Coach or no coach that is the question(2 posts)

Coach or no coach that is the questionskip work to ride
May 31, 2002 4:06 PM
How many racers (1+ years racing) have a coach (some one in a higher cat) to help during the season. The area I race in seems to have a lot of people racing with coaches??? (Even Cat 5's!)

Once the season starts, how many people FOLLLOW their structured program. You know the one that you built from Friel's book, or CTS, or whatever? I seem to just to take every week as they come based on races and health...

Do you go to off season camps? If so what you would advise on looking into them. My season begins in February and ends by late August...

I have a coach and it made all the difference. I get my week drawn out over the net and I just happen to live in the same area as my coach so I get to ride with him ( he is a pro ). It put all my questions to rest and he is an excellent coach. I use Friels trainig and I think its friendly, easy to use and good fr downloading info ( SRM,powertap,polar power meters)

I highly recommend it
