Clatters Chatter: Motivation

The importance of having a goal may seem irrelevant at first, but once you start to train you understand why. When I first started my training this year I didn’t have a goal and after the first few weeks of enjoying the progress, I started to loose focus and motivation towards my training.

Thursday Training Plan: Eat Well

For today only I’m doing my new Eat Well membership service at a super cheap price. You get the membership at the cheap price of only $20pa. This is saving you $77 and you still get:

This workout will develop your top end VO2 Max power. Enhancing your VO2 Max will pay dividends with your training by building your top end ability. This is a perfect workout for road cyclists, as well as Mountain Bikers and triathletes (particularly draft-legal triathletes).

Friday Fartlek Run: Clatter’s Speed Booster
In yesterday’s Clatter’s Chatter, Luke Clatworthy wrote about how he wants to work on his ability to hold a faster pace for longer & extra boost for the end of the race to overtake people at the finish. Although not designed for him, as I don’t have another suitable name for it I’m calling it Clatter’s Speed Booster. This session is perfect to develop these traits and great for runners and triathletes running events up to Half Marathon in distance.
