Whilst there are some events that are performed in the lower exercise intensity ranges and therefore rely on endurance, in the main, race performances take place at intensities where there is a challenge on the ability to hold a 'steady state'.

Sessions that work on your sustainable power are therefore critical as part of the build towards the race season. Training in this exercise intensity range (i.e. upper zone 3 and zone 4) helps the body to build the machinery it needs to work at high rates of energy turnover without fatiguing. Essentially, we build tolerance to fatigue in these zones.
