Total Tri Race series on Zwift and 5-10km run off – here are the rules and regs for the 3 weekly race we are doing in Spring time…..
The relationship between rider and saddle is crucial to both enjoyment and performance in cycling. Yet being typically British we don’t tend to talk about matters ‘down below’ and often accept that the Human body and the bicycle are simply not wholly compatible with each other…….
Having been involved in the participation and coaching of our interval sessions this week I thought I would feedback on some of my TP data to help you begin to look at and to understand yours. I will just give you some of my stats/figures as background and then talk you through the 2 sessions highlighted below………..
In the current situation with Coronavirus, when asked to rest and recover most athletes just want to fill their day with something so they get back on the bike or go for their daily run just to get out the house……..and inevitably go too hard.
