Welcome to another installment of our podcast BETWEEN THRESHOLDSIn this program, in which I, together with José Manuel Plaza, talk to you about training and technology news.
Fourth episode of our podcast. This week we answer the question of one of our listeners who likes to suffer... sorry, who participates in middle-distance competitions (800m, 1,500m). José Manuel gives a good overview of the tips you should follow if you like to participate in this type of competitions.
Please note, it will not only be useful for those of you who compete. Dear competitors... open your ears wide because these are the distances that you will usually find in the physical tests.
There are two books recommended by José Manuel Plaza. Here they are:
– Manual for Endurance Sports Training - Jonathan Esteve, Roberto Cejuela, Claudia Cardona.
– Functional Training Applied to Sports - Michael Boyle
He also recommends the My Jump 2 application so that you can calculate your strength and speed curve and know which aspect you need to improve and work on.
In the technology section I tell you about the new update for COROS watches that I have been testing this week, and that will be available to users over the next week. Possibility to create structured workouts for running, cycling and swimming.
But also an option to create strength workouts with a very cool reporting feature that allows you to see your training with a lot of perspective.
You can see all the details of this COROS update by clicking here..
And of course not 1TP11We could not forget the news of the week, the mess that has mounted Strava after announcing that its main functions (segment leaderboards and route creation) become exclusive to paid users. We discuss it and leave you our opinion.

Thank you very much for taking into account our requests (more specifically mine in particular), and even more for your very fast response.
Very interesting what is exposed in the program, I take note and I will put it into practice. We'll see how it goes with this way of training.
Thank you very much again.
P.S.: You comment in the program that they are agonic tests, try to do a 1500 and then tell me what is worse, a few minutes of suffering or the hours of agony of a marathon. I have done some half marathons (never more distance) and I have it clear, ji, ji.
You are welcome Miguel.
I'm telling you, don't count on me to do 1,500 competitions... I've done a mile and they are the most agonizing (and slowest) minutes of my life 🙂
