Going Long: Middle and Long Distance Training Episode 24

In this episode of the Triathlonology podcast, Coaches Oliver and Jacqui discuss the challenges and strategies of mastering longer form racing, such as 70.3 and Ironman type races.

They emphasize the importance of swim training, as it is the first discipline in a triathlon and can significantly impact the rest of the race.

They also discuss the need for strength and endurance in cycling, suggesting big gear sets and tempo sessions. For running, they recommend hill sets and easy runs for conditioning.

They also stress the importance of rest and recovery, particularly sleep, as well as proper nutrition both in daily life and during the race. They suggest being adaptable and having a backup plan, as no plan survives first contact.

They also highlight the benefits of having a coach to help put all the pieces of the puzzle together.
