“Resting for me is fitness training.”
After pulling a long day behind the wheel from St George to Marin last week, I took the positive of getting home a few days earlier than planned to rest, catch up on things, repair bikes, and write workouts. Those of you who are personally coached by me have seen more strength programming with clear, easy to watch video clips and instructions via the Medbridge platform . One of the challenges of remote coaching is maintaining a high level of clear communication, and I’ve heard nothing but positive reviews from the Tempo Crew.
As the high school season gets going, I’ve been adopting this for the league programming and am excited to offer two region-specific plans for the Norcal League in 2022. Stay tuned for more details, but I haven’t been asleep the last two years.
I’ve also been calendaring bike fit days with local teams, usually paired with a local bike mechanic, doing basic fit and safety checks of all the riders. Risk management is key for these kids to have a positive experience , and I feel strongly that teaching skills and making sure bikes are functional is a big part of that.
