My New Triathlon CoachNovember 6, 2008

This year I did a pretty decent job building my my own training plan and setting weekly goals, but upping my game in ’09 with two HIMs, especially with one so early in the year, was a little intimidating to handle on my own. I started looking around at triathlon coaches, at least to build a training plan that I could run with on my own for the rest of the year.
After being unpleasant surprised by how much some people pay for tri coaches, I asked some friends over at Triscoop for advice and alternatives, and luckily enough Brett offered to coach me! What freakn’ luck!
Brett is a pretty bad-ass triathlete, used to be coached by Mike “Coach To The Stars” Ricci of D3 Multisport and followed his workouts really strictly when training for IM Wisconsin last year. I know he took his coaching really seariously when he was on Race Athlete, so I’m psyched to see how much of that rubs off on me.
Brett is looking to test out his coaching skills, and I’m totally into being his guinnea pig for a season. We had a long chat on Monday and I can tell he has some big plans for me. I’ve got some serious workouts ahead of me, I can tell.
I feel like he is stirring up some evil plans to tear me down and build me up again so I can destroy the Timberman course next August.
Needless to say, I’m totally psyched about this new experiment. 2009 should be a crazy year.
