teamE4E 105: SUGAR | COURAGE TO STAND | TREADMILL | HASH HOUSE HARRIERS

January 15, 2018
00:0000:00

Welcome to 2018 and thank you for being a part of Endurance for Everyone and teamE4E!

 

Is sugar going the way of tobacco, and why do some insist on pushing sweeteners as a "healthy" alternative to sugar usage. After a short football geeking out John and Rob discuss why sugar seems to be an issue still with some people, not in its use but in its ability to turn some people into zealots. The bottom line is that your body is much like a computer; you put garbage in you are going to get garbage out. It all starts with food, and even if you are lucky enough to not show outward signs of damage, what you eat DOES affect you.

The discussion also starts with the use of treadmills, and indoor training in general and how it can both aid and hurt you when training for a race.  

A "Hash Race"? What is that??

teamE4E 103: THE BOZOVICH FILES with AMY WIERMAN

January 1, 2018
00:0000:00

Amy Weirman is a long-time member of the Facebook Group and we have all been following her swimming exploits from the beginning. Distance is not the only thing she does well, but we have watched in awe as she climbs into sub-50 degree water on a regular basis.  In today's episode, Rob sits down with Amy to discuss endurance swimming, how she got into it and some of the tips and techniques that she has figured out along the way.

teamE4E 102: THE BOZOVICH FILES with COACH SEAN MEEHAN of ZENDURANCENOW

December 25, 2017
00:0000:00

It's a Christmas Night Special from teamE4E

In this weeks episode, Rob sits down with Sean Meehan. Sean covered his search for fitness and weight loss post-military service. His journey takes him down an interesting path. Sean starts with some OCR and only makes things harder from there. In Sean’s quest to qualify for he starts running ultras which leads to him running an epic race on one of Pennsylvania’s toughest trails. True to trial culture the Laurel Highlands Ultra is a grueling 70.5 mile run with many ups and downs. Let’s listen to the epic tale.

 

 

teamE4E 101: THE WHY | THE COMPARISON TRAP | GUILTY PLEASURES

December 18, 2017
00:0000:00

We begin where it began, at the beginning, so the end is now a new beginning.

So let's begin ... 

We have grown quite a bit over the last 100 shows, and along the way, we have picked up new listeners and people who are just starting out on the endurance journey. We are going to spend this show talking about the start; how to come to grips with WHY you are doing this, what your purpose is, and how to seek out help when it is needed (and everyone needs help now and then). 

Have you fallen into the comparison trap? Social Comparison is a core element of human nature, so how do you accept it for yourself while still not allowing it to demotivate or hinder you? 

What are your guilty pleasures at Christmas? Hallmark channel? Die Hard? Or like John is it something from his childhood like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang??

teamE4E 100: MILESTONE | ANDREW WEAVER | MEAGHAN NANA SINKAM | RANDY MESSMAN | MEGHAN COLLINS FANNING

December 11, 2017
00:0000:00

When a milestone like 100 episodes is reached you have to do something different to mark the occasion. Even though this is a free podcast, we here at teamE4E take this very seriously and recognize the work of the people who help us behind the scenes (Brent Larimer, Roxanne Babbott, Megan Medina, etc.) as well as those that have been in the front lines as the show has evolved from IM YEAR ONE to BACK OF PACK ENDURANCE, to FAT SLOW TRIATHLETE, and finally to the podcast as it is now.

To mark this milestone episode we decided to have Rob interview some of the people who have contributed to the actual show in the past.

The first guest is Andrew Weaver who was the co-host of both IM YEAR ONE and BACK OF PACK ENDURANCE. Andrew was the guiding force behind those shows and without him, John would still be just writing a blog. So you can blame him for having John in your ear every week.

The second guest was John's initial thought for a co-host after Andrew left the show and it changed to FAT SLOW TRIATHLETE. Meaghan Nana Sinkam has been a listener since the beginning and has been on the show many times in all of its incarnations. She can always be counted on to ask the hard questions and to hold the mirror up to you and make you answer the things you may not want to answer.

The third, and most recent, is Mr. Randy Messman, the co-host for the first 80 or so episodes. Randy is an Ironman Certifed Coach and brought great insight and technical expertise to the show. John and Randy shared a similar background, both being veterans of the US NAVY, and both brought to the show honesty and transparency that continues today.

Finally, Meghan Collins Fanning has also been on the show many times and could be doing her own show if she wanted to do so. She was John's coach for almost 4 years, his guiding force when he moved from triathlon's to trail running, the bug in his ear when he doubted his own abilities, and the cheerleader when he wanted to attempt harder things. 

The first 100 has been a pleasure and an honor. There are big things in the works for the next year or so as Endurance for Everyone and teamE4E try to take some next steps. Thanks for being here to this point, and we hope you stick around for the ride.

teamE4E 99: THE MOST IMPORTANT MUSCLE | BODY WEIGHT EXERCISES | GOOD INTENTIONS STOLEN

December 4, 2017
00:0000:00

What is the most important muscle in the body? The answer might surprise you.

Bodyweight Exercises are strength training exercises that do not require free weights or machines as the individual's own weight provides resistance against gravity. It is recognized that bodyweight exercises can enhance a range of biomotor abilities including strength, power, endurance, speed, flexibility, coordination and balance. This type of strength training has grown in popularity for both recreational and professional athletes, with a range of sports disciplines using bodyweight resistance training as part of their fitness programs. Bodyweight training utilizes simple abilities such as pushing, pulling, squatting, bending, twisting and balancing.Movements such as the push-up, the pull-up, and the sit-up are some of the most common bodyweight exercises. Types are Push, Pull, and Core. (Wikipedia)

As our friend Vinnie Tortorich likes to say; your good intentions have been stolen. But what does that mean exactly, and where should you look for these "traps". We are here to try to help you with that this week, from the trapping of labels like "natural flavoring" and "organic" to the pitfall of artificial sweeteners.

teamE4E 98: THE ART OF SAYING NO | INTERMITTENT FASTING | TAPERING

November 29, 2017
00:0000:00

Saying No to something or someone is never easy, but the art of saying No is realizing you need o get rid of the static in your life in order to focus on the important things. That's what the guys are talking about tonight in episode 98.

Along with that, there is a discussion on intermittent fasting; what it is, how it works, and how to plan it out.

teamE4E 97: SURVIVING THE HOLIDAYS | TEAM DYNAMICS | CONFESSIONS

November 20, 2017
00:0000:00

It's that time of year again ... the holidays. If you have early 2018 races on the schedule or trying to lose weight, this part of the year can be a trial, so teamE4E discusses some of the issues and ways to get around them. John has also started training with Team in Training again and rejoining a team dynamic is an eye opener after being solo for so long. Add to that the stress of life in general and how it has resulted in bad habits rearing its head again.

teamE4E 96: THE BOZOVICH FILES with THE MARATHON TRAINING ACADEMY

November 17, 2017
00:0000:00

As an extra episode this week Rob ventures out on his own and has a chat with Trevor and Angie of the Marathon Training Academy about all things running. 

Check out their site at http:marathontrainingacademy.com and let them know you heard them on Endurance for Everyone!

teamE4E 95: RECAPTURING THE PAST | COMBATING SICKNESS | SPIN BIKE FOR TRAINING

November 16, 2017
00:0000:00

Better late than never.

Recorded a little later this week than we normally do, and probably contributed to the discussion about music and recapturing the past that starts out the show. But never fear, we get back in line talking about getting sick due to training and ways to avoid it, and then end up talking about using spin classes as replacements for cycling workouts and what to do, and not to do, in order to get the most out of it.

teamE4E 94: TRAINING WHILE SICK| S.M.A.R.T. GOALS | OFF SEASONS

November 6, 2017
00:0000:00

If you are sick should you take some time off, or use the downtime in a more constructive manner? That's what kicks off the show this week. That topic dovetails into a continuation of the discussion about Goal Setting and using the S.M.A.R.T. method in planning. And what do you do in the off-season (unless you are like John and really have no "off-season")?

teamE4E 93: FINDING PASSION | IDENTIFYING YOUR ENDGAME | STRIDES | STAGES OF PAIN

October 30, 2017
00:0000:00

This one is a bit heavier on the mental side, but we can all handle that right? 

Finding your true passion can be harder than it sounds on the surface, and connecting that to what you see as your true "endgame" can be harder. What does "passion" mean, outside of your family (which we assume everyone has a passion for)? Something you cannot live without? Something that without it makes you feel ... incomplete? And what about your endgame? Is it to be healthy, or to win an event outright, or maybe just prove to yourself that you can do something that you never thought you could do?

The concept of the week is "strides". In a run workout, what exactly are they, how are they performed, and most importantly, WHY are they needed?

teamE4E 89: RUN/WALK METHOD | ZONE 2 TRAINING | 80/20 RULE

October 3, 2017
00:0000:00

THE GROUP WAS ASKED WHAT THE CONCEPT OF THE WEEK SHOULD BE TONIGHT, AND AS MUCH AS WE WANTED TO DELVE INTO THE SHAVING CONCEPT (YOU KNOW IT'LL BE COMING THOUGH), KAREN CLARKE POSED THE CONCEPT OF RUN/WALK METHOD, AND SINCE IT DOVETAILED INTO THE PLAN TALKING POINTS THIS WEEK WE WENT WITH THAT ONE.

RUN/WALK METHOD

  • Continuous use of a muscle will result in quicker fatigue
  • The longer the run segment, the more fatigue
  • Run Walk Run is a form of interval training
  • Conservation of resources
  • Quicker recovery
  • Less stress on the “weak links”
  • Reduce core body temperature

ZONE 2 TRAINING

USING THE 80/20 RULE

September 21, 2017
00:0000:00

THE CONCEPT OF THE WEEK IS "LADDERS" FROM AMY LOEWENTHAL

teamE4E 86: FIT AND UNHEALTHY | OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE WEIGHT | BODY FAT PERCENTAGES

September 14, 2017
00:0000:00

#TEAME4E CONCEPT OF THE WEEK IS "SWOLF"

TAKING A DIVE INTO THE SUBJECT OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE FIT AND HEALTHY, AND IF THE TWO TERMS ARE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE. CAN YOU BE A FIT PERSON, ABLE TO PERFORM THE PHYSICAL TASK IN FRONT OF YOU, BUT STILL BE UNHEALTHY?

THIS LEADS TO A DISCUSSION ABOUT BODY WEIGHT IN OF ITSELF, AND WHETHER THERE IS AN "OPTIMAL WEIGHT" FOR PERFORMANCE IN CERTAIN RACES AND TRAINING. IF THERE IS ONE, HOW CAN YOU DETERMINE YOUR OWN IDEAL WEIGHT?

NOTE: IT WAS REALIZED AFTER THE SHOW POSTED THAT I WAS USING THE TERM "METABOLIC SYNDROM" WHEN I ACTUALLY MEANT "ADRENAL FATIGUE". TOTAL MY (JOHN) ERROR.

THE MAIN COMPONENTS OF LOWER BODY FAT PERCENTAGE

  1. BUILD MUSCLE
  2. NUTRITION
  3. HEART RATE
  4. SLEEP
  5. THE MIND

Bonus Episode: Ironman Year One Episode 6 with Anna Vocino and Body Image

August 9, 2017
00:0000:00

Another scheduling issue this week results in Andrew Weaver coming through for me and providing Episode 6 of the Ironman Year One show we did WAAAAY back in November of 2013 with Anna Vocino. 

Wow ... I have been doing this a LONG time

This is a GREAT episode, was a lot of fun to do (even though my mic at that time was cheap and buggy). We talk a lot about body image and shaming, and a bit about the book she was writing at that time which is now out ("Eat Happy").

Enjoy the walk down memory lane, and don't hold me to anything. It was 4 years ago!
