On this episode of Triathlon Training Explained, we’re looking at bike pacing for triathlon. Particularly, looking at non-drafting triathlon and time-trialling. In these disciplines, an evenly and well-paced bike leg is thought to have the best results. On race day, that’s easier said than done, even with the best intentions!
As triathletes we train hard, and then we rest up for race day so understandably, we have a lot of fire power on race day. This can lead to over-biking, starting out too hard and putting in unnecessary surges. But how much does this really cost us, if at all, compared to a evenly paced bike leg? We also look at what is actually happening to our body physiologically? And, how can we prevent it and plan our pacing?
In this video we:
- Investigate these pace changes over a 6km time trial
- Talk to a physiologist about how our efforts affect our body
- And discuss how to plan a bike leg with and expert in bike pacing
