Lucho and Tawnee team up to answer your questions on:
-How do you go about determining “race pace.” Specifically for a marathon and a BQ, but also for triathlon and in general.
-When trying to stay around goal watts on bike, what’s your opinion on what to do when you get in a pack legally and power drops along with heart rate drops but speed is the same? Do you go around and keep power up or sit in and get some recovery?
-How do you know if you held back too much in a triathlon and could have gone harder?
-Is there a point in trying to set up the road bike for triathlons with aero bars (and if so how), or just keep the road setup?
-Training on your road bike vs. tri bike, and how that can affect triathlon racing.
-High cadence or low cadence on the bike. What is best for an Olympic triathlon, etc?
-How you can apply MAF principles to bike training especially hen there are hills and decents that affect HR
-How to use Jack Daniels 5-10km training plan for bike training
-Didn’t make BQ — should you jump into another marathon a couple weeks later to try again?
