June 2013


By Coach Lee Zohlman


Yes it's true. The majority of your swim, bike and run training should be hitting the lower aerobic energy system with a splattering of work done a bit below, at and just above threshold. But real gains and top end speed come from doing some really fast efforts and these are the workouts that are the most fun and make us feel alive. The Zenners I get reports back from state that they are really taxed when doing these but feel great after. They also go into there next races with new confidence at being able to close each leg with excellent speed. These two sessions are really ideal for the Sprint and Olympic Distance athlete. I remember sitting in my USAT Level 3 Coaching Class back in 2006 and breaking down the energy systems with the famous, Dr. Max Testa. One of the takeaways from that discussion was allowing a good amount of rest between sets to ensure the paces were hit and the workouts were of high quality.
Before hitting these sessions please make sure to warm up well for twenty to thirty minutes and then get a bit of specific stretching in. Have fun!
