Anna Haslock: Dot Watching and the Trans Continental Race
This week it's all about ultra endurance cycling. Guest Anna Haslock is Race Director for the Trans Continental Race (TCR.) It's a self-supported bike race across Europe, approximately 4,000km. The race was originally set up in 2012 by Haslock's partner, the late Mike Hall, who was one of the best endurance cyclists on the planet. They ran the race together for three years, until Mike's tragic death during a self-supported race across Australia. Anna has continued to organise the race following Mike's death and in 2019 the TCR caught the headlines around the world when a young German female Doctor, Fiona Kolbinger, won the race outright. You'll hear: 06:50 What makes the Transcontinental race so special? 07:45 How Anna got involved - she admits she wasn't interested in bikes or cycling before she met Mike! 18:43 Anna explains the GC race is 15 days, but some people have taken over a month to complete the event 20:23 We find out what makes dot watching so gripping 24:05 How Anna goes about planning the route and the check points 30:20 Anna's favourite part of Europe 34:45 Striking the balance between racing and fatigue.

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 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 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.

Ep 254 - Laz Lake on Big's Backyard Ultra and virtual races
Laz is back and this time he's talking Big's Backyard and virtual races... something we didn't think we'd be speaking with Laz about a year ago! It's been a while since Jody and David spoke to Laz (aka Gary Cantrell) about the Barkley Marathons (if you've not listened, we suggest going back and listening to this first) and since then we'd had the National Running Show where Laz was star of the show and a global pandemic. As a result, Laz's usual roster of races hasn't gone ahead... but that has helped explode the popularity of the Big's Backyard race format and another huge virtual race run by Laz - The Great Virtual Race Across Tennessee. Jody and David discuss these with Laz. Laz also gives his view on the controversy surrounding the banning of BLM and political posts in the Facebook group. Oh, and a bit of a disclaimer - there was a bad lag which made it difficult for the conversation to flow as freely as intended. Enjoy!
