As a researcher I am always looking to fill the gap. Which made me think about the eloquent way in which a friend of mine put the secrets of training:
“Base building, that’s the key. I’m an expert at various specific training types: the interval in interval training, the taper in tapering down and the loading in carb loading… it’s just the actual cycling that I’ve never quite nailed!”
Of course filling these gaps is the secret to success, maybe.
