The BJL Coaching / Cycle Craft Winter Trainer Sessions started of with a bang! We had record attendance, with a bunch of new faces along with the usual suspects in the crowd. It was a pleasure working with these dedicated athletes, and I'm excited to watch everyone progress.
The drills for the night included one legged pedaling, high cadence work, "climbing", and some muscle tensioning intervals. Next week we'll build upon this workout as we slowly increase the intensity over the ten weeks to create long lasting fitness.
I also introduced the BJL Coaching Odd Number Challenge:
Attend 5, 7, or 9 classes to be entered into a raffle. Why not 10? Who's perfect? ; )
Two winners will receive one free month of custom coaching with BJL Coaching and a free Lactate Threshold Field Test. One prize per person. The threshold test will be scheduled by the end of April with the free month to follow the test.
With nine classes left, literally everyone is still eligible to earn 3 entries into the raffle. And, more importantly than that, attend the rest of the classes and you'll hit the "warm" weather with a solid foundation. But remember, even if you can't attend all the classes, every class you do make will be beneficial for your cycling and fitness goals.

Thanks again to all who attended for a great first class!

Coach Brian was approached by the Sealskinz sales rep for the area and was offered a partnership in helping to promote this great line of outdoor gear. Sealskinz has some incredible waterproof clothing, including socks, gloves, and hats. I've tried one style of socks and gloves so far, and they're amazing. Unlike a pair of waterproof oversocks that I purchased over 15 years ago, the Sealskinz socks get worn like "regular" socks and feel great. They have the ability to stretch like normal sock, instead of feeling like plastic bags on your feet. Even on a warmer summer day, my feet were comfortable and, on that particularly soggy day, dry. You can literally stand in a stream and your feet won't get wet. I'm super excited to try out more of their products and keep you posted on their stellar performance!
