"IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU'RE AT, YOU'LL NEVER KNOW WHERE YOU NEED TO BE!" 

DO YOU WANT TO GET THE MOST ENJOYMENT OUT OF YOUR ENDURANCE SPORT? IF SO THEN READ ON!

As an amateur endurance athlete you attempt to put in as much training as possible whilst juggling work, family, study and other commitments that the professional athlete normally does not need to worry about.  Therefore the need for you to ensure you are getting the very best out of your limited time available to train is actually more demanding than the issues faced by most sports professionals, who often have such luxury's as the ability to take a few hours sleep after a heavy day time training session. 

So many endurance sport participants spend a huge amount of time training in the "grey zone" only to then expect their body to perform optimally during a time trial, race or Sportive event

Finding out on the day that you have not been training right is gut wrenching. Whilst miles out on the bike are important, its how those miles are used that can a make the difference between a finish inside the top 10 and a finish inside the bottom 10. Most importantly contrary to what the bling selling brain washers will have you believe, the latest most expensive wheels or pedals will not make you win if your whole event preparations have been all wrong.  

There are several components of endurance performance that come into play and getting the best out of these is especially difficult when you do not have access to an array of dedicated experts on hand to both advise and coach you. Depending on your chosen endurance discipline these could include:

  • Pedalling efficiency
  • Cardiovascular fitness
  • Muscular strength
  • Muscular endurance
  • Anaerobic endurance
  • Power to weight ratio
  • Blood lactate accumulation
  • Breathing technique
  • Running style/efficiency
  • Speed
  • Flexibility
  • Mobility
In addition to the above there are other significant factors which dictate your ability to perform on any chosen day:
  • Nutrition
  • Hydration
  • Fatigue/over training
  • Motivation
Each individual component is vital, but combined they make a grand contribution towards enabling you to get the best out of your chosen sport.

However your body is only as strong as its weakest link, and if you fall short in any single component, it will dictate your peak performance level and often your final finishing position.

In order to realise your true sporting potential,it is vital that all the pieces are knitted together as strongly as possible.  Competing at any sport is hard enough, even if its just against your own personal bests.
