So as the season here starts to wind up I'm now training everyday. I actually got to ride outside yesterday, and I did 25 miles and it absolutely killed me. Ive been doing spinervals, and riding my trainer, but my workouts seem to lack focus, and I don't feel like I'm going anywhere (lolz).
So today I'm cruising around, looking for coaches. I find a few programs that look good, and are priced ok, but I don't know if I'm ready to shell out 100-150$ a month for somebody to e-mail me workouts. I ran XC in school, and I definitely know a coach helps me get off my ass, but I don't know if this is the best option.
I don't really know a whole lot about periodization, and HR zone training, and whatever, and I don't have a power meter. A good coach should be able to plan out my week/month/season and kind of tell me where I should be right? But I've heard that without a power meter there isn't a whole lot a coach can do to actually analyze my performances.
This being my second year of racing should I just stick to getting miles in my legs, and keep doing what I've been doing? I'm hoping to get to the 3's this year, and I'm hoping a coach can help me get there, because I don't know if my unfocused training will get me there.
Eh... long post, thanks.
