How do you balance efficiency and stroke rate, and which is more important to key on in training to improve performance?
What things do you traditionally do during the tapering process that you feel give you the best chance at achieving your goals? So any special sets or gimmicks that work for you.
Do you use pulse rates in day-to-day training, and if you do what kind of parameters govern how you use them?

When doing high-end speed or velocity training, what should the work-to-rest ratio be? By high-end velocity I mean max cycle rate combined with max distance per cycle using your race technique.
How do you recognize over training or overreaching in day-to-day training and so avoid digging yourself into a hole you can’t come back from?
