After an exhausting weekend of almost four days of lectures, working groups, and power point presentations I am now an official USA Cycling Level 1 coach. Am I a smarter coach? Maybe. But I did get to meet and network with over 50 talented coaches all sharing ideas, philosophies, books, websites and scientific research that will help me do a more effective job training my athletes. (Hope you all are ready!) Our co-presenters; Kristen Dieffenbach and Stephen McGregor were fabulous and did an outstanding job of pushing us out of our comfort zones. I feel very inspired and motivated. That was all tempered, however, when I got home and had to spend most of the evening trying to get Emmett our 3 yr old to sleep and wondering if there will ever be a day when I will get more than 5 hours of sleep at any one time. Haha! I guess you can sleep when you’re dead.
Here’s to new knowledge and the chaos that goes with it.
Happy training everyone!
