Day Four: Jennifer Jacob's 45 Endurance 8.1.17
In my head I like to call Jennifer Jacobs the Professional. You can count on her to get the job done--whatever the job happens to be. Today's job was holding back and keeping steady. She always has a smile and a range for you. I appreciate that she makes allowances for me to hang out at about 85 RPM on the cadence as this is where my legs like to be usually. 90 as an ideal cadence is a number taken from the road racing community as the ideal number, but later research has shown (at least according to my Ironman coach) that there's some flexibility in terms of what is the ideal number for you. JJ The Professional knows this.
And that smile. She has the best set of choppers and she shows them off to you so much you feel like a toddler showing your momma your drawings for the fridge. Even when really you aren't doing much but making sure your heart rate hasn't spiked.
