Coach Chad, I need to apologize

Dear Coach Chad,

Today I did Gardener. I said some things and I thought even worse things. Given that today is Sunday, I feel the need to apologize.

I’ve previously done Mary Austin, Spanish Needle, etc… and was able to keep my composure. Today was different. Maybe it was fatigue from th season starting, maybe it was being punked by a squirrel on a walk with my wife earlier. Whatever it was, no excuses. I am sorry for what I said. Your tips and workouts are amazing, no matter what came out of my mouth at 170% FTP. I promise it won’t happen again…or at least not until next Sunday! :grin:


You are evidently not alone! None of the latest 17 workouts of Gardiner were finished at 100% intensity.
