In January we worked on base/endurance miles. In February we covered Pace Lines and how important they can be when riding in the wind. Well Ladies its March, and its time to put the two months together. By putting the two together this month, I believe/know that we will experience the benefits of both.
One other thing that I have not touched on this year., That's proper hydration. although its cold outside the body still perspires the same as if it was hot out. therefore we still need to prep our bodies the same by drinking plenty of fluids(water,power/gatorade) at least two days before any bike ride. A good way to gage your drinking while riding is to take a drink every 15 min, or have drank at least a entire bottle of water by the 20 mile mark. I say this because its to late to start drinking once your body starts cramping.
Prevention and Preparation are the Keys.
