OK, OK, so I volunteered for this.... I want to be coached..... I want to improve..... I even pay for it.... but it is, never-the-less a new feeling to have someone else dictating your workouts instead of planning your own.
Via TrainingPeaks Stacey inputs workouts for me to execute on a day-to-day basis. I'm imagining that in time there will be a little more advanced warning, but at the moment Stacey is still learning more about where I am starting, what needs most work etc. (and she's probably sitting at home, swigging whiskey and plugging herself into the nearest light socket now that she's starting to realise what a huge project she has taken on!) so it's like opening an Advent Calendar - every day a new surprise!
In all seriousness, I am very excited about having a coach and entering a new phase in my training. It's also fun!
Stacey is wonderful, but if I can get away with calling my wonderful wife "She Who Must Be Obeyed", I can sure as heck come up with a blog moniker for her! I have thought long and hard about this and numerous possibilities have been discarded along the way. "The Freak"?.. too easy. "The Pansey Punisher"?... not bad, but no...... I need something that conveys the power that Stacey has over her
Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce to you..... THE PUPPETEER!
