Building aerobic endurance on the bike is one of the keys to unlocking faster IRONMAN performances.

While experts tell us to spend most of our time in Zone 2, there’s lots of room between a recovery pace and LT to spice up your workouts. 

Chris Carmichael offers 2 interval sessions for building aerobic endurance: Aerobic Tempo intervals and Sweet Spot Tempo intervals.  Perform them a couple days per week (indoors or out) to accumulate more time-at-intensity.


The off-season is critical for all triathlon disciplines, but especially for running.  It allows you to fully recover, build strength and enhance biomechanics.

Unfortunately many athletes don’t schedule a true off-season, for fear of losing fitness.
