Todays drills is part of our Badass drill awards and comes straight from the bike of MARY MOORE-FARRELL who has been teaching 8 years in Columbus, Ohio. 9 years ago she had an injury to her knee which ended a 20 + year love/hate relationship with running and so she began cycling.
First, indoors then with a gift of a road bike from my husband to the road. The way a ride (indoor or outside) can challenge you is never ending. The message she wants to impart to her community (and to those taking her classes) is "find the challenge!"
The story of injury driving us cardio junkies to the bike is common isn't it. Very common one for our Riders too!
BADASS! I love instructors who turn what was taken away (running in this case) into a way to give back! Hero's!
Mary's drill is a straight up fist fight aka the 65 RPM hill climb "loaded." I like her way of progressive loading. Come into this one very warmed up... and expect to recover after!
Lots of coaching on this one to make sure riders know they will be very uncomfortable and thats "ok." Pain is not! Make sure to offer the escape of a higher RPM (say 70 or 80 at a lower resistance!). Goal folks with finding their zone of "uncomfortable - but heavy breathing to be expected in the forecast."
The soundscape are the Chemical Brothers who are a really treasure for us instructors! So get them on repeats and go for a run. Inspiration up the you know what. I love them !
Mary... your drill is now OFFICIAL! Badass... you may go forth and continue with the practice of BADASSERY! :-)
Alternative Remix - longer, slower, and more shall I say... hard and intense 🙂
