept of ‘base’ (or General Preparation) on the Canadian Cycling Magazine Podcast in January 2018.

This episode comes in mid-winter when motivation is starting to decrease and the reality that all those intense trainer rides were perhaps a bit ambitious! This episode also includes details about some crazy (FUN) fat bike adventures, which might help motivate some outdoor endurance/social adventures to help you come into spring happy, MOTIVATED, healthy and fit!

We discuss how to increase the training load using volume, until you can’t. Ways to increase frequency (the often overlooked quality of training) and eventually adding intensity, carefully and reasonably!

You can listen to the whole episode or check out the segment I am on at around 29 minutes in.
