qualityquantityIn this week’s episode, Dave and Randy handle some more listener questions/topics that have been submitted to them on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/OctaneAthletics

The three topics/questions they take on are about…

  • Ian Michael submitted a couple more great suggestions to us. We discuss them this week. The first is Quality vs. Quantity when it comes to training. Also from Ian, we discuss how to best deal with outside stress during training. Thanks Ian.
  • Victoria, who qualified for the Boston Marathon yesterday, submitted questions about the “ideal” race weight as well as questions about feeling hungry constantly during training. Lastly, she asks about what best to eat for optimal performance. Thank you Victoria and congratulations on Boston. I know how hard you worked for that. As a reminder, here is the link to the article I referenced last week and again this week about macronutrient percentages: http://triathlon.competitor.com/2014/04/nutrition/racing-weight-balancing-your-diet_24561

We have some great topics in the queue, so please keep listening. To those of you that submitted questions and topics, we have them captured. We are keeping the podcast to around an hour each week, so we’ll be discussing the rest of them in the coming weeks. Thank you so much for submitting them.
