Noncompetive weekend

My CX Intervals plan calls for a race or non-competive weekend.

I’m not racing–so is there a structured workout or race simulation workout I should be doing instead?

You could do a group ride for some fun intensity. Idea is to not do structured and get burnt out by always having something specific to do. Good to have those mental breaks in a plan.

However some athletes do just crave those very structured workouts that give them a goal and a target. Ideally choose a specific cross workout. Could do a practice start and then some 2 sets of CX 4 x 30 second ON / 30 seconds OFF Full Gas efforts.

But ideally you can find a group ride, or just ride a practice course with a few hot laps at race pace.


Thanks Jake, this is the answer I was hoping for.
