As the year is rolling to a close like a snowball picking up speed we wanted to send out our last piece of news and info before the REAL silly season begins!
TRAINING HARD... EATING ENOUGH?
One of our chief concerns as athletes over the Festive period is making sure not to over-indulge, and in so doing, losing our power/weight edge that we’ve worked so hard to achieve over the start of summer. With many athletes using this time to increase mileage and Chronic Load in preparation for events coming up in the 2nd half of summer, the increase in calories is generally put to good use, but what about those of us that are wanting to shed a few extra kilos (in light of the power/weight dilemma) and so skimp on calories after a tough or long training session to get the desired affect….is that really the answer and are you going to see results? Eating too little or eating the wrong types of calories after a workout can be more of a worry during this holiday season. Read more in this interesting article from TrainingPeaks:

Take It to the Next Level
With the Vector 3 dual-sensing system, you get the valuable ability to see right and left leg power independently. Vector 3 measures total power, cadence and left/right balance as well as advanced cycling dynamics, which helps you tailor your training around your specific weaknesses and strengths to improve your form. It tracks seating/standing position to determine when and how long you were in each. So, you can gauge position effectiveness, power phase to show how you’re currently producing power in a pedal stroke and platform center offset to show where power is applied on the pedal so you can ensure proper cleat position. Each metric can be viewed on compatible Garmin Edge Cycling Computers and Garmin Connect Mobile app.
