RETHINK YOUR RUNNING
After 6 hours of swimming and biking, you’re fatigued and depleted. Now you must run a marathon. This is not your standard road race.
In this article Matt Dixon articulates what makes triathlon running so different and offers a proven approach that will unlock your running potential.
The limiting factor for most long distance triathletes is mechanical fatigue, not cardiovascular fitness. That’s why Dixon emphasizes strengthening the chassis and building muscular resilience.
Once the foundation has been fortified, you can design and execute a race day plan based on economy, consistent fueling and patience.
Applying these principles will help you solve the third and final piece of triathlon’s puzzle, allowing you to achieve the results you know are inside of you.
