So, the last time I mentioned coaching, I got some feedback that I sounded like I was not a fan of power training. That’s not the case. I just find it hard to swallow when some coaches refuse to work with riders that don’t have a power meter. Don’t get me wrong, that’s their prerogative, but it kinda seems like a way to “weed out the riff-raff” to me and as a large chunk of the guys I work with don’t have tons of extra cash on hand. My point was simply that the workouts don’t change regardless of how you measure the work being done. Clearly, power measurement is a more accurate way to measure what’s being done than heartrate, which is more specific than RPE, but from my perspective it’s certainly not a deal breaker as far as coaching goes.
Yeah, so I realize it’s been awhile since that post, but what with being on the road I didn’t have a chance to address the issue until now. I’m sure you all feel better.
