After what feels like an eternity, the first real races slowly reappear on the calendar. That in itself is motivation enough for me, so I’m not picky about the discipline.
After I tried out time trials two weeks ago, last weekend the national championship hill was on the agenda. It was a bike race on the road, held on a hilly circuit. I was sure it would be more my thing than time trials.
What does it take to win a virtual bike race in the 2nd Bundesliga Triathlon?
A short review of the Zwift race of the 1st and 2nd Bundesliga Triathlon last weekend and an analysis of the power data and strategy that (possibly) led to the day’s victory in the 2nd Bundesliga North.
Maybe you remember my article about alternative racing and challenges. A short time later, as luck would have it, the Zwift Tri Series was announced. A race series on Zwift, initiated by Tri Team Hamburg, which should bring us virtual racing fun as long as there is no Triathlon Bundesliga.
I had to be there, of course. Eight weeks, eight races, different distances, always full gas. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
And because everything went so well, the 1st and 2nd Triathlon Bundesliga will officially start next Sunday. With a bike race on Zwift and a livestream to watch!
After a longer interruption, whether a voluntary break or involuntary due to closed swimming pools, it is not easy to start again. The hard-earned fitness is almost gone and the feeling for water seems to have completely disappeared.
But that will change quickly and with the right training you will be back to your previous level in no time!
Here are our best tips and three training plans for the restart.
When we heard about the idea of the Personal Best Day, we knew we were in. And we’ re here to support you!
We have created a training plan to help you get in shape and be prepared for this day. In eight weeks you will be fit for the challenge. We offer one plan for 5km and one for 10km for free.
And even if you don’t want to race against yourself, you can improve your running performance with the training plan!
“I really need to be able to quantify the training dose more accurately than 2 x 20 minute intervals with FTP. I needed a score.” This is what Hunter Allen told Dr. Andrew Coggan and the result of his thoughts was the Training Stress Score (TSS).
We are pleased to be able to offer you performance analysis at the highest level.
With INSCYD we can examine your performance while cycling and running in detail and give deeper insight into your individual physiology.
With this knowledge we can give you clear recommendations for training and develop a suitable pacing and nutrition strategy.
You finally want to race, take part in a competition? When you train, you want to be able to show your performance at some point. After all, the goal is often what drives us in training. But if it is not possible to race or compete “normally”, it is no reason to lose all motivation. After all, there are alternatives. We suggest you our 4 favoured possibilities.
The training is carefully planned and focused on the event, you have trained diligently and are optimally prepared.
Often the question arises suddenly, how it is actually with the nutrition before and during the race.
Ideally, you have already worked out your nutritional strategy beforehand and tested it sufficiently during training. But sometimes you need a quick solution. No matter if you are planning your strategy for the coming season or if you need to find a short-term solution, here we summarize the most important things for you.
Cyclocross is becoming very popular (again). But what is so special about this sport? What does the perfect cyclocross training look like? And what more do you do than simply ride a bike? Here we give you a little insight into the special nature of this cycling discipline and show you how to train best for your start into the cross season.
