So have been using Trainer Road (indoors) since April 2022, have wanted to find someone to coach me since I started riding summer of 2020. One of the local pros (pro-conti) is going to start being one of the assistant coaches for the development team, so I asked him if he was interested in coaching individuals and he said yes, he was open to start coaching some ‘Masters racers’ (I’m 36 sad trombone sound) starting in December, so to message him then.
I suggested when talking to him that I currently do all my structured training in Trainer Road on the trainer and he seemed okay with that. My new road bike, that I haven’t finished building has a power meter but it is my first bike to have one so I’ve never done any structured training outdoors.
Was just wondering if anyone else had worked with a coach and used Trainer Road to do all of their workouts and how things went.
I’m thinking I can likely find workouts in the TR library that will roughly line up with what he will want me to do, I’m unsure if without a membership he can go through the TR workouts to look at what is there.
The big things I’m looking forward to are tactics, pacing, skills stuff that I didn’t learn as someone that started cycling a few years ago. Would really like to do some outdoor riding with him and get an idea of where my strengths and weaknesses are to apply to my racing and work on in training.
