Simon Wegerif is the founder of ithlete, a company that creates sensors and apps related to heart rate variability (HRV).

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-What is total load, and how is it relevant for triathlon training?

-What is the relation between HRV and total load?

-How do we know how much we can or should train, given all the stressors in our lives outside of training?

Q&A #13 - Bike power indoors vs. outdoors, and are recovery weeks necessary for low-volume athletes
 
  • If the difference between your FTP indoors and outdoors can be 20-30 watts, do you need to test your FTP separately in these different conditions? 
  • What are the factors that impact how big (or small) of a difference you will have? 
  • If you're only training 7-8 hours per week, do you really need a recovery week every 3 or 4 weeks?

Andrew Buckrell, co-founder of STAC, discusses heat. Our bodies do a great amount of work to get rid of excess heat generated when training, and strategies for maximising the body's ability to get rid of heat, and minimising heat build-up in the first place, are critical for optimal endurance performance.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-How much heat does our bodies generate in triathlon and how does that impact performance.

-The effect of ambient temperature

-The effect of speed and air flow

-The effect of sweating and humidity

-Strategies for minimising or reducing heat buildup in racing

-Strategies for minimising or reducing heat buildup in training

-What's the deal with slush drinks?

Q&A #12 - Heart rate or power zones, and incorporating additional races into a training plan
 
  • Why it makes sense to train according to heart rate rather than pace or power in your aerobic endurance training, as long as you are aware of some caveats.
  • Using power at your Zone 2 heart rate as a valuable metric indicating aerobic development. 
  • How to include additional races in a generic training plan for one key A-race.

Q&A #11 - Should you use different heart rate zones for swimming, cycling and running?
 
  • According to Dr. Phil Maffletone, the aerobic threshold heart rate is the same in all aerobic sports (like swimming, cycling, and running). Is this true? 
  • How the type of athlete you are and your ability and experience in different sports impacts whether your heart rate zones will be similar or not between different sports. 
  • Practical examples from lab tests and research studies showing massive discrepancies in threshold heart rate between sports (we're talking 10-20 bpm differences)
  • The problems with the MAF-formula or 180-formula for aerobic threshold heart rate.
