Today's Guest needs little introduction. He is a former professional cyclist, Co-Founder of legendary training platform Training Peaks, and the son of the author of several endurance training bibles, Joe Friel. That is right, Dirk Friel joins us today on the Athlinks Podcast. We had a great chat about training slower to get faster. The importance of recovery days. and he will school you on the importance of the 80/20 rule. We reminisce about his youth spent as an American in Europe as a pro cyclist and how he and fellow racer and previous guest of this podcast, Anton Villatoro were bamboozled by Guatemalan race officials who deliberately directed them into a wrong turn, costing the American's the race. Dirk is a great guy - fantastic coach and entrepreneur and I think you'll love hearing what he has to say about the world of training, racing, and living an active life.
