Training for a single event is straightforward, but what about a whole season of racing? Join us live for a discussion on this, fitting commuting into a training plan, how to build explosive power and more in Episode 184 of the Ask a Cycling Coach Podcast!
Hello guys! I just listened to the episode this morning. I assume this was an error but for once you included the “post-show” Q&A. I liked that a lot
I had to smile at the “early morning training” segment. Based on your comments, I am a total freak. I get up between 4 and 5 and don’t eat or drink anything. I am on the bike (or sometimes outside running) within 5-10 minutes. I guess I would get along really well with Jonathan’s wife…
I agree! I posted a similar comment this morning, but for some reason I can’t find it?
Hopefully the live stream Q&A in the standard podcast feed episode was intentional as not everyone can watch it live and having to go to YouTube and scrub to the end for the 10–20 minutes of content is a PIA. It’s all great content, so just keep it in the standard podcast feed version of the episode.
I actually made a mistake while editing/uploading and the partially trimmed audio file uploaded instead of the finalized audio file. As we have said in the past, we take these questions out because we want to encourage people to tune in live so unfortunately, these questions will still be taken out in future episodes as well.
The audio on SoundCloud and Spotify is edited and equalized to make it sound better and YouTube doesn’t allow us to edit anything on the audio side. We have maxed everything out on our end to increase the volume on YT so unfortunately, there isn’t much more we can do.
You guys talked about the amount of time available to complete an ironman race before the cut and I remembered about a guy I saw on Instagram that started to fall asleep during the bike ride and the course passed closed to his hotel so he stopped to take a nap and then came back to complete the race. Never checked the veracity of the facts but if you think about it, it is something totally possible.
Back in my racing days I was on the trainer at 0500 4 days a week. ( Computrainer in those days).
Had a carb drink, during the session, then a big bowl of granola after. Most days it was 2 x 20 min at threshold with a 10 min warm up to dial in the Computrainer.
Not Nate but I have had a septoplasty before. If you are just having a septoplasty, it isn’t too bad. I was still doing triathlons when I had mine and I think I was back in the pool maybe 10 days after surgery, riding a bike about 5 days after. I was up moving around the day after surgery, at the bar about 4 days after…
Shame it was a mistake. It was a great Q&A extra. You go live on YouTube when I’m leaving work for home (UK) so will never be able to watch live. Much prefer audio over video. Is there a way you could live stream audio?
As the podcast has evolved and got better there is less time for questions so having more questions was extra good.
