TRAINING TIP - BASE TRAINING

TRAINING TIP - BASE TRAINING 
If due to work, family and life commitments you only have one day a week for a long ‘base’ ride do you stick to your base/Z2 training zone?
.
Or do you just count time in the saddle as base? 
.
Is that long group ride keeping to base or is it a half wheeling and KOM chasing free for all?
.
Before you go on that long group ride ask yourself how it’s normally ridden and what you want to achieve from a long ride, if it’s half wheeling ride and you want intensity go for it, but if you want proper base either ride on your own or find someone with similar fitness and objective for that ride.
.
3 to 5hrs half wheeling and KOM chasing IS NOT BASE TRAINING, call it what it is which is speed play or fartlek training as the Swedish call it.
