I want to thank you for 3 great sessions of Progressive Spin. Working with the
intensity factor really helped me more this year than in years past. I'm feeling
stronger on the bike to start the season, a lot better than last year!
After class, one of the women spoke to me about doing the Duxbury time trials. She said she does them and thought I could do them also. Needless to say, I was intrigued by the idea. Could you give me directions to the course? I'd like to go down this week, check out the course and practice on it. Is it arrowed?
Thanks again. Hope to see you on the road. –Allison
I saw today's tempo run on the schedule (4 miles @ 7:33) and freaked out, thinking I'd never be able to do that especially so close to racing because it's always taken me a lot longer to recover but apparently you have gotten me into the best shape I've ever been in! I didn't hit 7:33 until the 4th tempo mile, but the first 3 were 7:36, 7:37, 7:36 so not far off and I was amazed! I went into expecting to barely be able to hold 7:40s and yeah, it was hard especially when I had a stupid headwind but I did it. I guess I just need to have more confidence and faith in the shape I'm in. But I just wanted to let you know how good it feels and how I think I've improved so much in the last 6 months! Thank you, thank you so much. –Ashley
Coach! The absolutely rockstar excellence of this last schedule compels me to send this missive. This most recent schedule is, without doubt, the greatest I have ever received: clear, exciting, challenging and compatible with my emergency department schedule. Radiance! as they say in Madrid: Gracias! –Charlie
On behalf of the entire Run for the Memory program, thank you so much for speaking at tonight’s team meeting. I heard a lot of great feed back post-meeting (never mind being personally inspired myself to get back into the tri-rink!) I hope you will stay in touch and come back again next year. –Michelle J. Gonzalez
I just wanted to say thank you for all your help. I completed the Nantucket Triathalon this past Saturday and I couldn't have done with without all your expertise! I have learned so much from you. I am so happy with my first experience. See you soon and THANK YOU AGAIN! –Jessica Conn, Triathlete
I took your [cooling] advice during the run at Buffalo Springs. It was hot and windy and without the cooling effect I would have been toast. Thanks for all your sage advice about racing in the heat! –Dan R, Triathlete
You were so specific about my fueling plan for the race, and I always thought, can it really make that much difference? I wish I had listened to you from the beginning. Whatever you are doing, it's working. –Dave S., Triathlete
You are bringing me to a point I never thought I would get. Thanks, it continues to surprise me that I can manage running 25-30 miles per week!" –Peter Racicot, Triathlete
