M picked this up at El Tour de Tucson a couple of months ago. Chris Carmichael, coach of good ole Lance A., was signing his book at the expo before the race. M passed it along to me to give it a little pre-read before she delved into it.
My impressions thus far: The Time Crunched Cyclist is a great title. Most cyclists want to improve their cycling abilities but have limited time to train.
However, I am finding this book difficult to um, thumb through. I was looking for bold type. Quick one liner messages that said stuff like, riding hard intervals for 30 minutes repeated five times will get you to the front of the group. I was wrong. This book is detailed, has small type, and no photos. Ugh. It's gonna take some work. I'll keep at it. I guess I'm much better at short magazine articles and 72 point headlines. I'm sure Carmichael has valuable information for me to get from his book. It's just gonna take some work.
Sad smiley face and out.
