Coaches on Couches Ep. 32 – Seth Rider – Elite ITU Triathlete

*We had a bit of an audio failure but we cleaned it up as best we could. But this was an awesome interview!

This week on the couch we’ve got local hometown hero and ITU elite triathlete Seth Rider coming in to chat with us.

We’ve watched in awe as Seth has gone from shaggy-headed junior to getting a hair cut and battling the best in the world while fighting for a spot on the US Olympic team. We’d like to think his success revolves around all the group rides and races we exerted “tough love” on him as a teenager. But we’ve come to terms with the fact that he’s just better than us and works harder than everyone else.

We talk about Seth’s journey so far and dive into the inner workings of the elite development pathway. You’ll also get a glance into a general training week for the 22 year old pro.

Our favorite part of the conversation was when Seth broke down some of the lesser known strategies involved in draft legal racing.

If you’re a fan of the sport of triathlon, you won’t want to miss this. So find your own couch and hunker down!

Coaches on Couches Ep. 30 Murray Scott the OG Triathlete

This week on the couch we have the one, the only, the OG triathlete himself, Murray Scott. We plan to relive what some call “the golden age of triathlon” vicariously through his racing war stories.

Over the years, Murray has raced more than any person we’ve ever met, and he is still racing like he’s getting paid to do it. When he’s not racing, he’s volunteering, and has consistently been one of the big advocates of endurance sports in our region. So we are going to dive into Murray’s triathlon past, present, and future to find out how he keeps the drive alive!
