How do you start training, increase volume or increase intervals without burning out ?
what is my threshold?
= not everyone is a 60 min threshold and not everyone can hold 95% of their cp20 for 60 minutes. If you are struggling with zones of your cp20 or what you think is your threshold try using 10% of cp20 , or trying a longer TT 30-40min long for a better estimate.
= Software is WKO+ that Peter referenced and uses with all his Smart Athlete Coaching Clients, it will help model your threshold much more accurately then generalized formulas based off TTs .
Question about Frequent Sickness with Kids – how to ease back into training ?
– mentioned zinc lozenges, Vitamin C and Hand washing.
– watch training load – be happy with consistency more then suffer-festivals
Nutrition changes where to start ?
Intervals on hills . Remember flat power and also that the time in-between intervals is important consideration .
