Consider participation in a 30-day challenge following the GranFondo preparation. Find a good local gym where you can maintain body strength for functionality and challenge yourself to get stronger and keep fit Take a well-deserved recovery this week. You’ve achieved some enormous gains in fitness and the body needs some time to adapt and realign. This is the taper going into the GranFondo. You should be well recovered but not necessarily rested. You need to maintain fitness and leg speed with the short individual workout, but you get a big reduction in long ride from the last two weeks. Be sure to check out cycling clubs with rides going in your area this week.
