Q&A #122 - Metrics to track (and not to track) for beginners, intermediate and advanced athletes; The Power Duration Curve and WKO
  • What metrics should triathletes of different levels (and different levels of training/coaching and technical literacy) be tracking?
  • The danger of trying to track too many metrics, and tracking irrelevant metrics
  • What is the Power Duration Curve, who would benefit from using it, and how? 
  • Is it worth it to buy WKO for training analysis purposes for self-coached athletes?

Greg Bennett
Ed Baker - Champion Ironman athlete - Investor, Entrepreneur, and Growth Specialist - Facebook/ Uber
In this episode of The Greg Bennett Show, Greg has a wonderful conversation with one of the brilliant minds of the 21st century. A key figure in developing growth with some of the world's leading tech companies. Ed is also an extraordinary athlete, winning his first Ironman after only 6 months of being in the sport of Triathlon.   Father of four. Harvard Grad, MBA at Stanford Business school, Investor, Entrepreneur, and Growth Specialist. Previously Vice President of Growth at Uber and Head of International Growth at Facebook. He speaks Mandarin and Japanese. And just recently at the youthful age of 39, he found Ironman. And he’s not just good at his new chosen sport, he’s exceptional.   At his first Ironman at 2018 Lake Placid he won overall in 9hr 18, only a few months after he started the sport, and qualified for Kona IM World Championships in the process… a month after that breakthrough at Lake Placid he then went and raced the Copenhagen IM and was first age grouper in 8.27 and finished 10th overall including the professionals.   On top of all of that, he’s a great guy, incredibly down-to-earth, and simply a genuine person.   In this episode, Ed describes his journey into endurance sport and how running in high school enabled him to find confidence and belief in himself in a time when many of us are struggling with insecurities and are finding ourselves. He discusses his time running at Harvard and post University and then his void of physical activity for 10 years as he was consumed by work building his own company's Datesite.com, Friend.ly, and then eventually at Facebook and Uber.   He describes the cultures of Facebook and Uber and his relationship with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.   Ed shares how he decides to invest and become an advisor in various companies. We discuss growth and how Ed has used both science and art to grow all these companies.   A lot to learn from this one, from one of the great minds in investing and entrepreneurship.   Discount Codes and Deals   Athletic Greens - a FREE year supply of Vitamin D AND 5 FREE travel packs with your first purchase by visiting athleticgreens.com/greg Hyperice - get an additional 10% off with code GREG10 at hyperice.com FormSwim Goggles - formswim.com/greg for $15 off - The coupon will be automatically added to the cart.

152: How to Effectively Modify Your Training and Racing as You Age, with Rebecca Rusch
They say age is just a number. That’s exactly it: Age is nothing more than digits, and certainly shouldn’t be seen as a barrier or a dirty word. We can age successfully, but it requires changes to how we train and perhaps to the types of races we target.   Of course, there are some physiological changes—you might call them declines—that come with age. Yet, there are also things that improve as athletes get older. Sometimes they are truly physiological and psychological adaptations, and at other times they are a matter of perspective, mentality, or choice.  We begin the episode with a deep dive by Trevor into some recent research on the effects of age and performance. Then we jump into a great conversation with the timeless Rebecca Rusch, a seven-time world champion, mountain bike Hall of Famer, and ever-evolving, age-defying cyclist and adventurer. As we speak, the 52-year-old Rusch is taking on her third Iditarod Trail Invitational in Alaska.  In that conversation, we touch upon everything from training changes to nutrition tips, from off-the-bike work to the work it takes inside the mind to stay motivated, energized, and ready to push.  We also hear from Dr. Andy Pruitt, the world-renowned sports medicine consultant, and Colby Pearce, coach, athlete, bike fitter, and host of the Cycling in Alignment podcast.  All that and much more, today on Fast Talk.

Artificial Intelligence and how it will revolutionise coaching * Simon Ward and Prof Paul Laursen
This week one of our most frequent guests, ’The Prof’ Paul Laursen, is back. Why has he been on so often? Because he always offers so much value to any conversation and this one is no different. Today we chat about artificial intelligence (A.I.) and The Prof’s new project Athletica.ai. Like it or not, the machines are coming and AI is here to stay. It’s been around for many years in other spheres but now coaching apps and platforms are starting to make progress with it, and your life will be a lot easier when the app you use can effectively ‘crunch’ all of the data from your gadgets and wearables. So, will this make coaches redundant? Definitely not! Machines will never be able to replace the empathy that good coaches have with their clients. Having said that, the future will be different and we need to embrace this opportunity. We get into the weeds chatting about a couple of issues around COVID. In the conversation Paul explains all of this as we chat about: * What exactly is artificial intelligence? * How AI benefits athletes and coaches * Machine learning vs pattern recognition * How Athletica.ai works * The irony that the most important elements to Athletica are NOT data driven * Intelligence vs wisdom and why coaches with wisdom are irreplaceable * Returning to training after COVID and why it’s no different to recovering from the flu * Nutrients and Vitamin D - The Profs two BIG ways to protect your immune system The prof has reduced his social media footprint in recent years but you can still find him on these channels Athletica website Twitter - @PaulBLaursen, @Athletica_AI We also mentioned these topics in the podcast.

#44: Lessons From 60+ Years of Running with Walter Liniger
Walter Liniger, 69 years young is a strong runner from Switzerland. He ran his first race at age 7, his marathon PR was set at 2:38 in 1988 in Basel. For many years he trained mostly at a high intensity, often out of the door and … full throttle. In his late sixties he wanted to find a different approach to training and racing. He discovered the approach of MAF training. His goals changed now not to chase the fastest times but to finish a race in healthy conditions and enjoying the journey. About a year and a half ago Walter joined the Marathon PR Program to get practical information, advice and guidance with a holistic approach to training and racing. It has been exciting to follow Walter's running journey on his Strava. He is a big inspiration to me and many others in our program. Recently he ran his first Ultra of 100km at the age of 68. We discuss his running journey and things he has learned along the way. If you’d like to find out more about our running coaching programs, check extramilest.com/training.
