June 20, 2017
00:0000:00

Meaghan Nana-Sinkam is back filling in again while Randy and his family are in Mexico.

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"

March 15, 2017
00:0000:00

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 the classic "Me and Julio" by Paul Simon and ends with "I'm Alive" by Mr. Aday (Meatloaf).

E64: Trail Running Chronicles | Managing Doubt | Little Talks

March 10, 2017
00:0000:00

John goes it alone this week and attempts to make it a listenable experience by going through his recent training plans, issues he is having with recurring pain in the ankles and feet, and in line with the way he writes in his blog, comes clean with some of the doubts creeping into his psyche and how he is tring to deal with it but having little talks with himself at night.

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"

 

E62: The Openness of the Groups | Running Heavy | 100 Miles

February 15, 2017
00:0000:00

A number of great posts and emails have been received recently that have let Randy and John know that what they set out to do, the core meaning of the group, has started to manifest in listeners and readers. It was both eye opening and relative. The show is, at it's base level, about anf for you, so we are glad it comes across.

We get into the meat of a few posts from Brent and Tyler, and some follow-up responses from listener Roxanne. Keep those posts and emails coming!

This is CLASSIC ROCK week with tunes from Nazareth (Hair of the Dog) and Ted Nugent (Good Friends and a Bottle of Wine) 

E61: Listener Questions | Working Through Pain | Handling Life While Training

February 8, 2017
00:0000:00

The show received some interesting question this week and John and Randy try to give the best answers they can, so keep them coming. Discussion around nutritional needs for short workouts, dealing with pain, trail running needs vs. road running, and everythign in between. Had a little recording issue on one side with reverb which I cleared as much as I could. It still seems listenable. Hopefully it comes through OK.

This week the music is a bit different ... both from the same band, The Donna's. "Who Invited You" followed by "Dancing With Myself"

E60: DNF Types | Weight Loss Rules | Running Form

February 1, 2017
00:0000:00

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!!

E59: Decoupling | CICO and NSNG | The Pledge to Take Back Our Sport

January 18, 2017
00:0000:00

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%.

Please keep the testimonials coming in (send to john@fatslowtriathlete.com) for inclusion on the website (www.fatslowtriathlete.com). The show is trying to grow, and these help that a great deal! 

This week's music is "Cut the Cord" by Shinedown and "All Night Long" by Buckcherry

E58: The Tabitha Hill Request Hour | Croom Zoom | Importance of Recovery

January 11, 2017
00:0000:00

John returns from his first journey into the trail running world with tales of amazement ... this is a MUST listen (or you can read about it in the blog HERE). Then Super Fan Tabitha Hill took the time to send us a list of questions on recovery, choosing a race, and what to eat after a race that they guys are more than willing to give their opinions on. Technical difficulties aside (near the end) it is a great episode for the whole family.

And let us know what you think about the new OUTTRO (yes, that means you have to listen all the way through!)

December 21, 2016

  • Running
  • Cycling
  • Swimming
  • Overall (if you could ony do ONE exercise, what would it be?)

Millinocket Half and Full Marathon; December 6, 2017 in Millinocket, ME. Entry is FREE with the understanding that you stay in the town and boost the local economy. Looking to put a FST contingent smack dab in the middle of this thing.

Some pointed music this week with Royal Blood's "Figure It Out" and The White Stripes with "Cause and Effect"

E54: Visualization | Garmin Chronos | Smart Trainers

December 13, 2016
00:0000:00

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.

E53: Christmas Reading List | Domino Foods | The Road to No

December 7, 2016
00:0000:00

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.
