We’ve been doing some hard training, and hard racing lately. I’ve been telling Carla that even on a recovery ride it’s important to have something to work/focus on. Maybe braking technique, or lines into corners, or perhaps some aspect of reading the terrain, anything, just so long as you’re not riding along day dreaming.
However, just every now and then it’s nice to treat tired legs, body and brain to a gentle aimless drift of a ride……. going nowhere fast in particular, mind in neutral, stopping here and there to look and listen…. no time scale, it takes as long as it takes. Sheer self indulgent luxury. 🙂
