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 :-)

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

We are ending the month experiments early due to audience feedback, but to end the triathlon subject the show covers both cycling, brick training, and running. A three for one deal!

The show starts off with a review of the recent audience survey posted to the facebook group with the guys offering their perspectives on what they agreed with, and what they did not agree with, and how the show will be affected by the great input received.

teamE4E 148: TRAINING TALES | FOOT ISSUES | BEING UNCOMFORTABLE

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

00:0000:00

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 ...

teamE4E 135: IDENTITY CRISIS | CHANGING GOALS | LET IT GO

00:0000:00

As it does to most of us at some point, Rob is having a bit of an identity crisis this year. As lives change, training changes, due to demands on time by work, life, family, so how do you change with it and still maintain the identity you have clung to for so many years? Sometimes it's just a matter of letting things go and realizing that you are not a Triathlete, or a Runner, or anything of the sort; you are an Endurance Athlete at your heart.

June 2, 2018  

teamE4E 134: JOHN SPRINT | COACHING PHILOSOPHIES

00:0000:00

Every coach has a guiding set of principles and beliefs that they have developed through training, both their own and the "book learnin'" received as part of the certification process. But when what is taught in a class clashes with what experience has taught, what do you do?

June 1, 2018
