How to Leave Post-Activity Comments For Your Coach and Be "Coachable"
This week, Coach Frank outlines using the 4 components of monitoring training in his athletes to help you better provide feedback in the post-activity comments section of TrainingPeaks or other software so that you can communicate more effectively with your coach, progress as an athlete, and prevent setbacks or problems in training and racing.
We talk about the importance of sports psychology, tracking fatigue, life stressors, and environmental conditions and then provide some insight on how to be "coachable" from the perspective of an experienced coach.
