What should I be doing in the off-season to prepare for a strong 2013?

If your goal is a strong upcoming race season, here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. Take at least one month off from structured training. This not only allows you to recover from your race season but also “resets the clock” for next year. If you cut your recovery time short, you won’t have as much room to improve your fitness and may find that you plateau in the middle of the season.
