So with Gran Fondo season winding down and the leaves starting to fall, you might still be enjoying some of that 'super form' you experienced during your fondo adventures. If so, nothing beats the effortless pedaling sensation of peak fitness, especially when free of pre-event performance anxiety. But if your summer training and Gran Fondo experience didn't work out as well as you hoped, have you considered working with a personal coach?
This summer I only worked with one Gran Fondo client but as always, when the rider listens to their body and follows the training plan as best as possible, great improvements can be made in limited time. In this case, Ken wasn't able to pedal on his bike consistently until mid July, almost 2 full months later than his 2011 campaign, due to a winter skiing accident. However a steady build phase, followed by some specific intervals improved his fitness rapidly and he chopped a whopping 18 minutes off his 2011 time in the RBC Whistler Gran Fondo. Did I mention that he is over 60 years old!
Although I am open to working with new coaching clients at any time in the year, I have just published the details on my 2013 coaching programs
. My rates are still very affordable but now with 3 years of specific cycling coaching experience, I am able to better assess a rider's talents and weaknesses to help you strive towards a great cycling experience.
