First off - Man I sure hope you got out for a ride yesterday! What a beautiful day for Mid-November (a bit windy but the temps were ideal!). I caught a ride out to Arcade and did some exploring out that way on roads I don't ever get to ride on - what a great area if you have not been out there before!
Now onto the blog - browsing the internet I came across this article from Bicycling - 8 Habits Fast Cyclists Swear By: Here is a piece from the article on Growing Your Base:
Grow Your Base
Getting faster isn't all about intervals and high intensity training, especially if you’re new to cycling. While interval training is important (we'll get into that next), don't forget the value of endurance. Your best bet is to spend a significant amount of time growing your aerobic base—your ability to ride hours at a time. Use the early season and the tail end of the off-season to focus on these endurance rides so you're ready for high intensity training as your season starts.
