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!

July 22, 2017
00:0000:00

The Back of Pack URL is set to expire so I want to take the time to post a few episodes from that era that was both fun and useful. This is Episode 53 and was a chant between Andrew and me with John Bingham, aka The Penguin. Very insightful talk and fun to listen to this again.

E80: Race Day Nutrition Mistakes | Hill Training in a Flat Area | Does Coaching Make a Difference?

July 20, 2017
00:0000:00

How many of these mistakes have we all made on race day, even though we know better, and how can you train for hills and mountains if you live in an area (like John does) with neither of them?

Tune in this week to find out to get our take on these issues, and probably some other random thoughts thrown in for good measure.

E79: Life Happens | Coaching Choices | Coffee

July 13, 2017
00:0000:00

Meghan Fanning joins John this week to discuss the issue with life changes and how that affects training and weight. From relationships starting or ending, babies arriving, weddings, children starting school (or not being in school, life can throw quite a few monkey wrenches into a well thought out training plan or weight loss goal. How do you navigate the course?

E78: Cycling 101 | Choices | Cost | Fits | Rules of the Road

July 6, 2017
00:0000:00

Yes, it is true! The whole episode this week is on cycling. We have been getting requests to go to square one on some of the disciplines we cover on this show (swimming, cycling, running, trail running, etc.) so this week we will be talking about cycling and how, as a beginner, you navigate the oftentimes confusing world of something as simple as riding a bike. 

Topics will be:

  1. Choosing the right bike type
  2. Calculating how much to spend
  3. The bike fit
  4. Gears, Suspensions, Handlebars, and Brakes
  5. Taking the Test Ride
  6. Steps for Beginners on the Road or Trail

We are hoping that this is a useful show for everyone, even those that have been cycling quite awhile. We can't wait for the cards and letters from the few that might disagree with some points or views we have, but that's how we learn right!?

E75: Functional Fitness vs. Crossfit | The Difference in Trails | Negativity vs. Reality | Guest Co-Host Meaghan Nana-Sinkam

June 13, 2017
00:0000:00

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?

E73: Weight Loss Supplements | Phentermine | When Diet and Exercise is not Enough | Effect on Endurance Training

May 17, 2017
00:0000:00

Phentermine was in the news a few years ago but is still being used by doctors to help patients get a handle on weight loss issues when diet and exercise have not proved to be enough. Randy is currently on this medication and he will share his thoughts, how it is affecting him, and any concerns he had going into the program. More discussion on weight loss help in the form of supplementation, meal replacement, or surgery, ensues after that with the underlying question of "when does it become time to seek medical intervention?". What role does it play while training for endurance events?

E71: Mental Sabotage | God Pills | Exercise in a Pill

May 3, 2017
00:0000:00

The Endurance for Everyone Tribe have been talking about this subject on and off for quite a while, so it is about time the show addressed it. 

Have you sabotaged your training and racing by your own actions, or thoughts?

I think most of us have at some point.

So, let's talk about it a little tonight ...

  • PLACING STRICT EXPECTATIONS ON YOUR PERFORMANCE
  • LEAVING SELF-CONFIDENCE TO CHANCE
  • WORRYING TOO MUCH ABOUT RESULTS OR OUTCOMES
  • MISINTERPRETING PRE-RACE JITTERS
  • WORRYING TOO MUCH ABOUT WHAT OTHERS THINK
  • STRIVING TO PERFORM PERFECTLY

Special Thanks to TrainingPeaks for the inspiration...

E70: New Ironman Rules | Race Motivation | Critical Swim Speed (CSS)

April 19, 2017
00:0000:00

Ironman has relaxed a few and tightened a few rules up, so before the season get's into full swing the boys will review them for you, so you are aware, and can't blame them. :-)

Do you need a race in front of you to get motivated to train? John does. 

Critical Swim Speed (CSS) is a great tool for training in the pool, but how do you find it and how do you use it?

E69: The PHIT Act | Pre-Race Fueling for Nervous Stomachs | Protein & Blisters

April 12, 2017
00:0000:00

John tried hard for a while but has to say something SLIGHTLY political this week, and no it's nothing you'll get angry about. The PHIT Act was reintroduced to congress in March and it is something as athletes everyone should be on board with. Write/Call your congressman and get this passed.

Talk about pre-race fueling and some methods to try out if you're someone that deals with a nervous stomach in the morning or pre-race. If this is an issue for you, what do you do?

The E4E Facebook group got into a few discussions this week; around Protein needs and about blister prevention. 

We still have a LONG way to go to meet the 50 shirt minimum at the Booster page, so get your request in and let's see if we can get to the point we need to get to and get these shirts out on the street. Go HERE.

E66: Chris Valenti | Andrew Weaver | Back of Pack Endurance

March 26, 2017
00:0000:00

Since John and Randy could not get their schedules in synch this week (John's fault this time) we dug deep into the archives of IM YEAR ONE/BACK OF PACK ENDURANCE and found a great episode with Chris Valenti that still seems relevant today. The Fat Slow Triathlete and Endurance for Everyone tribe is still relatively new, so hopefully this will not only be interesting to you all, but also shows how far we have come in this podcasting thing (especially John).

The music this week is some serious 80's hair metal with Kix singing "Cold Blood" moving up a couple of decades for P!nk and her "Trouble"

Randy is back this week and joins John to talk about the importance of sleep, how it can affect your weight loss and training, and ways to fix and adapt to a natural circadian rhythm. The ongoing drama of John vs. Feet is also discussed, and is becoming quite the issue as the 100 mile run gets closer and closer.

This week's music is from the band Of Monsters and Men ("Little Talks") and Nelson with "Love and Affection".

E63: Guest Co-Host Dave Baldwin | Finding Your Way Home | Whispering Pines Report

March 1, 2017
00:0000:00

With Randy still adjusting to life with a new baby, friend of the show Dave BAldwin joins John as a guest co-host to discuss his recent year long journey away from fitness and back again, along with his move back to Clearwater, Florida from the icy tundra of New England. John is very glad to have him back in the area, and the show becomes a great conversation about losing your way, and the help needed from friends, this show, and the Facebook groups to find your way home.

This weeks music, to welcome Dave back to the fun & sun, comes from the Zac Brown Band ("Toes") and Zebra's "Wait Until the Summer's Gone"
