It seems athletes never tire of looking for the shortest route to Ironman. An updated take on the question of minimal Ironman training.
As I slowly recover from my time in the Pyrenees, I also start to speculate on organising an early season camp for 2013.
An addendum to yesterday’s post on analysing Ironman power data as I attempt to factor course profiles into the process.
A chart heavy overview of the analysis I apply to Ironman power data in order to better understand race performance.
The aftermath of thirty days of running – finally some run fitness. But it’s only the start.
A pictorial representation of the patterns and routines of my training over the last few years. A simpler graphical approach than some of my previous charts.
“It isn’t always like this.” A new form of training camp, a strange hybrid with a holiday where I relax and enjoy stress free training.
To clarify my own thoughts as much as advise my athletes I developed a (very) rough guide to how different levels of intensity and differing means of measuring them align.
I’ve long been convinced that training zones were designed to make me feel inadequate – I’m working hard, it’s not very comfortable, but apparently it’s ‘easy’, or worse I’m ‘recovering’.
Adopting a familiar challenge for April: thirty runs of at least thirty minutes over the thirty days; it’s worked before, don’t see why it can’t work again.
