Jacob Tipper is a coach of athletes across the spectrum from track sprinters to triathletes, and he is also a great track and road cyclist himself. Jacob was the person tasked with putting together Alistair Brownlee's team for the Sub7/Sub8 project (Brownlee was replaced by Joe Skipper due to injury before the event), and in this episode we discuss that whole process and what we can all learn from it.  

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-The process of putting together a team for Sub7, as well as training and testing done leading up to it

-What it took (power numbers and race power profile) to be a part of the team, and what Joe Skipper needed to do to hold on at the back of the paceline

-Tactics used on the bike leg

-The importance of training at a high speed (like moto pacing) due to pedalling kinematics

-The battle between Team Skipper and Team Blummenfelt

-What lessons can regular age-groupers take away from the Sub7/Sub8 project and how Jacob and his team approached it in particular

Daniel Muniz, PhD, is a senior lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire. Some of his recent work involves big data analysis (from Strava) of marathon runners, where Daniel and his co-authors set out to explore how decoupling (changes in the ratio of internal to external workload, like heart rate to pace) can be an important parameter in marathon (and possibly broader endurance) performance.    

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-What does decoupling mean and how can it be calculated? 

-How a lesser degree of decoupling is associated with better marathon performance

-What are the physiological underpinnings of decoupling? 

-What do we know about training interventions to reduce decoupling? 

-Is decoupling independent of other markers of performance (like Critical Speed) or can it be improved by improving more traditional markers of performance? 

-Using big data from Strava to calculate Critical Speed based on training data only

-Training Load overview: what is it, why do we want to measure it, and a brief history of training load metrics

-The limitations and validity concerns of currently available training load metrics

-Redefining the gold standard for quantifying training load

-Suggestions for future work on coming up with valid and useful training load metrics

-Advice for athletes, coaches and practitioners on use of training load metrics today
