Blog Your Training

Hey Team

We know that all of you have busy schedules and often can not make it to any of the 3-4 team training sessions that we have every week.

I know for example, that Joel Pritchard (we miss you Joel) can not drive over from Illinois every week any more than Steve Lewis can drive up from Kentucky (nice to ride with your Saturday BTW Steve!)

I also know that you all realize that you need to train in order to meet your goals at your destination (for you national riders) and your goals for the season (for our state supporting team) and former riders, (because we know you still love us).  So what Sam and I would like to do is offer you a way to share your training with your team mates on a regular basis.
  • This will help to keep you accountable for your training, give you an opportunity to log your miles/activity and encourage your team mates while staying a bit more connected.
  • This also will give us the added benefit of looking for trends and opportunities that may help us to train together as the larger team on a more regular basis.
  • In addition, you can share the blog on Facebook, with your friends and family, to use all of the teams experience and efforts to garner more support for your ride.  Gary Martindale always writes a really nice summary of his experience in Death Valley and shares that with his supporters. 
You can start the daily training blog if you are first on with a title like...

Training Tuesday 4-30-13 Blue Tuesday Hills

Did 32 miles to the top of observatory and back, my crazy team members talked me into riding the big hill 3 times.  You bet it hurt, but I am so glad that I did it!


Wednesday Training 5-1-13

Trained by myself today, rode 10 miles through housing additions and on bike paths at a leisurely pace.  Got to see some real neat houses and got chased by a rabbit and a squirrel.  This brings my total miles to the season to 100!

These are just a couple of examples

You can also just post replys after the initial thread is started for the day so that we can see what our team mates are doing and thinking in preparation for their various rides.

You guys are a great team, let's let the rest of the world know just how great and make the Indiana Cure Chasers the team everyone wants to be on!
