We go on a run or ride and just don’t have it. What next? Do we push it or pull back further than normal? How do we understand when it’s time to lay back vs. push? Today, we look at the variables involved, how you should make your decision, and how to know if it’s time to push or lay back. We also talk creating resiliency and race environments. De-hydration, coffee, and why you should always keep an eye on your next 48 hours. Time for a rest day?
