The Training Formula

I’ve been at this endurance sports thing (1 hour or longer events) for a few years now and next year feels like it will be my senior year in the my endurance training education. Through those years I have definitely seen some grade A performances but there have been some F’s and everything in between. Reflecting back, I think I have finally come close to defining the training formula, that allows work/life balance along with injury prevention. The tips in this post come out of all of my collected mental notes from the past few years. This guide is not a one size fits all, but a blue print I have found that works and that you can tailor for yourself.

Garmin 910 XT Watch Review

“The 910XT sports a slim profile and comfortable wristband. Easy-to-read display with customizable fields — show 1-4 data points per screen on up to four pages. The new Virtual Racer™ feature lets you race your previous bests or an activity from another user and accounts for varying speeds and real-time conditions. Or try the Virtual Partner® feature to see how you measure up to a static pace. The auto multisport feature lets you switch sport modes with a button press, so you don’t lose precious seconds in transition. Automatically transfers a completed activity to your Mac® or PC when in range. Analyze your workout later at Garmin Connect™. For those who want to take their bike training to the next level, the 910XT is compatible with ANT+™ power meters, like Vector™, Garmin’s pedal-based
power meter.”
