Check out this latest episode of the Consummate Athlete Podcast discussing FOMO (fear of missing out) on big training days and fun looking races. We also discuss several fueling topics, how to deal with imperfect training conditions (weather, lacking hills, etc).
As I look through the episode notes and re-listen to the episode it strikes me that a lot of these concepts come back to paying attention to your own performance and response to the training and daily habits. If you are finding that you are struggling on hills then are you making sure that your habits/training line up with this? If energy on rides is tough are you trying and tracking different strategies?
