E59: Decoupling | CICO and NSNG | The Pledge to Take Back Our Sport
Jan 18th, 2017 by fatslowtriathleteshow
Two questions were posed this week to the guys. The first concerned the metric called "decoupling" in TrainingPeaks (along with the "Efficiency Factor") and how it is used in training. As with most questions, this resulted in John and Randy scurrying to learn all they could about the why's and how-to's around this, and they make an attempt at explaining it during this show. The second was more of a statement that actually took John aback a bit. It questioned why John did not challenge Randy more on the Calorie In-Calorie Out stance he takes, knowing that it doesn't work the same way for him. They also tacklt this one in the way only they can.
To close, PearlIzumi posted a pledge today in social media, asserting that we "take back our sport". John has spoken recently about how the trail runnning pack reminded him of what the triathlete pack was like when he started, and how some instances have made him feel ... unwelcome. This Pledge has the goal of reclaiming the sport (and it really pertains to ALL sports) away from the people who have taken in over; a reclaiming of what it was when you started. They share the pledge with you during the show, and both of them believe in its meaning 100%.
This week's music is "Cut the Cord" by Shinedown and "All Night Long" by Buckcherry
