How do you prioritize Endurance, Strength and Speed training for different courses and races? It should be a balance, but not always in even proportions. We look at priority and periodization based on goals. Why big gears aren't just strength work. Overusing muscles. Return on your swim stroke investment. Why you get sore arms while swimming and sore legs on transition runs. Connecting endurance, strength and speed training. 

Topics:

  • Mike says, “Yeah, man”
  • Do you prefer a race on the calendar?
  • Getting consistent
  • What sparked Mike to get going?
  • Prioritizing and periodizing based on goal

  • Overuse of muscles
  • Stretching and discomfort
  • Where to look if you have pain
  • Cycle stroke compared to swim stroke
  • Swimming with the water vs. through it
