Podcast Addiction

I have recently discovered the wonderful world of triathlon Podcasts. You would be amazed at how many hours race reports, training tips, racing tip and information can be found in Podcast.

There a large number of professional Podcasts out there that are really informative. However, I just discovered The Age Grouper Podcast and can't get enough of it!

Check it out. Jeff and Eric will have you laughing out loud while you run or bike with their real life race reports and real life experiences of the average age grouper triathlete.

Another great feature of this Podcast is that it is an "enhanced" Podcast which means that if you have a video iPod (e.g. the newest Nano) then you can see photos associated with the topic of the Podcast. Very cool.

Hey Erin,

Besides the Tac n Bigin podcast and The Age Grouper (which I love too) I'm a huge fan of Zen and the Art of Triathlon.

Simply Stu is pretty good too. Lots of gear reviews and pro interviews.

In Transit Duo is really good too, although they don't publish as often.

The Jettpack Show as pretty good too, but just ended. Very informal, but cool.

That is all of the ones I can think of off the top of my head, but I'm sure there are a few more that I listen to now and then.

April Fools 1/2 Marathon Plus 15km cool down

After my minor breakdown at work on Friday, I set off on Saturday for Sechelt.  I have run the April Fool's Half Marathon two times and this was my third time.  It never fails to be hilly and hard.   Sunday morning I started off at in Gibsons ready to run to Mission Point Park.  I took it very conservatively knowing that I would be adding another 15kms on at the end of the 'race'.   I crossed the finish line, collected my medal, filled my water bottles, ate a  piece of bagel and a bite of banana and kept running west.   I do not recommend running your longest run before a marathon in Sechelt if you are not used to hills.  That place is full of 12-15% grades both up and down. At the end of the day, I ran from 9:17am - 2pm with a few quick breaks to refill bottles, eat gels and take few rocks out of my shoes.   After a shower and some real food, I was back on the ferry to North Vancouver.  Reward:  White Spot Legendary Burger combo with cheese and a Coke.  

Who is the April Fool for Running this Far?

With only two more long long runs before my marathon taper, I set out on a 34km adventure around Vancouver.  I had great company and I felt pretty good.  The hills in Vancouver won but I think it will be good training for next week's longest run and ultimately the marathon.
