Most of us aren't in our 20's anymore, but we tend to think like that when it comes to speed work. Today, we look at the Aerobic Base Phase of training and explain how it is the key to getting faster in triathlon. We hit on the 80/20 rule, track workouts, what happens when you skip progressions. When is going hard actually worth it?

Topics:

  • Base phase conversation starts at 12:00
  • Is Robbie going Vegan?
  • How we eat
  • Aerobic base importance
  • You can never be in base phase too long
  • Building endurance and skills
  • What athletes tend to bypass
  • Reverse periodization?
  • Training for Sprints and Olympics
  • When going hard is actually worth it
  • Not anti track, but build so it matters
  • Going slow to get fast
  • It’s all relative
  • 80/20 or 90/10?
  • There’s no such thing as “bad” aerobic work
  • Slow cooking your fitness
  • The margin of error base vs. fitness
  • You can’t keep pushing the boundaries
  • Is your approach injury prone?
  • Training availability is the key
  • Better safe than sorry
  • Don’t sacrifice the day for the week
  • What if you’re behind as the race nears?
  • Sacrificing your health with one bad decisions
  • Skipping progressions
  • The body doesn’t care
