A new format to the podcast (although familiar to readers of the Scientific Triathlon newsletter), I go solo and discuss three topics I've been thinking about recently in my coaching practice, and how you might think about them to become a better (and even happier!) triathlete. 

       

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-The ROI of swim, bike and run training, and how to optimise your distribution of the three sports

-Running hills to run faster and stronger

-Rethinking how you select races and events to sign up for
