Just wanted to drop a line thanking Lynda for all of the coaching and guidance that lead to a really awesome early season performance at Stagecoach in SoCal. I finished in 2nd place at 59 hours and 4 minutes. ~390 miles and 30something thousand feet of climbing. We had rain turning to mud the first day and chilly weather with 20+ mph winds the second day. Every little bit of training came into play at this race. Hike a bike practice….check. 20 min L4 intervals….yup.
Two things I was most impressed with was the ability to push the last 36 hours with zero sleep and being able to push the last ~6 miles/1500′ of singletrack at a very hard race pace (~65% FTP) for over an hour. I didn’t know I had either of these things in me but I do know that Lynda’s coaching prepared me for it.

Thank you Lynda!
