It's that time of year again ... the holidays. If you have early 2018 races on the schedule or trying to lose weight, this part of the year can be a trial, so teamE4E discusses some of the issues and ways to get around them. John has also started training with Team in Training again and rejoining a team dynamic is an eye opener after being solo for so long. Add to that the stress of life in general and how it has resulted in bad habits rearing its head again.
ON THIS WEEKS SHOW JOHN AND ROB DISCUSS THE IMPORTANCE OF MAINTAINING THE CLOSED GROUP ON FACEBOOK BEFORE GETTING INTO THE CONCEPT OF THE WEEK (THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RECOVERY (REST) AND ACTIVE RECOVERY).
OTHER TOPICS THIS WEEK INCLUDE A STUDY CONCERNING THE STAMINA OF WOMEN V. MEN, A SHORT HISTORY OF DIET TRENDS, AND A LOOK INTO TWO NEW (ISH) CONCEPTS IN DIETING (SUGAR BASED AND NUTRIGENOMICS).

THE CONCEPT OF THE WEEK IS "LADDERS" FROM AMY LOEWENTHAL
STARTING OFF THE SHOW WITH A CORRECTION FROM THE PREVIOUS EPISODE IS NEVER FUN, BUT WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES FROM TIME TO TIME.
AFTER RECOVERING FROM THAT THE DISCUSSION TURNS TO SOCIAL MEDIA AND PUTTING THOUGHTS AND IDEAS OUT FOR THE WORLD TO SEE AND COMMENT ON, THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING A CLOSED GROUP AND WORKING THROUGH INJURIES WHILE TRAINING.
REMEMBER TO GO TO SQUADLOCKER.COM AND SEARCH FOR THE ENDURANCE FOR EVERYONE STORE AND GET SOME GEAR. WEAR IT WITH PRIDE AND SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!
#TEAME4E CONCEPT OF THE WEEK IS "SWOLF"
TAKING A DIVE INTO THE SUBJECT OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE FIT AND HEALTHY, AND IF THE TWO TERMS ARE MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE. CAN YOU BE A FIT PERSON, ABLE TO PERFORM THE PHYSICAL TASK IN FRONT OF YOU, BUT STILL BE UNHEALTHY?
THIS LEADS TO A DISCUSSION ABOUT BODY WEIGHT IN OF ITSELF, AND WHETHER THERE IS AN "OPTIMAL WEIGHT" FOR PERFORMANCE IN CERTAIN RACES AND TRAINING. IF THERE IS ONE, HOW CAN YOU DETERMINE YOUR OWN IDEAL WEIGHT?
NOTE: IT WAS REALIZED AFTER THE SHOW POSTED THAT I WAS USING THE TERM "METABOLIC SYNDROM" WHEN I ACTUALLY MEANT "ADRENAL FATIGUE". TOTAL MY (JOHN) ERROR.
THE MAIN COMPONENTS OF LOWER BODY FAT PERCENTAGE
- BUILD MUSCLE
- HEART RATE
- THE MIND
Can you sense a theme in the title?
John and Rob discuss training in a fasted state, how that can help endurance, and some of the methods to use. They also delve a bit into Calorie Counting as it pertains to Weight Loss.

How many of these mistakes have we all made on race day, even though we know better, and how can you train for hills and mountains if you live in an area (like John does) with neither of them?
Tune in this week to find out to get our take on these issues, and probably some other random thoughts thrown in for good measure.
Randy is back and the show starts off with a discussion about his weight loss using a medication and delves into the importance of family support, veganism, ethical dilemmas, and some discussion about the racing for the rest of the year and next.
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.
