Episode 005 Tri Talking with TriStacey

If you enjoy the podcast and want to help support it financially, you can do so through my GoFundMe account.  The money will be used for equipment and web hosting fees.  I will give you a shout out in a future episode.

I talk with triathlon coach Stacey Richardson of TriStacey about the USA Triathlon Art and Science of Triathlon conference in Atlanta in October 2016.

We discuss some of the sessions Stacey attend with Stacey sharing her thoughts and impressions.  She gushes over the presenters and presentations.  If you know one of the folks listed below, give him/her a heads up about the podcast; it will be a good ego boost!

We discuss:

  • Allen Lim, PhD talking about nutrition and how he challenged Stacey's paradigm (buzz word alert) about eating during ultra-endurance events.
  • Carwyn Sharp, PhD from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) talks (with his Aussie accent) about weight training not making you big (tune in to see what he says makes you big), about bridging the gap with resistance training and about sport being about force/power production.  However, he really teased the audience as he did not go into how one integrates resistance training with the primary sport especially one like triathlon that already is time intensive.
  • Jesse Kropelnicki (whose name we probably butchered) talked about data for athlete improvement but also emphasized the need to remember the athlete is a person and not just a data provider.  He talked about his cornerstones of training.
  • Dave Schell of TrainingPeaks talks about data management.
  • Finally we talk about Barb Lindquist who talks about swimming and how to treat swim training.

We had a bit of a technical glitch so if you hear a skip or break, it is just me trying to stitch together the pieces we recorded.  Gotta love technology!  It works fine when I am watching puppy videos.
