The Tri Doc is a physician on a mission; to dispel all the false notions about injuries, training aids and pseudoscience that permeates the triathlon community. This podcast takes a fresh look at how to train and race for a triathlon while being smart about choices related to gear, nutrition and anything that goes in or on your body.
Episode 57: Post-Covid Syndrome/Jon Mason-Running with power
In this episode:
The pandemic continues to be a scourge around the globe but even for those who recover the virus often leaves significant disability for many, many months. I discuss what is known of the post-Covid syndrome and why athletes need to be especially wary of contracting this virus if they haven't already. Plus, I speak with Colorado State University Triathlon coach Jon Mason. Mason is an avid proponent of the Stryd running power meter and he explains how it works and why he thinks you should use it to train and race.

Episode 56: Athlete heart with Murray & Papadakis pt2/Hunter Allen
In part 2 of her interview with Dr. Michael Papadakis, Helen Murray of the Inside Tri Show explores the association between endurance sports and atrial fibrillation and gets some insight in to the risks for sudden cardiac death that while rare are obviously important! The doctor addresses the ideas behind screening and whether or not athletes should concern themselves with this risk to any great degree. Plus, I am joined by Hunter Allen, a giant in the world of endurance cycling when it comes to understanding power and how to best use it to inform your training and racing on the bike.

Episode 54: DVTs and training/Tim Crowley; The Powerful Triathlete
Deep vein thromboses are potentially dangerous clots in the large veins of the legs or pelvis that can break and travel to the lungs. Treatment is to take a blood thinner for at least three months. But is it safe to get back to training after this diagnosis is made? I review the evidence. Tim Crowley is a successful triathlon and strength and conditioning coach. He recently published his first book; The Powerful Triathlete and he joined me to talk about it.

Episode 53: Lumen/Mario Mejia
The Lumen advertises itself as a handheld device that is the first of its kind able to help users 'hack their metabolism'. What is it, how does it work and more importantly is it of any use to the endurance athlete? Also, Mario Mejia embodies the saying 'triathlon changed my life' in every possible way. From the depths of despair, he leveraged everything that multisport has to offer to turn his life around and become a role model to many and at the same time give back to as many more as he could. Hear his story as he prepares to tackle his first Ironman race in Cozumel.

Episode 52: Vitamin D/Brodie Sharpe on running injuries and rehab and orthotics
In winter when daylight hours shrink and temperatures drop we tend to get much less sun exposure due to staying indoors and putting on more clothes to stay warm. While this obviously has the benefit of keeping us from freezing to death it can also decrease the amount of vitamin D that we are able to produce in our skin. Vitamin D deficiency is a real entity but it is not nearly as common as is the practice of taking vitamin D supplements might have you think. Supplementation has become quite popular especially amongst athletes but the question remains, is it necessary and does it actually confer any benefits? Also, Brodie Sharpe is the producer of the Run Smarter podcast and as a physiotherapist manages all manner of running injuries. He joins me to discuss common running mistakes and injuries as well as his thoughts on orthotics.

Awesome Podcast for athletes
I am a distance runner, just becoming interested in triathlon, and I have found this podcast to be awesome! The 3-part format holds ones attention, and I can’t decide which I enjoy more- the medical question section, the interview or the Routard section which describes the logistics of a particular race/event. As a fellow physician, I trust Jeff’s scientific perspective and really appreciate his methodical review and analysis of the scientific literature as he answers his listeners’ questions.
