Still diving into the TrainingPeaks numbers and how to use them in training. This week we look at Chronic Training Load (CTL), how it is calculated, and how to use them when setting up a training plan. Rob Bozovich sent us an interesting email concerning Di2 builds and how to save some money on them, which Randy is always happy to look into, and then we talk about a list of the top ten current live bands, just for something different.

This week's music comes to us from the parrothead himself, Mr. Jimmy Buffett, with "Breathe In Breathe Out Move On" (a lesson we could all use), and a little rocker from the master Joan Jett with her cover of Springsteen's "Light of Day"/

Make sure to visit www.konaswimbikerun and www.stpeterunningco.com if you are in the Tampa/St. Pete area and let them know you heard about them on the show!!

In the first full length episode on Podbean John and Randy discuss the changes made during the most recent duathlon John completed and how it effected the race outcome and they delve into the meaning of weight to kilograms and how that would aide in race day performance.
John has been trying Munk Pack and is quite liking it. 
The TrainingPeaks article can be found HERE and is well worth the time to read through it.

The guys get into a discussion about training with power and what normalized power, normalized pace, and using power on runs actually means. Some other topics covered are cryotherapy, moov's new monitor, IM Boulder, DZ Nutes and the use of chamois creams, and the normal hodgepodge of information you have grown to expect.

Our guest thi week was to be Andrew Weaver but we had some connection issues so we promise to bring him on as soon as we can.
