I generally follow a model I call “opportunistic training”. It was invented when I had younger children, and had to be creative about finding training opportunities.
The basic idea is that when I have the time, and the weather’s good, I train. I don’t do the “3 weeks on, 1 week off” kind of thing. I figure the weather will get crappy, or something will come up with work or life to force some rest.
Usually it’s the weather. Last winter was brutal. I got lots of rest.
But I don’t think I’ve ever had to deal with the “problem” of the weather being too nice. Each abnormally nice and warm day that we’ve been having, I feel like I have to “take advantage of the opportunity”. It’s only April 5, and I’m accumulating training points like it’s June. I barely earned any badass winter training points.
There was a moment last week where I thought, “I just can’t ride anymore right now.” That usually happens … in August.
This must be what it’s like if you live somewhere that has decent weather as a rule rather than an exception. It must be tough. But I think I would be willing to deal with it.
