Dave Jimenez Podcast Leave a Comment


In this episode, Coach Dave is joined by Octane Athletics Training Systems Coach Jaleen and Athlete Jon Femling. Together we discuss one of the most epic races I have heard of… the Mt. Taylor Winter Quadrathlon. Jon has done the race two years in a row, one time training on his own and this past race, working with Jaleen as his coach. The two met while volunteering at the Trans Pecos Ultra Stage Race. We hear all about the training leading up to the race and the race itself. Once we wrap up that interesting conversation, we move to an outstanding second segment.

The second segment of the show is focused on questions that we get very often about TrainingPeaks, our chosen tool for athlete planning and collaboration. We focus on what all the interesting metrics, how to set training zones, and how we use the performance management chart. Grab a pen and a notepad, because there are some outstanding learnings available in this segment. We are always open to follow up questions you have. Just hit us up at the contact the coaches page on the website.

We promised to post two things during the episode.
