00:0000:00

John is back with a solo show, and that normally means a short one, to try to get back on schedule. Not one to be able to talk for an hour, these are a collection of short "thoughts" on subjects ranging from:

  • Reintroducing to the audience
  • The Great Equalizer
  • It Takes More Than Fitness
  • Racing a Bird
  • Dressing Up For Training and Racing
  • Fixing Your Feet

Thoughts and comments are welcomed as long as they are constructive :-)

Weeeeee'reeeeeeee Baaaack

John is joined with Rob and Pete for a dual teamE4E and Fatman Chronicles Episode talking about the recent forays into trail and ultra racing by Pete and Rob, with the common denominator in both being Karen Clarke. Discussion about the races themselves, the culture, how we choose these distances, and what is the driver that moves us toward them.

teamE4E 163: FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN RACE RECAP with ROB and KAREN

00:0000:00

Because we could not wait until December 3rd for a race recap, especially Rob's first Ultra Run, he sat down with co-runner Karen Stone to provide us with a race recap and some insights along the trail. Sounded like it was a great experience, so let us know what you think and maybe next year we can get a bigger contingent up there representing teamE4E (or, if you're game, join John at The Endurance Society's Infinitus in June).

teamE4E 162: CHICAGO RECAP | HIATUS ANNOUNCEMENT

00:0000:00

This episode might be a surprise to some, especially those in the Facebook group. As we mentioned in the group, the show is going on a little hiatus until December 3rd. I have been doing this show in various versions non-stop for 4 years and it's time to take a break, recharge the creative juices, and come back stronger (we have actually started brainstorming on new show ideas). But that doesn't mean that if the move strikes either Rob or me we won't just record something and put it out. Because, you know, sometimes we just have to TALK.

In the meantime, Rob recorded a race recap from the Chicago Marathon which I am certain everyone wants to hear. Race Recaps tend to be well-received.

We will be back!

John and Rob

00:0000:00

Meghan has always been John's "go-to" person when dealing with motivation issues, and today's show is no different. Coach Meghan and Friend Meghan become one as they talk about;

  • the difference between lack of motivation and depression
  • how you should never mistake depression and lack of motivation for laziness
  • the "spiral" example (John Green)
  • the paralyzation of feeling Overwhelmed, and
  • the one thing about "pain"
  • Plus some thoughts on watching athletes you coach do well in their key races

00:0000:00

This is one of the shows where Rob and John went in with really no clear idea about what to talk about, yet still manage to fill a good 45:00 or so with tales from their recent training week, dealing with a foot issue, and how weight can just make training uncomfortable.

teamE4E 147: THE HEAT IS ON | IS TRAINING IN THE HEAT BAD FOR YOU? | TIPS FOR THE HEAT | ROB RANT

This week the guys tackle the issue of training in the heat. With the temperatures soaring all over, how do you get through training days when the gauge hit 90-100? And if it is that hot, is it good for you to train in it at all?

Science might surprise you ... 

Rob then goes over some tips to handle the heat beyond the normal "drink more water" mantra, then both Rob and John talk about taking what you find on the Google Machine, especially things that magically appear at the top of search inquiries, with a grain of salt.

Be intelligent consumers, everyone ...
