Q&A #45 - Intensity unnecessary (?) for Ironman, warm-ups, lactate test timing, and adjusting a training week
  • Is it really necessary to do any intensive training when preparing for an Ironman? Can you just do base miles? 
  • When is the best time to get a lactate test? 
  • How should you time your warm-up for an Olympic race, considering wave starts, transition area closing and so on? 
  • How do you adjust a training week if you are prevented from doing one discipline (e.g. swimming) but could supplement with another (or two)?
  • The impact of heat on carb/fat oxidation ratios (a correction to Q&A #44)

Q&A #44 - Carb/fat combustion based on pace and heart rate; VO2max intervals on flats or uphill
  • If heart rate was in zone 4 and pace in zone 2: did you use mostly carbs or fats for fuel? 
  • Can you do track/road intervals on hilly trails, and if so, should they still keep the same structure or can they be free form? 
  • Should mobility work count towards your total training duration?

  • The fallacy of traditional lactate testing
  • A systems based training approach based on the individuals range of lactate concentration
  • How many endurance athletes lack at least one system and are therefore bioenergetically limited and therefore compromising their endurance perfomance
