    Fatigue update...

    You guys were so helpful when I recently asked about fatigue. Thanks to your advice Iv'e decreased my overall hours from 12hrs/week to 8-10hrs/week but more importantly made 80% of those hours purely aerobic. I will occasionally increase the proportion of anaerobic for peak race periods but on the whole stick to the above.
    Did a race today and finished in a roughly similar position to last race but more importantly found myself enjoying it again.
    Heartfelt thanks to you all.

    Good job grawp!

    Preparing for first MTB race of the season

    See wyomingdaves response about anaerobic work. IOW - It does not take that long to get anaerobic gains, you can only get so much benefit from it, and it is what will fatigue you the most.

    Make sure you do plenty of this
