    Do You Have to Do Your Race Distance in Training?

    Join Peter and Molly as they discuss the common question of how much you need to train to be ready for an endurance race. Do you need to complete the race distance or duration, or both! Or can you get by with shorter rides, that might allow more frequency or quality training?

    Can You Train for Cycling Outside?

    Can You Train for Cycling Outside?

    This week, we discuss a common question Peter often receives, that might surprise you! Although cycling typically takes place outdoors, many athletes now start to train for cycling while indoors on smart trainers. Some even begin cycling indoors before considering taking their cycling outdoors for training and competition. This shift outdoors can lead to challenges when transitioning into a more variable enviroment. Join us as we explore how cyclists maintain structured training  for cycling outdoors while still enjoying the simple pleasure of riding a bike!

Good people, good show

Enjoy listening to this show so much. The dynamic between Peter and Molly is hilarious. Besides the fact that it is often crack-the-F-up funny, they give relatable and… almost empathetic advice on training (???) They surely have high performing athletes that they advise and coach, but they also provide really wonderful content for those middling-age Dads with kids, jobs, marriages (etc). They respect the time limits and constraints and I really find it inspiring/motivating. When I’m really not in the mood to go for a run or a ride, I’ll often just give an old episode a listen and it helps a lot.

Anyway, yeah that’s about it. Great podcast and best of luck, Molly, with the new pup!

Do the reggae one! ,

Informative, relatable and inspiring.

Informative and relatable, in a way that always sparks inspiration. You never feel like you’ve missed the boat w training or messed up somehow. It always shows you a path to success regardless of where you’re at.

Trob77150211 ,

Informative and easy to listen to

The podcast with Dr Stacy Sims was quite timely for me as I struggle for the first time with my body not responding to workouts and nutrition like it used to. I’m not quite ready to use the P or M word yet, but I am ready to incorporate new habits. Thanks for continuing to make health and nutrition easy to understand and entertaining to listen to. Super appreciate the focus on women’s health too!
