Recovery Runs Defined

February 10, 2018

If you have worked with a coach you may have seen the workout on your training plan that states “Recovery Run, Bike or Swim.” Many athletes seem to be very diligent about keeping their legs spinning and their watts or speed low when doing a recovery bike session or subsequently, with the swim, keeping the focus on drills and really easy swimming but when it comes to the Recovery Run, that can be a whole different story. 


Coach Doug MacLean's Preseason Tips

December 30, 2017

The most “WHAT DO I DO???” time of year is generally the winter.  The previous race season is ancient history, but the next “big” race may still be 6-7 months away.

During the winter, some folks never take a break, some folks take several months off, and some folks kind of do an “in-between”.  Based on my years of racing professionally, and coaching for QT2 Systems, I’ve learned a set of principles that I think are the best, and sharing them will hopefully simplify some of your “winter training decisions”.


Sick And Tired? Here's What To Do About Training.

December 20, 2017

As triathletes our approach to training can be detrimental to outcomes. We start a season with a goal, a training plan, and a drive to get’r done at all costs. We have set up a training season, with a goal time, and goal placement in mind. Our wiring at an early age is to ignore signals from the body and be tough in our athletic pursuits. You have workouts on the schedule, and need to check off those boxes. You need to show commitment at all costs to the “plan”. This mentality of checking off the boxes, ultimately leads to sub optimal performance on race day. Then the head scratching starts. Illness is an experience we all have in a season. How you deal with illness during training can be a variable that can make or break your race day performance.

Training Tactics For The Winter Months

November 20, 2017

Triathlon training through the colder months can be a challenge for those of us who live where it snows. And even if it doesn’t snow where you live, it’s darker and colder.  When you add to that the holidays that go along with a lot of those colder months, it can be a really difficult time to remain motivated to train.  But maintaining fitness is important for your training as well as your overall health, and there are certainly things you can do to keep going during the colder, darker months of the year.
