I went to Fit Werx in Peabody, MA – my old stomping grounds! Met Dean Phillips (who has the Men’s 40-44 3000m Pursuit Best Performance World Record), Marty Miserandino (multi-time Ironman), and my personal fitter Mike Meuse! The guys were all awesome and informative and just great folks to add to my personal support crew 🙂
Many things were measured: inseam, feet length/width, arm length, and angles of all my appendages measured while taking a movie of me pedaling on my bike. After reviewing my “as is,” Mike made adjustments to my seat height and handlebar position (moved it further away from me). I also got my FIRST PAIR of clip-on shoes and pedals and triathlon shorts. It is like I am ALMOST a real bicyclist!!
When I got home, I rode my Kickr Core Smart trainer but with so many new factors (pedals and position) it was hard to really know the full result. I have immediately seen about 1kw/kg improvement in power – wowza!
And Goggins came up….he is everywhere and still gets me all worked up.
Done with scuba class, back at it with a better back, honest reporting and en route to middle age badassery,
