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

The next generation of Stryd's running power meter is here, and it can now account for the differences in running power required depending on air resistance, wind, and drafting. Evan Schwartz from Stryd joins us to discuss the new device and the implications of wind on running with power. 

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-How much additional power do you need to produce in various wind conditions compared to a still day? 

-How much power can you save when drafting another runner?
