How are you handling your long runs?

How are you handling your long runs?

Back 2 years ago, I was having issues making the long runs work, and feeling like they were helping my training instead of hurting it, or at minimum not helping much. Then, I listened to this podcast and it changed a lot of things for me and the athletes I coach. Make...

POOLS ARE CLOSED, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO!?

POOLS ARE CLOSED, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO!?

What the state of affairs around the world here on March 19, 2020, everyone has been shaken up and schedule, routines and daily life has been flipped on it's head.  I know for me personally, all pools and gyms around me are closed, as they should be, and I am home...

TIP OF THE WEEK // Training AppsTechnology in the sport of triathlon has come a loooooooong way. Used to be paper and pencil, and not you just wake up and work out, right?But, now that we are here, which app is the best?1. Today, most are synced with giants like Garmin, so workouts can be structured and ran on your GPS watch, device or bike computer.2. Garmin has the market cornered for the most part for workout tracking. They are developing their workout plans more and more, but the true key is analyzation after the workout where Garmin is strong.3. Speaking of post workout, apps like TrainingPeaks are next level with review of post workouts stats and going steps further with their management charts and WK01 platform. But, keep in mind with the fancy side, trash in trash out. Your data needs to be clean for it to make sense and be effective.4. TriDot is gaining ground and recently released an update that gives your data a score relevant to the platform and how helpful it is in post workout review. They are also on the side of more AI based planning and as opposed to a coach making your workouts, they have a library that's calculated based on your performance and assessments. But again garbage in, garbage out so be mindful.5. Final Surge is jumping into the game and catching up, but is distinctly behind in the game at the moment.6. There's also apps such as Today's Plan and a handful of other platforms to look out for.7. But, what about the bike? Now that smart trainers prevail, you would be remiss not utilizing apps like Zwift, Rouvy and Trainer Road. Structured workouts to run your trainer in the cold months, no better way to go. But, they lack the back end to really dig into the stats and look at your triathlon game as a whole. More complimentary.8. Aside from the various apps and what features they bring... cost is a growing factor. More features, more cost. But what's the saying, you get what you pay for?9. Not all apps are the same when it comes to phone support. Don't want to be tied to the web version, do some homework to see which have a robust phone app component.10. Not all apps are equal when it comes to IT tech support. If it's a one man band, you may be waiting for responses when the game is on the line.11. Not all apps play well with coaches. Apps like TrainingPeaks were built for coaches... while apps like TriDot HAVE coaching features, but more secondary.12. Sometimes if comes down to feel. If you spent any time in math classes, you may know the reference of the difference between TI and HP calculators. Built for the same purpose, but drastically different in end user interfaces, something like Microsoft and Apple. ... See MoreSee Less
