I LIKE THE IDEA OF SECRET TRAINING. A lot. Like Rocky pounding sides of beef in a giant meat freezer, doing the training solo...
... the weird stuff few are willing to do.
If you have 3 things...
... It's romantic,
and can lead to massive performance gains.
A chip on your shoulder,
considered a chump,
not a champ.
A shot at the title,
at setting things right,
knocking out the feared competitor.
That's the magic formula:
- A chip on the shoulder
- A shot at the title
- And, hope.
But, who has that?
Sure, maybe a wish to wreak revenge on some rando racer can be conjured up. Given enough time, we can all gain some hope...
... but a title?
So, how do we do it?
How do we tap into that 3-step formula to being insanely ready to Rip On RaceDay?
Here's my plan.
I'm going to shoot for PRing a local climb. It's a big one, and takes me just over an hour...
... can I crack an hour?
Most of the fast guys around here can go, or have gone, sub-60 minutes...
... that's the chip on my shoulder.
Setting the PR would be beyond epic...
... that's the title I want.
Knowing I'm about to start doing the weird stuff, like actually using a power meter in my training...
... that's the hope.
Oh, there's one more thing...
... a date.
I'm shooting for late February, right before my A races.
