Wednesday Windtrainer Workout: Gareth’s 30min Lockdown Power Workout II

I needed to develop a short, intense session for an athlete due to the position they have found themselves in due to changes in COVID-19 restrictions where they live. This session targets a range of intensities in a limited time frame. This session is great to build your top end intensity but also your ability to turn on the intensity with limited recovery and is great for both road cyclists and triathletes, as well as mountain biking.

Friday Fartlek Run: Gale Bernhardt’s Half Ironman Run Intervals #3

Spending time training at appropriate intensities is important for developing your ability to ride at different paces or intensities in an event. For a half-Ironman event you will spend most of the event riding then running at Level III (about 77-90% Functional Threshold Power). Even though this workout is designed for a half-Ironman athlete, runners especially those doing a marathon or longer can also benefit from it.
