Coaches on Couches Ep. 50 – USAT National Championship Course Changes – When and What to Upgrade or When to Buy New

This episode is really three fold. First we briefly run through the changes and improvements to the 2019 USA Triathlon National Championship course in Cleveland, OH.

Secondly, we run through when and what to upgrade if you are looking for performance gains (faster splits, speeds, etc).

Lastly, we cover when it’s just a better idea to bite the bullet and look into getting a complete bike.

It’s a tricky topic that really revolves around what you are looking to achieve, your budget, and how hard you are jonesing for a new ride. We get it! We’re always looking for an excuse to add to the stable.

Coaches on Couches Ep. 49 – Benefits of a Coach to the “Non-Competitive” Athlete

 

This week, we discuss the benefits of having a coach to those who don’t consider themselves competitive in their sport.

We answer a listener question: “with little hope or desire to become a pro, what are the reasons to train with a coach?”

You may not think you’re (fill in the blank) enough to work with a coach. But the truth is, if you have a desire to improve in any aspect of health, wellness, or sport performance, a good coach is worth his or her weight in gold.

If you’ve ever considered hiring a coach but talked yourself out of it for whatever reason, you won’t want to miss this episode.

Coaches on Couches Ep. 48 – Is There a Downside to Racing Too Much?

We all LOVE to race. Some fast. Some long. But for the competitive minded person, racing is the reward! It’s why we continue to put in the work week after week. It’s why we get up early and train late into the day. It’s why we take a pass on some social outings and refrain from…ummmm…lots of things.

But, could there be a downside to racing too much? The answer is a resounding YES!

We know, say it ain’t so! Your whole foundation and identity as an athlete has just been shook to the core. But the fact is, there are a few pretty compelling arguments against racing too much. We see it every year as we put together yearly race calendars for our athletes. But we’ve got a few simple solutions so you can race faster when it counts, and gain a bit more balance to your active lifestyle (read stay married).

Coaches on Couches Ep. 46 – Gear Talk


Coach D and Coach B-Fun talk about a few products they are presently using or have used based on these criteria:
1. New Products – How it’s going so far
2. A product or two we can’t live without
3. A product or two we want to smash (these seem to be coming along more frequently)
We all love gadgets and gizmo’s so this one should be a good ole time.
