E75: Functional Fitness vs. Crossfit | The Difference in Trails | Negativity vs. Reality | Guest Co-Host Meaghan Nana-Sinkam
Meaghan Nana-Sinkam joins John as a guest co-host this week to talk about functional fitness and how is it different or similar to Crossfit.
They also discuss the two races John has been in since the last show (Clermont Series 5K and the Picnic Island Adventure Run)
How the Shakeology shakes are working as far as energy and weight loss
A bit more about Infinitus. Are calling trails in Florida and trails in Vermont the same name making any sense. The fine line between negativity and reality.
Some discussion about the direction Meaghan has been going in her training, her accidental acquiring of a coach, and trying to PR a mile. Some noticing of the sentiment in the recreational runner community that there's more respect the longer you run and some disdain for short races. We both challenge that. Do people think that Usain Bolt is less deserving of respect than Meb? Or what he does is easier than what Meb does?

After a week off the guys are back with another information loaded episode, ranging from types of DNF's, the rules of weight loss during the off season, and some talk about running form.
This week's music is from Ellis Paul (The World Ain't Slowin' Down) and My Chemical Romance (Disenchanted). Hidden meaning? Who knows!!
Christmas is coming (Santa!!!) and after john regales you with his tale from a Twilight 5K and following Therapy, the guys go through some of their picks for "must reads" during the holdiay season. If you have more to add, please let them know. They are very open minded. John also talks some about Domino Foods and the movie "Race" currently on HBO.
The books discussed:
Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss, Without Limits by Chrissie Wellington, Triathlon 2.0 by Jim Vance, Beyond Training by Ben Greenfield, Run Walk Method by Jeff Galloway, Run Less Run Faster by Runners World, 80/20 Running by Matt Fitzgerald, and Endurance Sports Nutrition by Suzanne Eberle
In this week's music .... "Rev it Up and Go Go" by Jesse James Dupree and Dixie, Inc .... just for the KISS reference, and "Joes Garage" by Frank Zappa.
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??
Episode 48 find John and Randy discussing the new feature in TrainingPeaks to use TSS and CTL for training plans and events. Their clients will probably be seeing this in the near future. Discussions also went to our feeling on time limits, what coaching really is, more dental frustrations, and some Walking Dead talk.
