E51: TrainingPeaks Enhancements | Garmin Watches | Sports Medicine

November 23, 2016

Both John and Randy want to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of our listeners. As they approach a full year of shows, the support received from both people they know and from any they don't has been both eye opening and humbing. It is the goal of Fat Slow Triathlete to help people get started, get better, and acheive those BHAG's. The people behind FST hope that it has been successful.

This week, they explore once more the new enhancements to TrainingPeaks (workout builder), then answer a listener question about the real differences between these different Garmin watches, especially the 725XT, the 920XT, and the Fenix 3. John also gave in to his coach and training partner and sought help from a sports medicine doctor. He talks a bit about how that went and his impressions of it overall.

This week's music is from Adam Sandler ... of course ... in honor of Thanksgiving. "The Lonesome Kicker" for the football games we all enjoy SO much, and "Turkey Song" because, well, duh.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!!
