Coach, Team or Individual
This week Bonnie joined a tri-team with a coach. She is really excited. She is the type of person who is motivated by a coach and must have someone lay out a training plan for her. There is nothing wrong with that. There are many people who need this type of guidance.
Now, I am the opposite. I do not mind training by myself. I also do not mind laying out my own training plan. When I set a goal I will (and can) get it done with outside help.
What I do miss is a teacher to once in awhile spot check me and tell me what to tweak. It would be nice to have someone to show me when my form is incorrect or how to speed train instead of going long. Generally the internet serves this purpose for me but I do miss someone observing me once in a while.
So what I guess I would like to have is a coach to do individual sessions only every once in a while to correct bad habits and form. Being part of a team would be nice but not necessary. I think I would enjoy that more just because I would have someone to socialize with.
How do you train? With a coach, team, individual, etc?
