Paceline Podcast 146

It’s reader questions once again this week. Selene was asked how to structure a training plan so that a racer can maintain a high level of fitness year around, especially if there are six “A” events spaced throughout the season. Most training plans start from zero, and honestly, how many of us are starting from zero?

Another reader says his wife is an injured runner and he’s trying to get her into cycling. He put her on an old mountain bike with road tires, but she hasn’t really been bitten by the bug just yet, and he can’t figure out why. Patrick takes a look at ways that someone might approach introducing a runner to cycling so that they get why we find it so fun.


This will make more sense once you’ve heard the episode.
