Are you frustrated with your lack of cycling progress? If so, then Chris Carmichael suspects you might be guilty of sabotaging your training by making one of these 4 mistakes.
Mistake #3 might sound familiar: neglecting training specificity. Too many triathletes simply ride to log their miles, rather than establishing an intentional goal for each session.
Of particular interest is mistake #4: not updating your training zones. After reading the first article in this edition of TriathlonWire (!), remember that your fitness is constantly changing, and your FTP can fluctuate by 15 to 20% each year. That means, to get the most from your training, your training zones must keep pace, too.
Evaluate whether you’re making any of these mistakes, and then make the necessary adjustments. As soon as you do, you’ll see your cycling performance improve.
