Mountain Biking for the Curious Triathlete

As summer draws to a close, we’re getting close to that annual “off season” we triathletes partake in each fall and winter. It’s the time of year for dabbling in a new sport and flexing different muscles that we don’t have time to use when the weekly schedule is consumed by swim, bike, and run. Mountain biking can be the perfect sport for the offseason because it allows you to spend time off the roads with the added bonus of improving the (dreaded) triathlete bike handling skills.

How Many Ways Can We Skin the Same Cat

Over the years, several tests and concepts have been developed and used by coaches, athletes and physiologists to look at both Lactate Threshold, and just as importantly, the physiological characteristics of the athlete. These characteristics can then be used to create a targeted training program that “works” for THAT athlete by targeting the athlete’s limiters identified in the testing. One size fits all just doesn’t cut it here. In most cases, very aerobic athletes will respond best to more anaerobic training (if their peripheral system can handle it) and visa-versa. The purpose of this writing is to show you the most common concepts and charts….all really used to show the same thing! I think many coaches and athletes get confused with the various testing methods and concepts and don’t realize it’s all trying to show/determine the same thing for the most part!

Get Busy Livin'

I was once what you might call a bit of a ‘reluctant flier’. While I didn’t quite have a B.A. Baracus-type of anxiety around it, it wasn’t my favorite means of transportation. I wouldn’t not fly, but I would definitely check to see how long the drive would have been, for places where I wanted to go. And while I typically ended up boarding a plane to get to those places, it was rare that I actually enjoyed myself on it. You see, I hated turbulence. The plane would start shaking, and maybe do that little drop-thing that it does, and my head would instantly go to that scene from Castaway, when the FedEx plane plunged into the Pacific.
