Over the past couple of days, I’ve been planning a special ride for this week, one which will soon become an audio mp3 profile. I’ve been carefully selecting my songs for maximum impact. The ride is called The Ride of Intention, so just the name tells you the songs music be perfect! Last night, I outlined my ride out on paper and wrote out my coaching notes with intensity guidelines.
In a perfect world, we would ride each profile by ourselves at the intensity we are asking of our students, so we can see firsthand if it’s going to work, and if the music fits the profile. But who has time for that? I know some instructors who tell me they ride every profile by themselves first, but for those who work full time with family obligations, I bet this isn’t a luxury you have very often.
