I just finished my first full IM and had such a great experience that I signed up for Lake Placid July 26th. As I'm reflecting on this past training cycle and planning for the upcoming build I stumbled upon the book "Power Speed Endurance" by Brian MacKenzie.
The opening line in the forward says that he is a "polarizing" figure and they reference SLOWTWITCH.COM. The basic premise of his book is instead of just building volume into intensity, then sharpening skill in the disciplines, to start with technique, then build intensity, which will lead to increased stamina.
Any thoughts from those that are familiar with this approach or some things I'd need to consider before altering the LSD program that worked well for me in my last IM??
What does "CrossFit Endurance" have to do with this?
Here's the simple truth. If you want to get better at SBR, you SBR consistently, most of the time steady, sometimes very hard. Eat right, get plenty of sleep and that's it.
If you want to get better at sprinting, box jumps, pull ups and picking up and putting down heavy things, you do that.
