Recovery, then technique
Certainly, after your last race you should take some time to recover both physically and mentally. You want to take just enough time off to let your body rest and heal but even more importantly rest your mind. You need to get hungry again – passionately wanting to train, race, and get better.
What does off-season intensity look like?
With technique refined, begin to slowly build volume and intensity but only as far and as fast as your technique can be maintained. Some argue that “base training” should consist of all easy work, but this is false. Breakthrough seasons come from a smart off-season of intensity. Without the constraints of upcoming races, no other time of the year allows you to focus so purely on your training and improvement. With this focus, fitness can sky rocket in just a few short months.
