Episode 24 - Sports Drink | Weight Loss | Lake Tahoe

May 25, 2016

We received listener questions on weight loss from Carolyn Miller, and have a few opinions on the bottom dwellers calling themselves triathletes who disparage racers that have shortened events. But the most important thing is Randy's homemade fuel!

Episode 23 - Caffeine | Red Bull | Gear Ratio

May 17, 2016

More important information this week from the brilliant minds at Fat Slow Triathlete. Listener Carolyn Miller asks about the use of Red Bull and Caffeine, and we are more than happy to help her out. Additionally, Super Fan Meaghan Nana-Sinkam sent us some articles just as John was answering the same questions at his job, basically how can a marathon runner have heart issues and does being thin equal being healthy (hint: it doesn't).

In the coming weeks, months, years, John and Randy will bring on the athletes they coach to discuss their training plans, issues, successes, and challenges.

But not before John shares his bike fit story from earlier today and why you need to be careful about the shops and people working on your bikes.
