Rarely do ordinary efforts produce extraordinary results.
The above is true about athletic performance.
Achievements out of the ordinary are commonly characterized by effort, persistency and consistency outside of the norm.
The same principle could be said to apply in other areas of life too. Be it work, academic performance, social interaction – those who excel tend to put in more time and deliberate effort to develop their skills.
As of September 2020, I will be increasing my efforts to produce useful and knowledge-based resources on cycling training.
Pursuing your dream
My website was born out of curiosity for the field of applied training physiology as it pertains to cycling.
Alas, growing up alongside clinical work in musculoskeletal care, full-time medical school and two additional part-time jobs the site had a rough upbringing.
It has been a long held dream of mine to be able to spend the time necessary to develop the site to the resource it has the potential of becoming.
The time has come to make that dream a reality.
As of next week, I am reducing my clinical work significantly. For the time to come I will be part-time clinician and part-time writer. I am struggling to put into words how excited I am.
It is a difficult decision to put my clinical career on hold. At the same time, it is an opportunity I would have always regretted if I did not give it an honest shot.
Joining me on this journey is Mats Borgen-Johansen. Mats is an experienced sports physiologist with ample experience from working with high level athletes and teaching physiology. And best of all, he is an even bigger geek when it comes to absorbing new science than I am.
The planning for the new site started more than a year ago. So new content has already been in the making for quite some time.
Granted, it may take a few months for the new content to materialize.
However, if you are among those cyclists out there who is eager to learn more about how to best manage your training to achieve strong performances – I am hoping the wait will be worthwhile.
I cannot wait for what is to come – stay tuned for updates the coming fall.
