How do you spend your rest days?

Question • 10 answers

I'm currently feeling the effects of a tough workout and have pretty much every muscle hurting right now! I had a full day off yesterday (but walked a lot doing some touristy stuff), today I found cycling was actually a relief rather than doing nothing. ...

Newest answer

I think if this is not "challenging" for you then don't take it. If you want to than do. There is not need to critique the validity of the challenge.

Best tyres for snow

Question • 1 answer

Hoping for snow this winter - particularly as we literally had none here at all last winter. My current fast tread tyres on my mtb will not be good enough for snow and I'm not willing to spend money for a fat bike for such an occasion (although I've been t...

I usually breath every 3 strokes. But  I think for triathlon training one of the drills is to breath every 3,5,7and 9 strokes.  I'm no expert but for open water swimming maybe it is an advantage .
