Multiple studies reveal runners, triathletes, and other endurance athletes improve the most when they consistently do 80 percent of their training at low intensity and the other 20 percent at moderate to high intensity. David Warden, co-author of 80/20 Triathlon explains why and how you will become faster if you start doing more slow training. 
 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
-What is the 80/20 intensity distribution in practice
-What is the science behind 80/20 intensity distributions
-How most age-groupers fall way short of doing 80% of their training at an easy intensity: most do only 50%, if that. 
-Does 80/20 still apply if your total training volume is low?
-Practical advice for getting started with 80/20 training.

How do you apply endurance sports science in practice? Learn the complete process from knowing the balance between evidence-based and experience-based, interpreting and contextualising research, recognising poor research and interpretations, to applying it to improve your triathlon performance. 
 
 
IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:
 
  • The three-legged stool: scientific evidence, coach's experience, athlete's desire and experience. 
  • Don't proclaim yourself "evidence-based" and disregard experience (yours or others') for the sake of it
  • Interpreting research studies, understanding different study designs and terminology, like statistical significance and effect size
  • Statistically significant does not equal the absolute truth - research results is the observation of what happened, not the prediction of what will happen in the future.
  • The importance of context (demographic, environmental, athletic ability, etc.)
  • The importance of humility - don't be so quick to criticize. A great training plan is based on improving the individual athlete's performance, not on pegging them into the hole of the average research subject response. 
  • If you're not measuring you're not managing.
