Chasing Speed on the Bike

Chasing Speed on the Bike

I have heard over and over again about the aspect of not being able to push oneself in a particular discipline. For some it might be swimming, for others running, others biking. I’d like to address pushing ourselves, into the redline—on the bike. When it gets tough, do we settle back down to our comfort zone? It’s easy to do in solo training. And we begin to ask ourselves, “Why am I not going faster? I work hard but my times are not...

In this month’s Coach’s Note, LifeSport’s head coach explains how to structure your training January-March by assessing your strengths and weaknesses. In the 1960s Russian physiologist Leo Metveyev and Czech sport scientist Tudor Bompa, regarded as the fathers of modern periodization, organized the basic sport training periodization model to which we still refer. Since the 1960s, other coaches and exercise physiologists have created and...

So I wanted to take a minute to share. Maybe I should start at the beginning. I have been racing triathlons since 1998. That’s over 14 years. Only 1 year did I take time off from racing seriously due to illness. This year did not start out as a planned...

BETTER CYCLIST: BETTER TRIATHLETE

BETTER CYCLIST: BETTER TRIATHLETE

I often hear how challenging some aspects of biking are.  There are so many things we cannot control such as the size of the hill or the direction of the wind.  There are things that we can control.  The real question is how to train on our bike in order to get the most out of our body and our bike.  The ultimate goal is to become faster and more powerful with the hope of proving it in our best race yet.   My goal for my athletes to...

GETTING MORE OUTTA YOUR OFF SEASON

GETTING MORE OUTTA YOUR OFF SEASON

Athletes, I feel like there were two really important things that I didn’t bring up while defining the off season, that I’d like to now: First:  Being a competitive athlete for over 18 years has taught me: the off season is also about paying your family back for all the training time they supported you during the on season.  Race seasons can really drain your relationships.  Replenish.  Relax a little.  Sleep in.  Take time...
