People have often asked how I train. What sort of load do I do and what kind of training do I do after stage races. Below is my training and racing schedule for the month of August. Although the schedule is fairly detailed its sometimes changed due to fatigue. If for example I have a hard time doing certain intervals I’ll stop the intensity part of that day’s training and might even take a rest day the following day. As you can see my numbers aren’t extraordinary but then again neither is my motor. I like to call it the little motor that could. My weight right now is around 66Kg and for a rider my height at this level it should be between 63-64Kg. But hey I live in Chianti and I love to ride my bike but I also like a descent glass or bottle of wine every once in a while.
So here is how the August schedule started. It’s been changed a few times due to fatigue as well as an early exit from the Tour of Poland on stage 6.
