What do you do when you reach as deep as you can, but nothing is left? Those are the moments in training that teach your mind to be familiar with the pain and just go a little further.

Suffering can be more like learning if we frame our mindset ahead of time to be amazed by what we do rather than woe is me.

We recently read another article on about the New England Patriots and Bill Belicheck's philosophy that prompted this discussion. They practice with runs that are only directly related to plays in the game. For example, they may have the kick off team line up then sprint 70 yards. Then, they will have them jog back to the same line and do it one more time, just in case there is a penalty on the last play. 

We wondered how this philosophy could apply to triathlon, and of course, we believe it does.

  • Coaching philosophies across platforms - Belichick returns 
  • It’s Not Always Harder and Faster
  • Consistent ease 
  • The power of lower cadence
  • Keys to not taking days for granted
  • Race pace vs. Race Effort Training 
  • Why Belichick wouldn’t be a fan of super long runs 
  • Training to Hold Power 
  • Vanity FTP and how it distorts your race results
  • How cycling and running training work best together
  • How much running do you have to give up to raise your FTP?
  • Training for Hot Weather When It’s Cold
  • Sauna Training
  • Importance of Sodium
