Everything you need to know about run energy systems

Aerobic, Anerobic... adenosine diphosphate phosphocreatin or ATP-PC.

These are greek and latin words. They are also all different energy systems that we use in endurance sports (and life).

I’ve been in the endurance sport game for 25 years now and it wasn’t until the last few years that I started to get a better understanding of energy systems.

In this episode we’ll explain (in simple metaphors and analogies) exactly what they are, when they are used and how you can use them to train and race your best.

Listen on to find out more on this episode of trees and dlake.
