BIKE GO BOOM
Why do the wheels come off for so many triathletes at about 120 km (or 75 mi) into the bike leg?
As is often the case, it boils down to the wrong training. Most triathletes perform at least one long, endurance ride each week. But steady-state efforts are not enough, since they only activate 20-30% of your muscle fibers.
So, if that’s how you’ve trained, then – at about 120 km – expect to fatigue, lose efficiency and slow down… drastically.
We can prevent this by reformatting our long rides. Even better, it doesn’t require more time in the saddle.
Learn 2 great methods for activating more muscle fibers on the bike to sustain performance for the entire 112 miles. After putting them into practice, you’ll soon be finishing your triathlons stronger than ever.
