Coaches on Couches Ep. 60 – The Magic of Layering for Cold Weather Training

It’s that time of the year. Long sleeves, short sleeves, no sleeves. Shorts, tights, thermals. Thick gloves, or just the liners. If I overdo it I’ll be soaking wet. If I under do it I’ll freeze, or at best be the person with the bloody nipple kit.

Fear not, we’re here to walk you through the magic of layering…yes, via some simple layering techniques you too can survive almost any training and racing conditions Mother Nature can conjure up.

So grab your balaclava, find your quiet spot, and join us for another episode of Coaches on Couches.

Coaches on Couches Ep. 59 – From Dirt to Ironman with Bobby Weakley

Fire fighter, soon to be father, master movie quoter. We’re going to talk about Bobby’ Weakley’s transition…ummm…from mountain bike specialist to ironman finisher. And yes, we start off with WHY. Then the HOW. It wasn’t an easy road to travel. Ridicule from his co-workers and mountain bike buddies. Learning to swim as an adult. Running on road when there’s a perfectly good trail nearby. Tough stuff. But ultimately it culminated to a great performance at Ironman Chattanooga in 2019.

Bobby gives a lot of insight into how he made the jump from a single sport athlete to a multisport monster. If you listen for no other reason it would be to see how many movie quotes Bobby and Coach Dale can throw into one episode. If you watch the Youtube version, we’ve got a running movie quote counter going.

Coaches on Couches Ep. 57 – Making the Most of Your Off Season

Since so many people are closing out their seasons (while others continue to race anything they can find) we are going to talk about the importance of the off season. First we will define what an off season actually is, then we’ll chat about what it should be geared toward, and why what you do in the off season is what really moves the performance needle for the following year.

If you are a fall and winter hibernator, but have real goals for next year, you won’t want to miss this!

Coaches on Couches Ep. 56 – Dealing with Extreme Heat and Humidity

Since summer isn’t going out without a fight, we are going to drop our main tips and strategies for dealing with extreme heat and humidity. The topic has been swirling the web it seems, and we think we might know a thing or two about a thing or two on this one since we live and train in the armpit of the United States. That’s not a jab at Memphis. We love our hometown. It’s just hot AF here.

First we focus on our big 3 methods of preparing for a blazing inferno, and then we get on to actual racing and training strategies that can help while you are in the thick of it.

So if you are a cyclist, runner, or triathlete, and you want to perform well in the heat, you won’t want to miss this one!
