The shortening days and dropping temperatures of fall and winter (did we mention rain and snow?) can make working out on our own a challenge. More importantly, we often do not know how to structure our off-season for the best results – what to do, for how long, in what order, and when. But the off-season offers an opportunity that comes but once-a-year to hone skills, increase strength and stamina, and set a strong foundation for the spring and summer.
Startline Coaching is once again offering two popular off-season run and bike programs, this year with the option to extend beyond 12-weeks.
Both programs offer structured workouts via Training Peaks, along with regular testing to set benchmarks for each athlete’s zones and efforts. Coached, weekly group training sessions (in Prospect Park for runners and on Zwift for cyclists) build camaraderie, accountability, and learning. Winter and/or spring races are included for goal-setting and testing our mettle.
All levels are welcome: the beginner who’s gotten a taste of racing and wants to improve, the experienced athlete who wants to get back in shape after time away, the competitive age-grouper who wants to set their sights on new goals and challenges – and everyone in between. Each athlete is equally valued by the group. We cheer one another on, offer support when the going gets tough and the spirit lags, and celebrate successes and breakthroughs.
