Staying with the theme of homework assignments, let’s discuss what immediate post race season tasks you can do with the goal of improving your overall performance in 2009. In general, there are two aspects of your review: looking back at this past season and looking forward to the next. The review should not be limited to the physical training of the sport. The non-racing season (versus calling it the off-season) is an excellent time to regroup and work on the elements of your game that are lacking. I use the term “non-race”, because as endurance athletes, the non-race season can be just as important as the race season. A lot of productive work can and should be done when racing and recovering is not the primary focus of your program. Here are a few of the many different elements you evaluate and plan for the upcoming months.....

Congratulations goes out to one of our athlete's up north of the border in Canada!

AthletiCamps will be leading a cycling workshop spread out over three dates that will teach athletes of ALL levels to train smarter. Participants will learn their true lactate threshold, heart rate and power training zones and how to apply them to their riding during two on-bike instruction training sessions.
Step 1 – Performance Test
Prior to the first training session date, sign-up for a private performance test with Bruce at a time that is convenient for you and your schedule. This specific 30-minute test is one of the most powerful tools available to athletes today to help them focus and improve their cycling, leading to more enjoyment on the bike! Your test will provide you with the information needed to ride smarter, including your true heart rate training zones.
Step 2 – Training Session #1 - Flat Terrain– 6:00 PM- Flower Farm (Loomis)
This two-hour on-the-bike training session will utilize specific data from your performance test to help you train more effectively on the flats. Specific tips concerning intensity levels, cadences, and quantity of training will be discussed.
Step 3 – Training Session #2- Hills – 6:00 PM – Flour Garden (Auburn)
This two-hour on-the-bike training session will also utilize specific data from your performance test to help you train more effectively in the hills. Specific tips about climbing cadence and technique will be discussed that will allow you to leave this session with a clear understanding needed to become a better climber!
