Carmichael Training, Wenzel Coaching et al for this winter: worth it?
I am recovering from a total hip replacement, lost all of this summer, but I'm finally back on the bike, doing weight training and using the Cycle-ops trainer but winter is coming soon to Vermont. I've been thinking of getting some serious coaching for the winter using some of the sites I see listed on cyclingnews.com like Carmichael Training systems, Wenzel Coaching, and Colorado Premier Coaching. They all offer to customize a training regiman with weekly/monthly updates. Does anyone have any personal experience with these outfits? Is it worth the money ($40-75/month for the basic plans which include 1-2 hrs of telephone contact a month and then emailing etc). Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
