Winter Session Update and More!

Winter Session Update!

The Speed Shop's busiest Fall Season so far is coming to a close on Dec. 19.  We will be offering a limited (primarily weather based) schedule from Dec. 20th - Dec. 31st.
The results are in and 80% preferred the 10 week Winter Session.  Classes will begin Jan. 3rd and end on Mar. 13.  Thank you to everyone that chimed in on the survey.  The schedule will remain bascially the same.  We will add classes based on demand,  inclement weather, and for the "Top Dog" Time Trial.  You read it right! We will be having a Winter "Top Dog" Time Trial Competition. Registration will be opening on Dec. 13th at 8p.m. at BikeReg 

Functional Threshold Power (FTP) Testing Class

Functional Threshold Power (FTP) is a key factor in your cycling arsenal. Don't worry if you have never heard of it.  Once you learn how it can enhance your workouts you will be hooked.  FTP is a function of the highest power output that can be maintained in a steady state for a period of time.   
With so many regulars coming to the Speed Shop, it's time to offer another way to train even more efficiently.  During the last week of December look for a Functional Threshold Power (FTP) Testing Class.  The class is designed to determine your power zones in order to train more efficiently.    With a structured warm up, the test is done as a 20 minute time trial.  Once you have your appropriate power zones it allows you to apply them directly to each workout.  This is just another great piece of information in addition to heart rate and rate of perceived exertion (RPE). 
Classes are scheduled for Dec. 29 and Dec. 30, 2010. Registration will be at BikeReg.Com
