We start by looking at our “big” training weekends and what we learned. It turns into an interesting discussion about energy expenditure during a race and when to cash in your energy chips. We look at how digging deep teaches you to be a better racer, how to measure and understand your run economy, and how most people spend money (energy) on the bike that they don’t have. 

Topics:

  • IMTX - The Heat is On
  • Mike and Robbie’s big training weekends 
  • Burnt Biscuits for Robbie
  • Mike’s “longest” ride since IMCHATT
  • Do we lose strength or aerobic?
  • Energy expenditure
  • The double edged sword of coaching
  • Inside Burn Out
  • Strides, High Cadence, Big Gear
  • More energy to go to the same pace
  • Run Economy
  • You have finite energy to burn in a race
