@yajvan. I’m 54 and will be racing in masters 55 plus in NJ USA this year. I’ve been on Team ODZ for two and a half years and been a student in the endurance labs since last fall. Before the endurance labs officially started team ODZ was sharing training plans and having the whole group do it together the season prior and I participated in that as well. I’m the captain of a local bike race team of mostly masters. I’ve been cycling for over 30 years and Racing for the last 20
Cycling is a hobby for me, I love it but I don’t let it rule my life and I make sure family and work comes first.
All that said, I have enjoyed the endurance lab more than having a one on one coach. It is very cool to be part of a whole group all doing mostly the same work out plan. The knowledge we share together is amazing, and it’s all because of social media and software like Zwift
After being into cycling so many years it’s amazing that the last two and especially this last one is where I learned so much more than I’ve ever known about training about cycling about my own personal limits
In the last two years I’ve lost 12 pounds, I’m physically strong, mentally strong, and my love for cycling has grown insanely. And again with the new smart trainers , social media, amazing technology I’m able to train much more than I ever have. My local teammates have seen the change over the last two years and they are blown away and I am one happy student of the endurance labs and one happy member of team 0DZ
Trust the endurance lab coaches and all the people you will meet in the group. It’s an amazing experience like you’ve never seen. The information sharing is awesome It’s also very inexpensive compared to a personal coach
There is my two cents.
