SEEING OUR PROGRESS BUILDS BELIEVE IN OUR PROCESS. A perfect example is all the pushups and pullups I've been doing for about a month to get stronger for MTB season and life in general. No joke, I look slightly less like a T-Rex. But, the best part...
... they are getting easier, a lot easier.
Plus, I felt a lot stronger on Saturday's race course: punchy climbs and technical drops.
That's the seeing part.
The hearing part is different.
On a smooth section of road with few cars buzzing me, I pedaled my MTB this morning. The treads are wide, the pressure low. I could hear the power being put down on the road.
The sound was smooth.
Not vrmmmm, vrmmmm, vrmmmm...
It reminded me of a chat with Gibby Hatton about smooth pedal strokes. He said BMXrs put down the smoothest power because no clips. MTBrs second smoothest because no traction. Roadies the worst because no feedback.
If you have a trainer, you can easily hear your pedal stroke...
... and know if it's smooth or not.
Smooth is faster, more efficient.
I like to see stuff, whether it's results or visualizing the future.
But, the question I have for you is can you see Eddy Merckx in this calendar?
Can you see his eyes?
It looks outstanding in real life. 27" wide X 50" tall.
A perfect place to plan out the year's adventures.
