Episode 52: Timing of Metabolic Testing | Metrics done right | Guns on Bikes?In this episode we answer questions about metabolic testing. When to do it, why and how to use this information. The question comes from long time listener and friend of the show, Sujean Kim. We make mention of a talented coach, Kristin Codish, who runs a local triathlon club, Triple Threat Tough. She also is a Ph. D candidate, a masterful coach and testing practitioner.
Randy and Dave then discuss the fact that with all this tech, we have a ton of metrics and that doesn’t mean that we should focus on the wrong metrics at the wrong time. When it’s time to perform a zone 2 run, then we focus on heart rate to make sure we do so, even if that is at the expense of things like run cadence or ground contact time.
Finally, listener and friend of the show, Eric Looney asks an interesting question about whether the new Texas open carry gun law that came to be on January 1st means that we’re going to have some folks riding strapped with “an AK47 on their top tube” as Randy suggests. It’s an interesting question and we get into it a bit in this episode.
