    Episode 12 - Cycling training with no season?

    Episode 12 - Cycling training with no season?

    Hello listeners.
    Today's episode is the start of a Q&A series with Dave Triska, a GP and fast time triallist who got in touch to ask about re-structuring training when there may be no season ahead.
    We discuss training and immunity and potential replacements for the season including zwift racing.
    Here is the races I asked Dave to take part in before we speak again to discuss his physiological strengths and weaknesses.
    Race 1 - Pure sprint - any of the city crit series e.g. london flat

    Race 2 - 45sec efforts x3/4 plus sprint - Innsbrucking course. This has a nasty 45 second hill on each lap, where everyone hammers it.

    Race 3 - 1x 5-6 minute Vo2max effort - either London hilly loop (friday at midday) or 1 lap of the whole lotta lava course.

    Race 4 - 2x 6 minute VO2 efforts - whole lotta lava 2 lap course.

    Race 5 - Any Alpe race - e.g. KOM race road to sky on weekends, this should be around 40 mins for you. Good FTP test.

Best Balanced Tri podcast

I love how real this podcast is. I can relate to most of the topics. The commonsense is really science. I enjoy the health and fitness thorough talk through. The information is thought provoking and adaptive. The importance of health in athletics is emphasized as it should be. A strong athlete feels good. Thank you SO much for this podcast! I love it!

Like the different ways to train for marathons

Like the different ideas about running besides just doing lots of runs

Podcast I've been looking for

I don't mind occasional pro interviews, but they get a little tiresome to hear on every single episode of every single tri podcast--at least for me as an age grouper. This show is just good, solid, interesting information.
