E54: Visualization | Garmin Chronos | Smart Trainers

December 13, 2016

Getting ready for the holidays and the guys are a bit all over the place this week, but still some good information on whether or not to buy a Garmin Chronos if you have the Fenix, the capabilities of a smart trainer like Kickr or TACX, and most importantly, how the Walking Dead turned out.

Music? Yeah we got some music! Solsbury Hill and The Middle ... just because John likes those songs.

E52: Space Coast Half Marathon | No Race Weight Loss | Books and Films

Happy Anniversary!! The Fat Slow Triathlete Show is now 1 year old and we are still going strong. This week we talk about John making it through the Space Coast Half Marathon after visiting both a sports medicine doctor and a physical therapist. It wasn't pretty but he finished the race, and 2:00 faster than last year, so we call that in FST World a "win".

Some discussion about losing weight and why it is easier to do it if training less than you would for a race. 

John is also reading a book that may be of interest to you athletes trying to find the mental strength to get through these events (The Tao of Running by Gary Dudney) and he watched two great, and scary, documentaries on the Barkley Marathon and Patriots Day, about the Boston Marathon bombing.

This week's music is "Easy Street" by the Collapsable Hearts Band (TWD fans will know it well) and "Rock and Roll" by who else??
