Webinar: Power-Based Workouts For Early-Season Races
Topic: Power-Based Workouts For Early-Season Races
In this webinar Gordo Byrn will share race-specific sessions to prepare for early season events.
Topics covered will include: • Terrain-specific preparation; • Benchmarking sessions to calculate optimal race pacing; • Workouts to set power and heart rate ceilings; • Applying swim/run sessions around key bike workouts; and • The difference between early-, and late-, season specific preparation.
Gordo Byrn’s athletic accomplishments are listed below but are secondary to what makes he feels makes him an effective coach. He states that the most relevant part of his athletic background is his journey from an obese “finance guy” to an elite athlete, starting from scratch in the mid-90s and turning his life around.
Gordo’s athletic career started when he decided to go for a walk in 1993. That walk led him to his first season of triathlon (1999) and, eventually, to elite athletics (2001). Since turning 40 in 2008, Gordo has shifted athletic focus towards balancing time with his family and agegroup participation. To keep things fun, he has expanded beyond triathlon into ultradistance mountain biking.
