So now you're going to be self-coached, which means acquiring the basic knowledge possessed by any coach. That takes a lot of research and a lot of experience.

While all that's happening, have at it and watch what's happening. For instrumentation, I suggest a cheapie bike computer like a Cateye with cadence if you don't have one already. For a HRM, I suggest the cheapest Polar with a chest strap, again because you'll replace it eventually.
Yeah it's really hard to self coach, But i'm now watching Dylan Johnson's Training Videos to Learn more!
