Rosarito Bike Ride training update

Posted by bizcoachjason on September 8, 2007

I know it’s been too long since I posted an update about my training for the Rosarito-Ensenada bike ride.  Well, after my last posting July and corresponding ride (42 miles), I was hit with a very busy schedule, some vacation travel, had my bike in the shop for a tune-up, and Chicago had A LOT of rain.  With all those factors, I did not have the chance to ride at all for over three weeks.

OK… here’s the coaching value in this post.  Those were all BIG factors, but what it really came down to was that I hadn’t planned out a specific goal with time-bound action steps.

In order to get back on track, I have added ride dates, times and distances to my calendar between now and the ride.  I’ve scheduled three rides and one workout at the gym a week.

Since my conditioning has been almost all wiped out, I started back down at 10 miles, then did 20 miles a few days ago, am doing 30 miles today, and so on…

Another coaching point: What are the obstacles?  Well, my schedule is looking to get ever busier over this time frame.  So I need to make adjustments as I go, and keep very focused on completing my training so I can have the experience that I want when I complete my ride in Mexico.

I will update the blog and keep focused!
