Coaches on Couches Ep. 75 – Ironman Memphis 70.3 Course Rundown

Triathletes, this is the one you’ve all been waiting for. No better place to get your course recon than from a couple of shlubs that ride and run the course on the weekly. You can listen to the out of towners who used Google earth to spot some key landmarks, but GPS mapping software generally sucks at elevation and we know these routes like the back of our hands. And we have veiny hands.

So let’s break down the Ironman Memphis 70.3 course and prepare you mentally for what’s to come this October in the great city of Memphis, TN. Pandemic be damned!

Shout Outs
Everyone who has been training hard with no races

We know the IM bike and run course maps provided generally leave a lot to be desired…so, we went ahead and created much more racer friendly maps below.

Heads up – we’ve also got an Ironman Memphis 70.3 Training Group and we’ll be doing course previews IN PERSON. You can click here for more info on the group – there’s still time to join!

Coaches on Couches Ep. 74 – Why We Hate ERG Mode For Indoor Cycling

In this sprint episode we spark a revolt against the use of ERG mode when cycling indoors. If you don’t know what ERG mode is, this one may not be for you. But if you are a cyclist or triathlete and spend a reasonable amount of time riding on a smart trainer, we’re going to enlighten you and give you all the reasons we believe ERG mode is hindering the quality of your precious training time.

If you disagree, we want to know! Feel free to drop us a comment.

Coaches on Couches Ep. 73 – Sprint – The Keys to Properly Pacing A Max Mile Effort



With no races to be had right now, we have a lot of our runners and triathletes doing max mile assessments right now to gage progress in their training. In this sprint episode of Coaches on Couches we talk with our good buddy and coach Nick Dwyer on the keys to properly pacing a mile race. It’s not a sprint, that’s for sure. And we knock it all out in 15 minutes. So give it a listen and then go smash your fastest mile split ever. You can thank us for the PB later, and we ain’t talkin’ peanut butter.

Coaches on Couches Ep. 72 – Sprint – The Why’s and How’s of Sweat Rate Testing

So in this inaugural SPRINT episode, we talk about the importance and methods behind proper sweat rate testing for cyclists, runners, and triathletes. We just do it in less than 15 minutes.

Coaches on Couches Ep. 71 – How to Talk Like An Endurance Athlete

As long time cycling, running, and triathlon coaches, there are a lot of words and phrases we throw around on a day to day basis. “Going blocks” is a good example of a term that turns heads like a confused puppy. To be honest, we don’t even think about the misinterpretations or political correctness when we get into coach mode. But we do realize that a lot of the things we say may be confusing to people new to endurance sports. So today we are going to run through a number of words and phrases that are commonplace in the cycling and triathlon world.

This is also our first remote recording of the show! Stay tuned for more guests from their own couch!

Shout Outs: Everyone staying consistent during the COVID-19 pandemic. We also run through a number of athletes who are hitting all time best power and pace bests right now in their workouts.
