Training Begins Tomorrow!
I am finally starting my training tomorrow and I can't wait. When I started my time off from the bike three weeks ago I was so glad to be away from it. Last season was great but it was a long one.
Yet this past week I could hardly keep my hands off my bike. I cleaned it the last two days and before that I was finishing up writing my training plan for the next several months. I'm hoping this plan will fix my extreme lack of power generation in efforts over a massive ten minutes (maybe less)! This will be the first year that I will be trying to stick to a training plan. Hearing Tim, Scott and Hunter at the Peaks presentation got me thinking that I really should try one out. It should be interesting and I am excited to see if I can get myself to ride 15 to 20 hour weeks repeatedly. Yet the thought of not only upgrading to a Cat II but also doing well in a 1/II/III race is an excellent motivator.
I even rode the rollers tonight to make sure I hadn't forgotten how but only for five minutes (I'm trying not to ruin my plan before it even begins). I put the rollers between my door frame and really only had to shoulder the door a few times to stay upright (success)
Oh and I saw this picture today - perfect technique
