Webinar: Physiology & Strategies Of Pacing
Topic: Physiology & Strategies Of Pacing
Pacing Strategy is the single most important aspect of race day. Understanding the basic physiological variables and types of pacing is the key for a coach or athlete to develop the appropriate pacing and racing strategy for a race. This webinar will delve into negative, all-out, positive, even, parabolic-shaped and variable pacing strategies, what factors should be considered and how they apply to training and racing triathlons. It will also go into the physiological and biomechanical determinants for pacing and how they determine the regulation of pacing.
