How To Train Like A Pro With Claire Steels

Claire Steels Training Session heart rate data

Claire Steels is a professional duathlete and has a World Champion title to her name. She gives Sundried a snapshot of a training session along with all the stats and data so you can see what it's really like to train as a pro.

Training Session

2 x (10 x 10 seconds effort : 50 seconds recovery)

The majority of the training I have done on the bike is for TT (time trial) type efforts, however as I am looking to move into road racing I need to develop a bit more explosive power.

This sessions was aimed at developing such power and improving my sprint speed.

Short, sharp efforts with a longer recovery sounds okay, but by the end of the set the 50 seconds recovery feels far too short!

I did this session on the Wattbike and then uploaded the data to Strava.

The screenshots attached show my speed, heart rate and then the last shot shows speed, heart rate, power and cadence.

Speed, power and cadence are fairly consistent across all of the efforts, although they drop a little towards the end. Heart rate spikes for each of the efforts but also gradually increases across the whole session.

I find sessions like this challenging and frustrating but in a strange way it means I enjoy them more! Weird I know!
