Q&A #20 - Testing for half and full distance triathlon: are typical 20-minute tests relevant, and are there better options?
 
  • How relevant are typical field tests (20-minute bike and run Time Trials, 400 + 200 m Critical Swim Speed test) for half and full Ironman athletes? 
  • How skewed are these tests by athletes' anaerobic capacity? 
  • Can and should Muscular Endurance be tested? 
  • What is the role of race intensity training, if it isn't to improve threshold or VO2max?
  • How important is VO2max (aerobic capacity) anyway for long distance triathlon?
  • The little-known but massively important Ironman training and testing weapon: Lactate Building Rate, VLaMax
