I'm honored to have Tawnee Prazak reading the news with me on this show! We cover the latest in new races, pros being cut out of other races, cyclist drama, and much more.
After that, Kai gives us some open water tips in his segment, "Kai's Coaching for Kids."
Then it's on to the training log! It's peak training weeks time for Ironman Texas, so I take you with me on some epic rides.
(Out training on part of the Ironbaby bike course.)
I talk a lot about training techniques and high volume. There's a lot of strategies to surviving 20+ hours of training a week.
(Texas scenery. He started snorting when I got too close.)
The Training Log is full of technical details on how to do many things. I specifically describe about a way of training that uses your "natural pace." It's really cool!
Along the way, my bike starts coming apart from all the abuse.
(The bamboo bike computer mount I made by hand.)
(More scenery on the bike)
(Attacked by wild animals while stopping for water. Look at the rage in his eyes!)
Among other things, the rear bottle cages flew off my bike on a long ride. Once I escaped the death grip of the beagle-wolf, I was able to stow it away to find it again later.
(I hid my rear bottle cages in the bushes after it blew off the back of my bike.)
In random news, I've made friends with whoever is behind the @TheRealStarky Twitter account. He sent me and Kai a couple of shirts and I might be helping him with a project!
(Kai and I got a TheRealStarky shirt!)
That's it for now. Stay tuned and let Tawnee know on Twitter if you liked her on the show!
