teamE4E 171: ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS | ROOT CAUSES | KAREN AND ROB TALK BIKES BIKES BIKES (PART 1)

February 18, 2019
00:0000:00

Joh talks about the importance of knowing the root reason why you do the things you do and the reason you should be honest about why you want the things you say you want. The Rob and Karen Stone talk about riding bikes for a reason other than competition and planning for a ride vs a competition. 

The show kind of ends abruptly because there will be a PART 2 to Rob and Karen's discussion on the next show.

teamE4E 170: DON’T DREAM IT BE IT | THE BOZOVICH FILES | PETE D’AMICO

February 2, 2019
00:0000:00

A lot coming at you in this show. John starts off with his usual deep dive into his psyche, which is fun for all I am sure, but then Rob comes back for two portions. He gives us a rundown of where he is right now and what he has been up to, then he is joined by good friend of the show Pete D'Amico from the Fatman Chronicles podcast to talk about Pete's training for his FIRST marathon (that Rob will be doing with him). 

As usual, please join us on the Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram (search for @teamE4E) and make sure to check out Pete and his wife Gretchen over at Fatman Chronicles (on podbean as well).

teamE4E 169: WHAT DO YOU WANT? | 8020 RULE | EXERCISING THE 5 BY 5 AT HOME

January 22, 2019
00:0000:00

Episode 169 starts out a bit philosophical with an actual bible verse (wait ... what??) but it does lead to something, a discussion about what the 80/20 rule is in business and how it applies to training, and then a short talk on using a 5x5 method with body weight and how to determine how much "weight" you are actually lifting in a push-up and air squat.

Big difference between a 2-hour show and this one, but the points get across I think ;-)

teamE4E 167: ATTACK OF THE RESOLUTIONISTS | FACING FEAR | SPARTAN VIRTUES

December 31, 2018
00:0000:00

Happy New Year to the teamE4E family and listeners. We couldn't let the fact that New Year's fell on podcasts day stop the show, so here is one to get the year started right.

  • Your familiar and safe gym has been overrun with the "Resolutionsists", so how do you deal with it?
  • Facing a new year with new challenges ahead.
  • Spartan Virtues and how they relate to life, business, and training.

I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable 2019!!

  • Joining US Masters Swimming

December 16, 2018
00:0000:00

John is back with a solo show, and that normally means a short one, to try to get back on schedule. Not one to be able to talk for an hour, these are a collection of short "thoughts" on subjects ranging from:

  • Reintroducing to the audience
  • The Great Equalizer
  • It Takes More Than Fitness
  • Racing a Bird
  • Dressing Up For Training and Racing
  • Fixing Your Feet

Thoughts and comments are welcomed as long as they are constructive :-)

 

teamE4E 162: CHICAGO RECAP | HIATUS ANNOUNCEMENT

October 15, 2018
00:0000:00

This episode might be a surprise to some, especially those in the Facebook group. As we mentioned in the group, the show is going on a little hiatus until December 3rd. I have been doing this show in various versions non-stop for 4 years and it's time to take a break, recharge the creative juices, and come back stronger (we have actually started brainstorming on new show ideas). But that doesn't mean that if the move strikes either Rob or me we won't just record something and put it out. Because, you know, sometimes we just have to TALK.

In the meantime, Rob recorded a race recap from the Chicago Marathon which I am certain everyone wants to hear. Race Recaps tend to be well-received.

We will be back!

John and Rob

  • the difference between lack of motivation and depression
  • how you should never mistake depression and lack of motivation for laziness

September 24, 2018
00:0000:00

The guys are joined this week by the "illustrative" Serena Scott Thomas to talk about her journey from a "non-sporty" type in her youth, to modeling, acting, James Bond, and to Chi Running. If that wasn't enough, she deals with Vinnie Tortorich on a daily basis and is the producer of the upcoming documentary "FAT".

teamE4E 158: SURVEY RESULTS | TRIATHLON CYCLING | TO BRICK OR NOT TO BRICK | TRI RUNNING

September 17, 2018
00:0000:00

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.

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.

teamE4E 154: ULTRA AUGUST WRAP UP with JOHN and ROB

August 27, 2018
00:0000:00

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!!

teamE4E 153: ULTRA AUGUST with SEAN MEEHAN

August 23, 2018
00:0000:00

teamE4E 148: TRAINING TALES | FOOT ISSUES | BEING UNCOMFORTABLE

July 30, 2018
00:0000:00

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.

 

 

teamE4E 147: THE HEAT IS ON | IS TRAINING IN THE HEAT BAD FOR YOU? | TIPS FOR THE HEAT | ROB RANT

July 23, 2018
00:0000:00

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 ... 

teamE4E 146: POWER LOSS LEAVES JOHN OUT

July 17, 2018

teamE4E 135: IDENTITY CRISIS | CHANGING GOALS | LET IT GO

June 4, 2018
00:0000:00

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.

teamE4E 134: JOHN SPRINT | COACHING PHILOSOPHIES

June 2, 2018
00:0000:00

Every coach has a guiding set of principles and beliefs that they have developed through training, both their own and the "book learnin'" received as part of the certification process. But when what is taught in a class clashes with what experience has taught, what do you do?

00:0000:00

A discussion about Zone 2 training and dietbet is also in the show, and a random "The Office" memory near the end.

Now ... GO TRAIN!!!

00:0000:00

teamE4E 125: FAT DOCUMENTARY DISCUSSION WITH VINNIE TORTORICH

May 14, 2018
00:0000:00

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. we had a slight snafu where after the show John lost the file by hitting the wrong button, and the back up on Rob's end only has me and Vinnie. So, when listening you may notice Vinnie or me responding to something where Rob would have been talking. I listened through and the overall gist of the show is still intact so, we apologize, but the show is still worth a listen.

Make sure to show your support for the film by going to Vinnie's INDIEGOGO page or directly to fatdocumentary.com

teamE4E 119: BEING BRAVE | THREE BRAINS | ALTER EGO | RACING ON WEED |

April 23, 2018
00:0000:00

You have three brains; your ancient Chimp brain (keeps you alive), your modern Professor brain (navigates the civilized world), and your Computer brain (accesses memories and runs your habits, both good and bad. They fight for control all the time; you get crazy nervous before a race, you choke under pressure, you quit when the going gets tough, you make dumb mistakes, you worry about how you look. Feeling unworthy of being called an athlete (runner, triathlete, cyclist) is referred to as cognitive distortion, but can also work both ways. Being overconfident can be as damaging as being under confident. How does each happen? 

Drawing from the book "The Brave Athlete" by Dr. Simon Marshall and Lesley Paterson (https://www.velopress.com/books/the-brave-athlete/), a book recently recommended to John by Beth Shaw after reading of his ongoing anxiety about the open water swim, the guys talk about these and some of the points made in the book. 

Well, at least the first 1/3 of the book.
