Happy Anniversary!! The Fat Slow Triathlete Show is now 1 year old and we are still going strong. This week we talk about John making it through the Space Coast Half Marathon after visiting both a sports medicine doctor and a physical therapist. It wasn't pretty but he finished the race, and 2:00 faster than last year, so we call that in FST World a "win".
Some discussion about losing weight and why it is easier to do it if training less than you would for a race.
John is also reading a book that may be of interest to you athletes trying to find the mental strength to get through these events (The Tao of Running by Gary Dudney) and he watched two great, and scary, documentaries on the Barkley Marathon and Patriots Day, about the Boston Marathon bombing.
This week's music is "Easy Street" by the Collapsable Hearts Band (TWD fans will know it well) and "Rock and Roll" by who else??

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.
