/ Training and recovery
Weird innit? I have weeks where I can do 20 hours - back to back 4 and 5 hour hard rides. Then I have weeks where I'm knackered the next day after 100km.

My understanding (which is somewhat limited) is that the recovery phase is as important as it is this that makes you stronger.
Riding when you don't want to is a recipe for losing your mojo. You improve during the recovery period. No recovery period no recovery.
