Winter Speed Work

Today is the first day of November and I'm officially starting to work my way back into training. Naturally you might assume that means that I'm building my mileage back up and getting ready to do lots of aerobic work and put in some foundational miles. Surprise! I plan on doing no such thing this winter. The next four or so months I'll be focused on technique work and low mileage with a lot of speed. This probably seems counter-intuitive, especially if you're used to the standard periodization model that most coaches and online programs prescribe. But I think most people are making a big mistake spending their off-season slogging through lots of mileage. So I've cobbled together this semi-rambling, pseudo-coaching slash training philosophy post to give you some food for thought.....

The 2012 season is over. Here are all the important events that have occurred since August:

-Rev3 Maine: Wonderful trip, really nice place for a race. Not a dazzling performance. Dropped in the swim, rode ok, rough run. Was humbled to see a true bike monster in action, I rode a mediocre 56 and Conrad Stoltz crushed a 52! Consolation: lobster.

-Mustache Relay: put together an all star cast of mustachioed athletes for a relay at the St Croix Olympic. We won. It was fun. I rode 55:11 on a super, super dicey course. There will be several of relay opportunities in 2013 so keep a few of your weekends open....
