You’re in for a treat next week. I’m putting the finishing touches on the next ICA profile. This will be more than a Quick Profile…it’s going to come with lots of great cueing. It’s a power-based profile that will help you teach your riders about power and wattage.
I’ve taught it twice in class but realized I needed to experience it in full myself since it’s not the kind of profile you can coach effectively at the same high intensity as your riders. So, I decided to take myself through the session at home and saved all my data.
It did not disappoint. It’s hard…but achievable. Only the die-hards would call it “fun,” but it certainly leaves you feeling proud of yourself!
So, before giving you the profile, I thought I’d post the ride data and see if you can analyze it and figure out the objective in advance.
For tips on how to analyze power profiles and what you can learn from analyzing them, here are two previous posts on the topic. In this one, I explain how it’s such an incredible way to learn about the effects of your profiles, and in this one, I give you two profiles of two different riders to analyze and compare.
Now, let’s have some fun…
