We are ending the month experiments early due to audience feedback, but to end the triathlon subject the show covers both cycling, brick training, and running. A three for one deal!
The show starts off with a review of the recent audience survey posted to the facebook group with the guys offering their perspectives on what they agreed with, and what they did not agree with, and how the show will be affected by the great input received.

Continuing TRI SEPTEMBER this week as Brian joins Rob IN THE STUDIO (a first for this show) to talk about swimming, and specifically swimming for a triathlon.
September 6, 2018
As promised, Rob got Vanessa Snyder back on the line to finish out the episode she started in 155. Thi is more geared toward her Lake Placid Ironman Race and how she prepared. Loads of good information once more.
September 3, 2018
Group member and Coach Vanessa Snyder kicks off TRI SEPTEMBER, sitting down and talking to long-time friend Rob about her past athletic endeavors and her transition to triathlon.
As a forewarning, this was/is meant to be a two-parter so it ends kind of abruptly. Hopefully, we can corral VS and get the remainder of the show completed at some point.

Well, that was a fun month exploring the sport of ultrarunning with Karen Clarke, Meaghan Collins Fanning, Chris Valenti, and Sean Meehan. Lots of valuable lessons from all of them. John and Rob try to encapsulate what we heard over the course of the four episodes, but to get a more in-depth listen, make sure to check out the full episodes.
On to Tri September!!

Old home month continues with another visit from one of our ultra-runners, closing out ULTRA AUGUST in style. Sean Meehan sits down with Rob to talk about the subjects we brought up with the last three guests and to get his take on those subjects. Sean is a coach working with Meghan Collins Fanning at ZenduranceNow and is an accomplished ultra-runner in his own right.
August 20, 2018
Not many people are as badass as Chris Valenti, so he joins us in our ULTRA AUGUST shows to talk about his history in the sport, from humble beginnings to running across three states, and dealing with that moment when you have to decide enough is enough, to the reason why racing ultra is like spreading peanut butter on Wonder Bread.
August 16, 2018
Karen joins the three-timer club, this time as the second guest for ULTRA AUGUST. Her unique perspective on this sport and her first-hand knowledge on dealing with roadblocks in your life will help even the most experienced athlete and shows us how to remember what is important.
August 13, 2018
Longtime fan and contributor to what we are doing here at teamE4E, Meghan joins us once more as our first guest in ULTRA AUGUST to talk about her history in this sport, the Infinitus race, and why she loves Fritos!

Rob took some time out and recorded a short introduction to the plans for ULTRA AUGUST and what we are looking at doing in the next few months. An Information-based quickie that is sure to delight and entertain you.
August 6, 2018

This is one of the shows where Rob and John went in with really no clear idea about what to talk about, yet still manage to fill a good 45:00 or so with tales from their recent training week, dealing with a foot issue, and how weight can just make training uncomfortable.
July 23, 2018
This week the guys tackle the issue of training in the heat. With the temperatures soaring all over, how do you get through training days when the gauge hit 90-100? And if it is that hot, is it good for you to train in it at all?
Science might surprise you ...
Rob then goes over some tips to handle the heat beyond the normal "drink more water" mantra, then both Rob and John talk about taking what you find on the Google Machine, especially things that magically appear at the top of search inquiries, with a grain of salt.
Be intelligent consumers, everyone ...
July 17, 2018
Annnnnddddd ....just as we were going to hit record john lost power and left Rob to fend for himself. But he's up to the task (and John snuck a message in just before posting ... ya know ... so ya won't miss him).
July 2, 2018
Down the long and winding road the guys go this week, delving into the ever-present issue of gaining, keeping, and losing motivation, and how accountability (or lack thereof). Then Rob follows up on his recent Facebook group posting about his shoes and when it is time to replace them.
June 25, 2018
The guys are back this week with Rob joining the show from the Finger Lakes, relaxing by an outdoor firepit, surrounded by S'mores and Ninja's.
Topics this week include:
- The Dam Tri Race Recap
- Bad case of the "Eff Its" and is it related to a paring down of the race schedule in 2018
- What measurements like TSS, CTL, ATL, and TSB mean in TrainingPeaks and how to use them
- Fire On The Mountain 50K ... the first official teamE4E group race?

Rob gives us a couple of sprints today centered around his race this week.
First up; what's in his Sprint Bag?
June 20, 2018
Can you tell what the show is about this week?
Prompted by a listener question, the guys delve into the world of stretching and get into the different types, if they really dp prevent injury, and can it increase performance.
This is a touchy topic with people, John and Rob come at the subject from both a personal view AND from a science-based view.
June 18, 2018
Rob goes solo on a longer sprint episode, recapping the last few shows and giving some clarity to what he was thinking in Episode 135 ("Identity Crisis"). He then ties it to some goals he "inadvertently" met and how he may need to redefine them, as the victories were not what he thought they would be.

Rob is away on a fishing trip with his family in the wilds of Canada, so Karen Clarke sits in with John to discuss the joys of Ultrarunning. Karen has been at it a few years and John is still relatively new, so with questions being raised by listeners they look at what exactly an Ultramarathon is, how to get started, how to train for one, and what to expect when you are out there in the wilderness with just a Gamin and Camelback to get you home.

June 4, 2018
As it does to most of us at some point, Rob is having a bit of an identity crisis this year. As lives change, training changes, due to demands on time by work, life, family, so how do you change with it and still maintain the identity you have clung to for so many years? Sometimes it's just a matter of letting things go and realizing that you are not a Triathlete, or a Runner, or anything of the sort; you are an Endurance Athlete at your heart.
