I have to admit maybe I have no clue as to what I really need for training.
I have been pondering the idea of either spending some money on better equipment or biting the bullet and getting a coach.
I am novice masters rider that began racing this year for the first time. I primarily train/ride with a club geared to racing. All I get from them for advice is "to get out and ride", but because I work shift work I do allot of my riding solo. I feel when I am out by myself I just don't push myself hard enough. I know that it is difficult to ride solo and push yourself. All I do when I go out is try to better my times from the last ride. I have several different routes that I take depending on time and how I feel.
So, my question is
Have you gotten good results from being coached?
