-Aqua jogging for injury, maintaining fitness and general cross training

-Recommendation for a 12-week 10k program for an experienced runner.
-What are the pros and cons of a sleeveless wetsuit vs full sleeve? And thoughts on a two-piece.
-How to execute a great pre-race training trip on the course where you plan to race (i.e. Mont Tremblant for 70.3 Worlds)
-The “conflict” between what Dr. Phil says in his Big Book of Endurance Training about athletes often not needing more than 12 hours a week of endurance training — presumably at MAF — and the general agreement in the endurance community that if you don’t train intensely (above MAF), then you need to train long.
-Is there an advantage in training at least 50% at MAF and then doing threshold too?

-Training for endurance cycling event coming off injury (peroneal tendon and some achilles tendinitis) – MAF or intensity or both?

-and more!

    I’m pretty new to Endurance Planet but I love it! Trying to catch up on all the podcasts.

    Loved today’s especially the swim question. I have often asked my coach the great John Van Wisse ‘how can I get faster?’ His reply is always ‘swim faster’. Sounds so simple and it’s spot on. If I jump up to a faster lane at squad, I keep up, I have to – therefore I swim faster. And drills, drills drills! Thanks guys love your work.
