you know you have to do it, a longer ride on Wednesday complete with specific repetitions that will elevate your power profile in the 1, 3, 5, 8 minute region.
This has to be done with your best technique; if you think that can be done without having someone there to provide you with feedback, without a coach, then you will continue to get the same results as you did last year, the year before …… etc.
What is your obstacle to joining a coached ride? Think about it, your reasons, write them down! What could happen if you do?
Maybe that climb you always find is a problem, the time trial speed/power that eludes you, the pickup after corners, the ability to stay with a group, maintain a speed; I could go on!
Discover the 2020 you, a new decade and a new way of looking at your riding. It’s easy, register for Wednesday’s starting in January!
It’s a very exciting time of the year, thinking of possibilities for your next adventures. Become a master of your sport!
Watts on Wednesday will focus on your Power Profile; from 1 minute to 60 minutes, building the engine, taking the process approach to VO2 training.
One of the things that struck me, watching the US rider Chloe Dygert win by over a minute (she trains on a Wattbike) was that her strength is high over the distance, and it made me think that we may be imposing limitations on ourselves by our thinking. Are we being letting our age for example, define what we can do and how much it’s possible to improve? We will go into this program with the mindset of doing something we haven’t done before.
Late March to early April, a time when many use the words Training Camp to designate their intention at that time of year. Could it be that it’s an opportunity to Tour, to do daily volume and climbing, in preparation for spring? That could be the Spring Series, the Pacific Populaire, or another Tour such as the Haute, the Trans, the Dolomiti!
Or could it be that you just want to get out of town and trade grey skies for blue sky, same old (Richmond loop, again?) for new roads and car drivers for no cars, or very few cars?
What is your priority? Time, value, experience? There are still many rides I haven’t done, just as many that I have, and I can’t stay away from Girona. What I have enjoyed going back a 3rd time is the knowledge of the area combined with the memories of the people on the rides, knowing that there are still so many more to explore while enjoying riding and sharing those that I have done.
