As a newer triathlete without a coach this podcast is really informative and insightful. Quite a wide range of guests with different experiences that offer information I wouldn’t have otherwise thought of. With that being said, there are quite a lot of pauses in the interview that don’t really flow into the following questions or natural cadence of a conversational interview.
Amazing podcast for triathletes out anyone interested in running, cycling or swimming
Amazing podcast for triathletes out anyone interested in running, cycling or swimming. I don't have a coach, so this podcasts has provided all the info I need on training, nutrition, technique for each discipline, rest and strength training
Great podcast. “Regular” people interviews are what I like the most.
I am a beginning triathlete in Michigan. I started because my wife, a seasoned triathlete, decided to go for a half Ironman. She needed a training partner for the long bike rides... so..... I bought a $150 road bike off a neighbor. Giant ACR, stuck aero bars on it and away we went. I am a seasoned runner typically running 2-3 destination half marathons so training was nothing new. When she went to the pool I decided I might as well go too. Well that lead to signing up for my first Triathlon in mid July. I am happy to say I completed the race and won my age group (40-44). Smaller race but a confidence booster to say the least. Swimming open water is nerve wrecking for a first timer and the few OWSs we did helped but just getting through the race did it. I am hooked. We are now signed up for a couple more (sprint distance).
Been listening for about 2 months. I have learned a ton. I have sampled other podcasts on this subject and find this one to be the best. The nutrition based information has proved to be so insightful. Out of my learning through this podcast, I have lost over 8 lbs in about 2 months by reducing carbs. In effect I was over eating carbs. Now I carb load prior to long workouts while minimizing carbs otherwise. Feel tons better all around and the results speak for themselves. I am 3 years into tris and lots to learn yet this podcast has really accelerated that curve. Thank You!
I'm still in the honeymoon phase with triathalon, and every episode of this podcast has me pumped up. I'm binge listening... great guests, anecdotes, book recommendations, training tips. Thanks for putting this out there!
Found these by accident as I was looking for something to listen to accompany me on my long runs. I love the diversity of the people Eric interviews and his humble approach to these conversations. I learn so much from each podcast and the kilometres just peel away as it feels like I am running with friends. So much fun to hear people from all over burning with the same motivations and love for the sport, looking forward to my next long run...

Absolute a must listen for every level of triathlete. Great info using a wide variety of guests who give their take on triathlon training. Love the professional and age group interviews as well as the interviews with the top researchers in the field. Thank you Eric, hope all is well and keep up the quality work. I’m going through all the podcasts again and giving them all a second listen.
