It's time for that annual exercise called: "What are you doing to stay/get in shape for racing season which is right around the corner?" All right, we can shorten it to WAYDTSISFRSWIRATC. Anyway, I'm teaching a 12-week indoor cycling class at Midtown Fitness in Putnam entitled "Spring Training 2011". I have 10 students, ranging from 2 folks who are doing Battenkill, to a woman who does not want to get dropped anymore from the Monday night beginner ride. They all wear heart rate monitors. We've had 4 classes and no one has been absent once. Each week I give a little instruction in various training topics. This week was on the necessity of intervals. Next week's topic is speedwork, utilizing Coach Al's paper that I found on the internet (here). Nothing like a class of students to push me into better race shape.
Other than that, I am a snow shovelling fool!
I plan to be ready for the Ningret crits in April. How about you, Ed?
So, whatcha goin'?
