In January of 2018. with the miles from his commute adding up, Legarreta began searching for a new car that he could drive to the train station. That’s when a work buddy suggested he buy a bike instead. Legarreta wavered at first, but eventually gave in and decided to ride the train partway and bike the rest. Along the way, he developed a love of mountain biking.
Kids have an ability to absorb varying levels of workload, so it’s very individual. As a parent, the main thing you want to watch is their head – their motivation, and enjoyment of the sport. So many kids get to their teenage years and if they’re not really in love with the sport, they find an easy exit.
Some people consider half an hour on the turbo or rollers recovery, I always say a rest day is a rest day – for your body and your mind. I’m not an advocate of active recovery. You’re either resting or training. As soon as you start getting your kit on, you’re in bike mode.
For amateurs, when someone says they want to train as best they can, and can ride seven days a week, I always advise them to take two rest days a week. That’s partly to manage them physically, but also mentally. Unless you’re a professional, the weekends and spare time is valuable for your family and lifestyle. It’s easy to over-prioritise cycling when really it is a hobby.
