It's been a full month since my last blog comments.
The "Metric Century" turned into a 37 miler due to a wrong turn.
Hey I still had fun, but I do think the course could have been better marked.
I'll try again next year and see if I can find a different spot to goof and go the wrong way.

The coaching has proven to be quite educational over the first month.
I riding more outdoors than before, making me and my mental health far happier.
I'm doing lots-o-endurance rides limited by Heart Rate and Power.
Basically establishing and documenting a base fitness level.
This is a more low tech and flexible approach than the prior electronic training plans and ERG mode rides.
Not sure what strength training will look like yet, but I see it starting to creep in a little on the plan for month two.

I'll be honest, I thought I had a reasonable base of fitness and I'm eager to begin seeing results in the strength dept.
But this is apparently a proven process and patience is required. OK, no point in paying for a coach and not doing as asked.

Fingers crossed.
