Going bluetooth and wire free is slick, high tech and should simplify your training. Adopting new tech however does open up other hardware and software training options which can start to distract you from your ultimate goal which is…to get faster on the bike.
The goal of training regardless of the equipment and methodology that you follow is to get better. My goal as a coach is to make the path to improvement as simple and direct as possible.
I’ve been a bit distracted with all of the cool, new hardware and software options that allow me to coach and train which has taken me away from my goal of pointing out what I feel is the most effective way to train. I seem to find myself in a constant battle to create and to organize posts and videos in a very logical way.
After having started this blog off during the end of the Base Phase due to waiting for the release of the Kickr and Stages my production has slowed down as I’ve placed a bit too much emphasis on the “process” of creating my coaching and training content so, that I could deliver it in as usable a format as possible…it’s gotten too “businessy”. I’m doing what I’m doing because I’m passionate about it and as I look back on these past few months I’m not seeing or feeling the passion in what I’ve put out there.
While my goal is to create a digital library and to ultimately write and sell training books the road there is all about being human and interacting with you along the way. I’m thinking that my delivery lately has been too formal and I’m going to adjust how I continue running AskCoachRob.
I will be simplifying my own process of creating and delivering my content.
I will begin to offer up more of what I’m doing as well as who I’m talking to and helping folks with who don’t necessarily follow me here like the many firefighters that I work with and advise on a daily basis.
