You Can Be Faster, More Efficient and Safer on the Bike With a Cycling Skills Lesson

Fast and fun descents, smooth shifting and accelerations up and over hills, tight corners with sprints out, these are the skills of experienced cyclists. Emergency stops at full speed, controlled skids, and navigating over road hazards and debris at speed, these are also the skill of experienced cyclists. The most common requests I receive each year from cyclists and triathletes … Read More

Perform Better!

With the Squat to Hamstring Stretch Last weekend I had the pleasure of once again attending the 3 Day Perform Better Summit in Providence, R.I.  This is three days of lecture and hands on training with some of the leading sports trainers, coaches, physical therapists and chiropractors.  These folks are all still learning and teaching, and I learn something new … Read More

IT’S OKAY TO RUN LIKE THE FLASH, BUT DON’T BE A FLASHER!

I ONCE EARNED AN AWARD FOR “MOST LIKELY TO BE CHANGING IN THEIR CAR”.  It’s an old habit that came from my early years trail running in the Sangre de Cristo mountains of Colorado.  My boyfriend at the time, a skyrunner, told me to pack spare clothes for post run.  The ritual was as follows: Climb a 14er; Run the … Read More

SUMMER IS HERE AND OUR ATHLETES ARE ROCKING IT!

Joe successfully completed his brutal multi-day riding tour of Umbria.  There were up to three segments per day with insane climbing.  The views and food were worth the hard work!

Because it’s All About That Base…….

Welcome to Spring Training! Last Friday night, my evening started out with the Hall of Fame cyclist Lon Haldeman asking me and 42 other cyclists, “So how many of you have been riding 600 miles a week this winter?” Not a hand went up. He then followed up with, “Well, you’re about to this week, so listen up.” We were … Read More

What do you call a goal without a plan?

Here in New England, Daylight Savings Time has wreaked havoc on us this week, and many of us with a 6:45 AM sunrise workout have been plunged back into darkness for another few months.  But Spring is here, it’s less than 12 weeks ‘til June, and race season is just around the corner! Do you feel 12 weeks away from … Read More

“Is Your Butt Dead?”

What I Learned Being Hooked Up to a Biomechanical Analysis Machine As an athlete, have you heard this one yet?  Perhaps it was when someone performed a movement analysis with you, or when you had an injury after a long run or after a long ride.  Maybe you’ve been told you don’t have a correct foot strike or proper running … Read More

On Training Through Grief

This month we lost my brother at age 53.  His death came as a shock as he kept bouncing back from illness. In a blink, my big brother that taught me how to ride a bike was gone. Grief and the grieving and healing process are unique to each person.  Some look to religion for comfort, others process through the … Read More

How to Stick to Your New Year’s Resolutions
