How do you make yourself take it easy on the bike.I'll usually go out saying to myself, okay today i'm going to ride slow and look around at the scenery for once only to catch myself a couple of miles down the road blasting a wicked pace, hunched over the bike, sucking stem, mouth wide open and drool on both sides of my mouth. How do you guys do it?!

Usally my body tells me it easy day time and I have learned to listen to my body this usally works for me but that is me may not work for anyone else. I tell myself if I dont stick with my training plan all that is going to happen is I will end up overtrained, tired burned out and have not one bit of improvement to show for my effort.
I also try to tell myself rest easy days are just important if not more so than my hard days.
May want to try this dont use your computer or heart rate monitor on easy day, also if you have say beater or rain bike ride that that may make you take it a little easier.
Hope this helps a little good luck rember if you dont have easy rest days all your hard days will be for nothing.
