Happy New Year 2011
Yes, I know, it could have been a lot worse. But lets just say this wasn't one of my better years and that I'm truly looking forward to a better 2011.
If you haven't started your 2011 Cycling Training Plan..get on it NOW! There isn't a better time to start. If you need help getting started, send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll help you get started. Unfortunately, I can't take on any more athletes for coaching. I'm booked for 2011. I'll do my best to include some blogs in the next week on how to get started. For now, however, you need to evaluate the past training/racing season to see what worked and didn't work- then re-evaluate. Then, you have to decide what your goals are for 2011 and how are you going to achieve them. This is particularly important for new cyclists. You first have to decide what you want..then determine how you're going to get it/there. Remember, what you want may not necessarily be what you get. i.e. if you're a 225 lb. rider with a big muscular upper body ..don't make it a goal to win the local (hilly) 100k road race. Likewise, if you're a 135 lb. rider with a little muscular lower body.. don't make it a goal to win the local criterium sprint. It probably aint gonna happen. Sorry! I'll devote a couple future blogs to this exact topic and tell you why.
For now, don't drink too much on Friday night..and please don't drink and drive. To all, have a Happy (and healthy) New Year 2011. I hope you meet/achieve all your goals.
Power ON! Coach Rob
