E59: Decoupling | CICO and NSNG | The Pledge to Take Back Our Sport
1 day ago
Two questions were posed this week to the guys. The first concerned the metric called "decoupling" in TrainingPeaks (along with the "Efficiency Factor") and how it is used in training. As with most questions, this resulted in John and Randy scurrying to learn all they could about the why's and how-to's around this, and they make an attempt at explaining it during this show. The second was more of a statement that actually took John aback a bit. It questioned why John did not challenge Randy more on the Calorie In-Calorie Out stance he takes, knowing that it doesn't work the same way for him. They also tacklt this one in the way only they can.
To close, PearlIzumi posted a pledge today in social media, asserting that we "take back our sport". John has spoken recently about how the trail runnning pack reminded him of what the triathlete pack was like when he started, and how some instances have made him feel ... unwelcome. This Pledge has the goal of reclaiming the sport (and it really pertains to ALL sports) away from the people who have taken in over; a reclaiming of what it was when you started. They share the pledge with you during the show, and both of them believe in its meaning 100%.
Please keep the testimonials coming in (send to firstname.lastname@example.org) for inclusion on the website (www.fatslowtriathlete.com). The show is trying to grow, and these help that a great deal!
This week's music is "Cut the Cord" by Shinedown and "All Night Long" by Buckcherry

A New Show for the Back of Pack Endurance Guys
No longer with Back of Pack Endurance, John joined forces with fellow Ironman Coach Randy Messman and started the branded FST shows a few months ago. More training focused than BOPE was, it still has the same conversational aspect and is an easy listen.
