The final days before the women’s race
Now that their endurance is built up, the week leading up to the race will be for resting and maintaining the work they’ve done. Legg and fellow Wing It cyclists Laura Miller and Melissa Moeller said this is what their week looks like.
The riders will run small intervals to keep their stamina up. They don’t go too hard to make sure they don’t tire themselves leading up to the race.
Similar to Monday, but a little less. Once again, the riders will go hard enough in their intervals to not lose their conditioning but easy enough to not wear out.
Take it easy. Each rider might do one or two exercises to make sure her legs properly recover, but the focus is to rest and charge for the race.
Same as Wednesday.
