My Coach (Kaustubh Radkar) has planned for a 3 days Triathlon Camp in Goa. It was from 8th March to 10th March.
Most of the participants were preparing for Ironman 70.3 Goa. Kaustubh and Indrajeet were our coaches for the camp.
In my last article on podcast, I shared my top 5 fav podcasts, I introduced podcasts and shared my top 5 favorite podcasts.
Continuing on the theme, I want to share few of my Triathlon focussed podcasts. While there are tons of Triathlon specific podcasts, some of them really resonates with my training philosophy. Here are few of them:
In the first part, we discussed the importance of Aerobic Base Building.
In this part, we focus on the “how-to” aspect of it.
MAF stands for Maximum Aerobic Function. This method deals with building aerobic base. This is applicable to all sports >5min in duration. This is one of the most powerful way to train.
Dr Phil Maffetone pioneered this method. Many top athletes, in a variety of sports, have followed this method to achieve top success.
According to Triathlete magazine, Mark Allen is the greatest triathlete ever. He won six Ironman World-Championships.
His secret? Maffetone Method.
