To Coach is to Teach

I’ve been teaching or coaching in some form since shortly after my sophomore year in college.

Youth soccer camps, basketball, physical education, and health. When I first started coaching, technology resided at the fringes of each of my coaching relationships. Fast-forward nearly twenty years, and the core of my cycling coaching is rooted in technology.

The Language of Training

In the last decade, I’ve learned that prescribing workouts (the “what” of training) is likely the easiest part of coaching.

Sure, programming, planning, and periodizing take some level of knowledge and skill, but quality differences between training plans never matter more than a cyclist’s ability to nail the number one objective in training: consistency.
