A lucky few have the honor of calling Shannon Skerritt coach. Here, we take an in-depth look at singlespeeder Matt Cardinal's weeklong training run-in to the Veloshop race this Sunday. Matt has been working as Shannon's personal mechanic in exchange for the training advice.

Sunday-25 mile cyclocross ride through Forest Park
Monday-Easy day. Commute to work.
Tuesday-Easy day. Commute to work.
Wednesday-Easy day. Commute to work.
Thursday-Easy day. Commute to work. Forget to go to the Sellwood cyclocross practice.
Friday-Easy day. Commute to work.
Saturday-Easy day. Commute to work.
Sunday-No work. Race instead.

Things we can learn from this program:
-a lot of rest is important
-commuting is a great way to get miles on your bike

See? It's just that easy to be fast.
