Hello all. As a non-racer in very good (if not excellent) physical condition, I am having trouble separating training from performance. How does one go about training without pushing the limits? Whenever I ride it seems like the end result equals the same average speed which is around 20mph give or take. They say there are recovery rides and such. There is the club ride which goes much faster due to pacelining. Any suggestions or similar experiences. Am I pushing things to hard all the time or should I slow down on occasion? I know i am not a racer. Maybe a better question is what if? Riding in Michigan on generally flat terrain with some short climbs. Try to ride at a higher cadence as well.
