Listened to a podcast the other day (sorry, can’t remember which one), about how the way Kenyan runners train. By having the support of their group, athletes are able to train to a higher level.
Of course scientists love to label things so the terms: Bio - body, Psyco - mind, Social - group, have been applied.
So now if you want to go enjoy a ride with your mates, you can do so safe in the knowledge that you’re doing cutting edge science/traditional methods. Choose your term, but as is often the case, they’re fairly interchangeable.
Tongue in cheek post, I’m in a naughty mood, but it is actually how I’ve always tried to train. Group sessions have always allowed me to dig so much deeper and now there’s a fancy term to describe it.
Long live the Sunday club run!
