Episode 38 - How to get back into training after a forced or planned break.

Ever find yourself feeling like you are behind in your training after a break?  What do you do you to get back to the level you were before you had to pause your training? The reality is disruption in your training is normal.  Time off your bike for recovering from illness, work deadlines, and family vacations are all part of reality. We have created a process to help athletes of all levels to return to the level they were at before the break.  In this episode we share what we call, the "Re-Entry." The Re-Entry is a proven process that brings you right back to where you left off WITHOUT lowering your zones.   So listen up and stop burning your fitness house down and rebuilding it after every forced or planned break.
