In the second video shot while on location in Hawaii as part of the team in a Global Ride DVD, Tom and I continue on the topic of whether you should ride at the intensity of your students, but this time we give you some tips on how to “fake it” when you don’t necessarily need to let your students know that you aren’t pushing it that hard. Because sometimes, they just don’t need to know.
I hear from instructors all the time that “my riders want to see me working just as hard as they are” but as you learned in the last video, if you do that too much, you won’t be able to coach them. So there are those moments when they just don’t need to know.
You’re going to see that Tom has a great sense of humor!
