I've been working tirelessly on polishing my 3 x 25 Training Plan; so tirelessly, in fact, you may have noticed my pin-drop silence on social media. Video editing, photography, writing, double checking that the intervals you're prescribing are right for each specific week — it's a lot of work. Especially when you have a day job and you're also laying in the training hours.
But I really, really think it's good work.
And I'm working so hard because I earnestly want you to have a fantastic race peak. I want you to have more fun on your race bike than you've ever, ever had.
It's been dominating my thinking so much, that I grabbed my phone and shot this impassioned monologue right after a base training slog: 3 hours of it, as a matter of fact. If you find it helpful, please forward it to a new racer or wannabe racer that you think might benefit.
So, if you've never tried following a training plan before, or if you or a cyclist you know thinks a training plan will be a drudge and a horrid grind and will make them want to walk away from their beloved bike after a few weeks of supposed torture, then check out and forward this little, un-produced 3-minute, hand-held video.
I've been a road cyclist with a penchant for speed ever since my first-ever paycheck holiday. I blew the whole wad on a turquoise Schwinn Tempo with then-new Shimano 105 indexed shifting way back in 1985. I've been a voracious consumer of racing-oriented information ever since. Training, nutrition, bike fit, racing techniques, and all manner of "kit." Between nearly 30 years of riding, racing, and reading about racing, I'm ready to help you get ready to race.
