Saturday I got to try something I’ve never done before: motor-pacing. I felt like a fo’-reals professional.

Except that I was nervous and scared, and got snot all over me when trying to blow my nose like the professionals do.
Coach Ann suggested moto-pacing as a new way to get a hard workout in. She hooked me up with Garrett Getter who has his own motor pacing business, www.govelosports.com. Garrett was awesome. He showed up on his cool Honda scooter, with his Garmin ready to sync to my heart rate strap, and my scheduled workout memorized. He told me to stay as close to his bumper as possible, which was easier said than done. After awhile I got the hang of it and was able just focus on goin’ hard.
The experience was pretty cool. It was kind of like being on a treadmill with your workout programmed in, but it was outside and you had a coach there shouting encouragement. I can’t wait to do it again!
