All the prep and training is done. We are finally here and it is time to get after it.
Some of the athletes are calling this first day, "The Day Of Reckoning" because this is when we finally get going.
At the beginning of these trips, the energy of the group is usually pretty high but a bit reserved as everyone is still feeling out the pace of things and the group dynamics.
Spending time with everyone on the bike is a great part of these trips too. Suffering along side someone on a brutal climb is a great way to get to know each other!
Everything the athletes have done to prepare, both physically and mentally, up to this point is finished. Now it is time to see how that preparation and hard work will translate to the road.
The first few days people are usually feeling pretty good. We are also getting a better sense of the group pace.
But once we get deeper into the course, we are going to see what everyone is really made of.
I am excited to see these the athletes dig deep and attack something this challenging. One of the best parts of being a coach is seeing people break through barriers and obstacles they never thought they could do.
We still have more episodes still on the way. So let us know what you want to see by leaving a comment below.
