Tailor your midseason workouts by identifying and correcting your weaknesses, Stone suggests.
For example, if you’re wobbling on the hill, focus on balance and core stability in your training sessions. If you can’t seem to get your legs out from under you far enough to arc your turns, spend extra time stretching your hips. If it means you have to stray from the workouts outlined here, don’t worry-we won’t be offended.
