Cycling is my main sport and some time back I developed an annual training plan based on the advice of Joe Friel in his book "The Cyclist's Training Bible" (by the way, the word "bible" in Greek simply means "book" so there's nothing sacrilegious about using it in this way). When I say "annual training plan" I mean that every day of the year is designated for some specific activity, although Friel (and I) is well aware that life happens and the plan can't always be followed.
Anyhow, today is a cross-training day which means I'll be off the bike, in the weight room, and walking/jogging in the woods. I'm eager to be on the bike, actually, but I know that in the long run mixing it up a little helps keep me interested!
