Q&A #51 - What are the benefits of long rides? Can you get the same effects by pre-fatiguing the muscles with intensity?  
  • The three key benefits of long rides: metabolic and fat oxidation, muscle fiber recruitment patterns, and endurance signalling
  • Can you replicate the benefits of a longer ride by doing a shorter long ride which includes e.g. one hour of tempo or Sweet Spot work to induce more fatigue early in the workout? 
  • What are the drawbacks of using this pre-fatiguing strategy? 
  • Using work done (in kJ or kcal) as the best way to compare 'equivalent durations' of workouts

  • What is the relation between antioxidants, antioxidant requirements and endurance training? Can antioxidant supplementation impair training adaptation, and should we avoid antioxidants? 
  • If I want to calculate my Time in Zone (TiZ) for a workout, what approach is recommended? 
  • How do I find the balance between running that is easy enough that my heart rate stays low, but not too easy so it's just a shuffle with poor form?
